Abstract:

Situation awareness is currently a highly active area of research that has spread from the aviation community to impact on a variety of operational applications. The objective of the conference was to bring together researchers to critically evaluate the state-of-the-art in situation awareness measurement, discuss the conceptual and methodological benefits and inadequacies of different measurement approaches for different purposes and in different settings, and generate constructive recommendations needed for improving situation awareness measurement practices. The conference was the first to explicitly focus on the need for a rigorous examination of measurement techniques being used and proposed for work in this field. The objectives of the conference were to a bring together professionals from a variety of disciplines to critically evaluate and discuss situation awareness research, b critically assess the state of situation awareness measurement, c discuss the conceptual and methodological benefits and inadequacies of different situation awareness measurement approaches for a variety of purposes in different types of settings, and d generate the constructive criticism necessary to push the state of knowledge forward by developing recommendations for improving situation awareness measurement practices. Partial contents of this report include the following topics Performance Based Measurement Techniques Subjective Measurement Techniques Query Techniques Physiological Measurement Techniques Post-Hoc and Process Assessment Techniques Air Traffic Contral and Situation Awareness Aircraft Systems and Situation Awareness Complex Systems and Situation Awareness and Individual and Team Issues in Situation Awareness. Poster topics are also provided in this publication.
