Cognitive ergonomics and HCI encompass a wide range of research and development activities in both academic and industrial environments, and the book satisfies a clear need for the dissemination of the knowledge generated by work in progress, or completed. Detailed reports of numerous long-term research projects are provided, set within a framework for describing cognitive ergonomics activities and understanding their relationships. The contributors provide detailed coverage of substantial empirical investigations, rather than summarizing specific areas of theoretical speculations. The different contributions are integrated and have been rigorously edited within guidelines set by the editors in the first chapter. Resource computer scientists, ergonomicists and behavioral scientists will be interested in this volume.
