30th Anniversary Celebration of the Board

on Human-Systems Integration
December 2, 2010


Norman at 30th


In early December 2010, the NRC’s Committee on Human Systems Integration (COHSI), formerly the Committee on Human Factors (COHF), celebrated its 30th anniversary at a special gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The event featured presentations by leaders in the field (including Donald Norman, pictured above, and David Dinges), testimonials by former COHSI chairs, and presentations by key sponsors. It saluted the longevity and maturation of what was once considered to be an emerging field of endeavor.
During this special event, Robert Hauser, Interim Director for the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (DBASSE) announced the repositioning of COHSI as the Board on Human-Systems Integration (BOHSI). This new designation recognized the broader charge now covered by BOHSI and will help to ensure that the field is positioned for even greater impact in the years to come, involving both military and non-military systems.  
The following videos highlight 30 years of work in human factors and human-systems integration at the National Research Council, at various federal agencies, and include provocative presentations by leading scientists. These videos also include discussions of where HSI is going in the next decade and beyond:
