 Abstract: Since the early 1940’s, Human Factors has been an interdisciplinary research field. Engineers, psychologists, computer scientists, physicists, etc. met to enhance the safety and the productivity of systems that are centered on human-machine interactions (cf. Bernotat, 2008). Tremendous gains have been made in our understanding and in the design of Human-Machine Systems. Nonetheless, many interactions between humans and machines continue to be sub-optimal (Wickens, Hollands, Banbury Parasuraman, 2012). One reason is that technology is constantly evolving and presents a moving goalpost for human factors. In our times, technology is ubiquitous and represents an integral component of our daily lives. With increasing autonomy, it has become more powerful and complex. Given the growing complexity of technological developments, it is paramount for Human Factors researchers to share ideas, to identify common problems and common theoretical concepts underlying human performance in human-machine systems from different domains in a constructive and fruitful discussion of their research projects. The Berlin Summer School Human Factors aims to provide such a forum for junior scientists to discuss their PhD projects. It promotes the transfer and communication of interdisciplinary skills, relevant to Human Factors research. Post-graduates conducting active research in the field of Human Factors, Human-Computer or Human-Machine interaction can also present their research for critical feedback. The Summer School differs from other workshops by giving presenters the opportunity to adapt their presentation format to the stage of their work. Presenters can, for example, choose between a 20-minute presentation followed by a 25-minute discussion and a focus group that starts with a 5-minute impulse talk followed by a 40-min. group work (e.g. brainstorming, moderated discussion). The objective of the summer school is to promote each of the PhD thesis that is presented by solving a specific problem, generating ideas, or proving help with specific methods. Therefore, the summer school aligns with the long history of interdisciplinary work in the field of Human Factors. This year’s topics included aviation, neurophysiology, human-computer interaction, driving, the simulation of virtual environments, attention, and the integration of senses. This is reflective of the tradition of Human Factors in entertaining a diversity of research questions, while always having in its core, a concern for the human user.
