Rhodes 2020

The organizing committee of HUMANIST conference 2020 takes the COVID-19 situation seriously and is following the recommendations for appropriate action from health advisory agencies.

We recommend all attendees & authors to defer to the advice of their relevant national health agencies regarding their travel to Rhodes Island in September this year.

Currently, we do not plan to postpone or cancel the HUMANIST Conference from 24 to 25 September 2020. Nonetheless, we are planning for potential risks and making plans to ensure that HUMANIST Conference is safe and accessible for our community. We will update everyone through our regular communication channels and mailing list on any changes.

We would like to reassure potential attendees and partners that we are aware of our responsibilities as organizers of a large international scientific meeting. We thank you for your trust in us and wish everyone safe health.

Human Factors challenges of Vehicle Automation and Smart Mobility

24-25 September 2020, Rhode Island, Greece

The 7th International HUMANIST Conference will bring together researchers, experts and stakeholders from several multidisciplinary communities that are active in the field of Human Factors in Transport. It is a unique and attractive forum to present current and planned activities as well as to share ideas and experiences.

  • How is the road users behaviour, safety and mobility affected by new traffic scenarios including automated vehicles, novel vehicle types, car-sharing schemes and Mobility as a Service? 
  • What concerns, needs and expectations do people have in relation to these emerging technologies and services? How do people see themselves in the digital transport epoch? How can inclusion and accessibility be promoted and ensured?
  • Which are the priorities and technological solutions to be envisaged and adopted within a smart cities transportation environment?
  • Which directions should ergonomic  designs evolve in  so as to ensure adequate passive safety in the changing environments?
  • How and to what extent should current HMI (Human Machine Interaction) concepts and tools be adapted to address the evolving technologies?
  • How to integrate non-connected and potential socially excluded citizens within future transport systems. 

Papers on these topics and many more besides will be presented and discussed in Rhodes during the 7th international HUMANIST Conference.

To be noticed: The 23rd IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems is taking place on September 20 – 23, 2020 in Rhodes, just before the HUMANIST Conference.
