Rapid changes of information technologies lead to boosting the strength and efficiency of human activity. These technologies have an influence on every particular area of human life, including education, science, business, leisure time, entertainment, state administration, health care. Human life is greatly dependent on these systems’ efficiency and performance. HSI conference has been prepared as a platform for exchanging ideas, knowledge, skills and experiences in interactions between man and these systems. HSI conference series has become a major international conference in the field of Human System Interactions, human system science and engineering, human factors in large complex systems, human space computing and cyber-physical systems, human environment interactions, and socialtechnical systems.

This edition of the International Conference on Human System Interactions will be held in Hotel Costa da Caparica, from 16 to 18 June, 2014. The conference covers theory, design and application of humansystem interactions in the areas of science, education, business, industry, services, humanity, environment, health, and government. Aside from the regular presentations, the conference will include keynote addresses with speakers from both industry and academia.
