“Cross-disciplinary Communication and Collaboration in CPHS Research”
Saturday, December 15th, 11:45am-1:45pm, room Hibiscus
There is an increasing need for engineers to explicitly understand and characterize the way in which engineered systems affect, and are affected by, humans. However, to do so, engineers require the expertise of social scientists and/or human factors engineers to strengthen their theoretical developments, models, and data collection and analysis methods. This is true across a range of sectors, including energy, transportation, manufacturing, robotics, and healthcare.
- facilitate networking among researchers in both engineering and the social sciences,
- discuss strategies for successful collaboration across disciplines, and
- identify critical cross-disciplinary research questions as they relate to the topics mentioned above.
The workshop will consist of two invited speakers, followed by a moderated panel discussion. Lunch will be provided.
