By Don Harris

This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the seventh foreign convention on Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics, EPCE 2007, held in Beijing, China in July 2007 within the framework of the twelfth overseas convention on Human-Computer interplay, HCII 2007 with eight different thematically comparable conferences.

The ninety five revised papers awarded have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from a variety of submissions. The papers permitted for presentation completely hide the thematic quarter of Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics, addressing the next significant issues: cognitive and affective concerns in person interface layout, cognitive workload and human functionality, cognitive modeling and measuring, in addition to safeguard severe purposes and systems.

Sample text

The third part shows how human-centered design can be improved by taking into account cognitive stability and perceived complexity. In the balance of the paper, a discussion is started on related issues. 1 Passive and Active Stability Stability is a concept that physicists know well. The pendulum is a good example of passive stability. A pendulum consists of a mass attached by a string to a pivot point. When the mass is moved aside, it tends to return to its initial state. We talk about stable balance or equilibrium.

I fully admit that these things are not necessarily obvious in the early stages of the design process. However, they may guide to set up experimental tests and interpret their results in order to incrementally improve the initial design. 3 Human Adaptation and Expertise As already said, cognitive stability is a matter of expertise when the machine only offers unstable possibilities. Flying an airplane requires an expertise that consists in using skills coming from a long and intense training and experience.
