Space Architecture: Designing Human Systems Interaction – Session E5.3
25th Symposium On Space Activity & Society, 65th International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2014)

In response to the diversifying needs of users in space exploration and commercial spaceflight, interest in human-machine interfaces has continued to grow in space agencies, industry, and academia. At the same time, the wider individual and societal implications of the human-technology relationship have evolved into a key theme of interdisciplinary engagement with space. This session explores conceptual and applied issues related to the design of human interaction with space systems. In the context of habitats and infrastructure in the space and ground segment, these include interfaces of work stations, consoles, and devices; tools and payload hardware used in EVA and IVA; remote interaction; human-robotic partnerships; ambient intelligence, ubiquitous computing, and beyond. The application of these concepts to designs must provide humans with the necessary tools for work and off-duty settings while addressing their psychological and physiological needs, in full recognition of the technical challenges presented by the space environment. Focusing on the discussion of solutions developed in collaboration with architects and designers, we invite submissions from practitioners and theorists working on human-rated systems within, or collaborating across, the humanities, life sciences, human factors engineering, systems engineering, and planning in space and analogous environments.

IAC2014 is organised by the International Astronautical Federation
