Abstract

Cognitive engineering and decision making has become central to current human factors and ergonomics research and practice. This trend parallels exciting developments in decision making research in general. Experimental economics and judgment and decision making research boom academically and gain much public attention, while theories and economic models of individual choice are expanding and gaining recognition in applications and practical solutions to real-world problems. This symposium brings together three leading figures in different traditions of research in decision making: Gary Klein represents the naturalistic decision making approach. Frank Yates represents research on behavioral decision making and heuristics and biases. Alvin E. Roth, the 2012 Noble laureate for economics, represents game theory and market design applications in economics. The invited speakers will present their views of the different research traditions in decision making and they will provide some thoughts on the trends and possible future developments of research, which we hope will provoke new ideas and discussions in Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making in HFES.
