IEEE Press Series on Human-Machine Systems

Aims and Scope

The IEEE Press Series on Human-Machine Systems, established in June 2019, is published by IEEE Press and Wiley.  It covers integrated human/machine systems at multiple scales, including areas such as human/machine interaction; cognitive ergonomics and engineering; assistive/companion technologies; human/machine system modeling, testing and evaluation; and fundamental issues of measurement and modeling of human-centered phenomena in engineered systems.
