The School of Human-Centered Design, Innovation and Art held the first International Workshop on Human-Systems Integration (HSI) on the Florida Tech campus in early October. The two-day workshop, led by HCDi dean Guy Boy, gathered specialists of human-centered design and system engineering from the United States and the United Kingdom to present talks and seminars as part of the International Council on Systems Engineering HSI working group.
Workshop attendees discussed many aspects of human systems integration such as developments in the field and ways to provide guidance to those designing life-critical systems. Organizations represented at the conference included NASA, U.S Department of Defense, U.K.’s Ministry of Defense and Harris Corp.
Also at the conference, Boy was recognized with an award from NASA/Johnson Space Center in appreciation for his contributions to human systems engineering from the beginning of design. The award was presented by Christie Sauers and Rudolf Balciunas from the JSC Human Systems Integration Employee Resource Group.
