Human factors plays a decisive role in flight safety.  Therefore, we have decided to provide a forum for discussion of the current state and future impact of basic and applied research in the field of psychophysiology on flight safety. Internationally known experts from the United States, Russian Federation, and Poland will discuss the following topics:

– Neurophysiological and psychological determinants of human performance
– Effects of adverse environments and high workload on human behavior
– Augmented cognition approaches to command and control systems
– Psychophysiological countermeasures and crew training procedures
– Crew selection and evaluation for short and long term missions.


The workshop will be held on the 16th and 17th of September 2011 at the Warsaw Hilton Hotel and Convention Centre in Warsaw, Poland.
