This year marks 40 years since Dr. David Woods and Dr. Erik Hollnagel published “Cognitive Systems Engineering: New Wine in New Bottles.” To celebrate the contributions of Cognitive Systems Engineering to technology/systems research & design, the Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory and HFES Student Chapter at Ohio State are excited to host a series of panels comprised of major contributors to the field.

Special guests Dr. John Flach and Dr. Matthew Bolton will be joining Dr. Shannon Morrison and Dr. Emily Patterson along with CSEL faculty and researchers to discuss (1) how we can use automation as teammates to support system resilience & decision-making, (2) the implications of AI from a systems perspective, and (3) future careers in human factors, technology, and engineering, and how we can overcome diversity stagnation within the field.
