2nd IEEE International Conference on Human-Machine Systems (ICHMS 2021)
Magdeburg, Germany, 8-10 September 2021 (Hybrid Event)

Conference Theme: Human Centered Systems for our Digital World


The 2021 IEEE International Conference on Human-Machine Systems (ICHMS) 
will be held in Magdeburg, Germany. ICHMS will provide a remarkable 
opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new 
challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions 
in the important area of Human-Machine Systems.

ICHMS specifically covers contributions on research related to 
integrated human/machine systems at multiple scales, and includes areas 
such as human/machine interaction; cognitive ergonomics and engineering; 
assistive/companion technologies; human/machine system modeling, testing 
and evaluation; and fundamental issues of measurement and modeling of 
human-centered phenomena in engineered systems. The organization of 
ICHMS is based on the following Track types: Regular Track, Special 
Tracks (selected through a call) and PhD Track. The conference will also 
feature plenary speeches, panel sessions, tutorials, and poster 
sessions. Contributions are expected from academia, industry, and 
management agencies. All accepted papers will be published in conference 
proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.

Complete manuscripts must be electronically submitted through the 
conference website using EasyChair (https://www.ichms2021.de/cfp). 
Submitted manuscripts can be Regular (6pp), Short (4pp) or Poster (3pp) 
papers in IEEE two-column format, including figures, tables, and 
references. Please use the templates at Manuscript Templates for IEEE 
Conference Proceedings 
(https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html) to prepare 
your paper. All submissions MUST be in PDF format. All accepted papers 
will be published in Conference Proceedings in IEEE Xplore.

* Virtual/hybrid Participation *
We are currently planning to run IEEE ICHMS 2021 primarily as a regular 
conference with physical attendance, offering a rich social program to 
trigger creative and inspiring discussions. However, we are prepared to 
switch to a fully online interactive conference if necessary. In any 
way, we will offer ways for virtual/hybrid participation for those 
participants who are, e.g. due to travel restrictions, unable to attend 
or who prefer to attend virtually.
