Submissions must be written in English and present unpublished work. They will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and high-quality contributions. They should have a cover page including title, author’s names, postal and electronic addresses, keywords and abstract, and be sent in PDF format. For information on presentation format consult HSI2019 website. All accepted submissions will be presented at HSI 2019 and appear in the Conference Proceedings. Selected full papers will be accessible to INCOSE members and in-cooperation associations (to be announced later).

Research Track

Deadline: January 28, 2019
(up to 8 pages including diagrams and references)
Research Papers present significant contributions to research, development and practice in the field of human-systems integration. Submissions should present new approaches to HSI, emphasizing the interest and originality of the approach and provide complete and substantial support for its results and conclusions. Only unpublished papers will be accepted.

Industry Track

Deadline: January 28, 2019
(From 4 to 6 pages including diagrams)
We solicit papers with practical implications or tied to actual implementation in industry and the operational world. These papers will be presented either in special sessions or combined with related research papers. This track is dedicated to practitioners to share the recent evolution of industrial innovations.

Early Stage Research Track

Deadline: January 28, 2019
(Up to 4 pages including diagrams and references)
Early stage research has not yet been completed, or may be in the phase of developing research questions and approach, results, or practical work. This track encourages the active participation of emerging researchers and professionals to support their work and to involve them in the HSI community.
This track also welcomes submissions from students involved in graduate work not yet sufficiently completed for papers in the regular research track. These papers will be presented in a special session allocat ing more time to discussion and feedback.
Early stage researchers may be assisted by an experienced mentor in their area of research. All submissions should include a brief description of the researcher’s experience.

Panels, Workshops, Posters Demos

Deadline: January 28, 2019
(Up to 2 pages including diagrams and references)
Panels must explore a range of perspectives as well as controversial and burning issues. Panelists should include different backgrounds, i.e., practitioner/researcher, cultural backgrounds, and disciplines.
Workshops are discussion forums of work in progress, which are managed by a chair and a committee, and focused on a specific theme. All accepted workshops are held on a half-day or full-day period.
Posters present research in progress or recently developed industrial devices and innovative methods.
Demos must show ground-breaking innovative products and prototypes.

Paperless Track

Deadline: March 20, 2019
(An Abstract — up to one page)
We solicit paperless contributions with burning work in progress implications. These paperless contributions will be presented either in special sessions or combined with related research papers. This track is dedicated to last minute contributions that are very important to share.
