  • First International Symposium of Digital Human Modeling,June 14-16 2011, Lyon

    ================================================== =============
    First International Symposium on Digital Human Modeling

    An event of the Technical Committee on Human Simulation and Virtual
    Environment of the International Ergonomics Association

    ================================================== =============
    June 14-16, 2011, Lyon, France


    Ergonomic evaluation of a product often requires building a physical
    mock-up or prototype, having a group of experts or a representative
    sample of users test it, and then provide an assessment of discomfort
    and ease of use. This is an expensive and time-consuming process
    especially when the product design has to be modified and
    re-validated. Digital Mock-Ups (DMU) together with Digital Human
    Models (DHM), are increasingly used in the early phase of product
    design in order to reduce the product development time and cost. In
    order to help the designer evaluate the future product, the digital
    human should ideally behave like a real human being, not only in terms
    of anthropometry and biomechanics, but also in terms of motion,
    discomfort, attention and perception, and occupational injury. The
    main objective of this symposium is to provide a unique opportunity
    for researchers, software editors and end-users to share most recent
    R&D results and DHM experience.

    Topics of this symposium are:
    - Anthropometry and 3D human body modeling
    - Human functional data
    - Advanced biomechanical human models
    - Motion capture and reconstruction
    - Posture and motion simulation
    - Biomechanics and discomfort
    - Applications and software demonstration
    - Virtual Reality and DHM
    - Mental/cognitive models and integrated models
    - Older, disabled and other special populations
    - Verification and validation of DHMs
    - Model standards and protocols
    - ...

    Symposium description
    - 15-20min presentations (+5 min questions/discussions) for oral session
    - A poster session will also be available in the exhibit room
    - Oral presentations and posters will be selected from abstracts
    submission, 400 words maximum. Upon acceptance, a 4-10 pages extended
    abstract will be published in the conference proceedings. The
    organizing committee is currently checking to publish selected papers
    in a special issue in an international human factors or ergonomics
    - Best poster and best oral presentation will be selected by
    Scientific Committee.
