The objective of the symposium is to provide an international forum for the exchange and sharing of the latest scientific and technological developments in human-machine systems research. The symposium highlighted the transformative impacts in research, theory, and application that are the result of recent technological advances. The objective of this symposium is to exchange ideas and further understanding in the areas of Human-Machine Systems, Human-Computer Interaction, Intelligent and Autonomous Systems and Decision Support Systems, etc. Indeed, nowadays progressive system redesigns are needed with respect to human computer/machine interactions to increase system reliability and transparency by increasing human-system interactions, and especially a human user's proactive participation, rather than by eliminating the human out of the loop. Such a view on the human-machine system design regards a human and an automated agent as equivalent partners, and through their mixed-initiative interactions some novel relations of mutual dependency and reciprocity would emerge as well as flexible changes of role-taking are expected. At the same time, however, introducing new technologies may bring about a new type of complex interactions among elements, and analysis is becoming necessary to focus not only on ‘Sharp-Ends’ which immediately cause unsafe event but also ‘Blunt-Ends’ which consists background of unsafe event. This is the critical feature of the socio-technical systems and is set as a main theme of this symposium at Kyoto, Japan.
