We start 2019 with paper and presentation contributions at two renowned domestic and international conferences.

Vaishnavi Upadrasta together with Harald Kolrep und Astrid Oehme successfully launched the paper Improve your Task Analysis! Efficiency, Quality and Effectiveness increase in Task Analysis using a Software Tool at the 10th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2019), which Vaishnavi will present there in July in Washington D.C.

As many as four contributions in the fields of human-robot interaction and task analysis were accepted at the 23. Fachtagung der Gesellschaft für angewandte Wirtschaftspsychologie (GWPs), which is hosted in March by HMKW Berlin:

Hanns-Peter Horn will present on Now what might you be up to, mate? – Forschungsbedarfe zu Intuitivität und Berechenbarkeit robotischer Systeme im Alltag.

Paul Schweidler will report on Der Einfluss der äußeren Gestaltung eines Service‐Roboters auf Anthropomorphismus und User‐Experience as well as on ERICa – Mensch‐Roboter‐Interaktionen klassifizieren mit dem Environment Robot Interaction Canvas, the latter together with Astrid Oehme and Thomas Jürgensohn.

Vaishnavi Upadrasta will talk about a method for assessing the quality of a task analysis.

Our contributions are closely related to the research projects KUKoMo, INTUITIV and ARAIG. We are very much looking forward to an active discussion with the conference participants.
