This is a special year for the CogSIMA conferences. It is the 5th annual conference! It is also 10 years since the first situation Management Workshop, SIMA 2005 was held. We are looking forward to another year furthering research in the area of Cognitive Situation Awareness and Decision Support. The aim of the CogSIMA conference is to provide a venue for presenting scientific results of multi-disciplinary studies specific to complex heterogeneous dynamical systems that include humans, computer systems and physical systems whose behaviors depend on situations. The goal of the CogSIMA conference is to bring together academic, industry, and military researchers in the fields of Computer Science, Human Factors, Cognitive Science and Experimental Psychology to develop interdisciplinary approach to situation awareness and decision support systems.
