LEARN MORE ABOUT The IEEE International Conference on Engineering & MIS 2017


The International Conference on Engineering & MIS 2017 will take place in Monastir, Tunisia, 08-10 May, 2017. The ICEMIS 2017 is organized by the International Association of Researchers (IARES), a non-profit international association for the researchers. The ICEMIS is co-sponsored by the Monastir University, Monastir, Tunisia. In addition, IEEE Tunisia Section and IEEE Tunisia SMC Chapter technically sponsor the ICEMIS 2017 that includes sessions and different tracks.


The conference has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and MIS subjects. The ICEMIS conference serves as good platforms for our members and the entire engineering and MIS community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. ICEMIS 2017 Conference will be held at the Roses Beach Hotel, Monastir, Tunisia. Note that the ICEMIS 2016 Conference was held at the Ibn Zohr University in Agadir, Morocco. The IEEE ICEMIS 2016 is  available in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library via the following link http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/mostRecentIssue.jsp?punumber=7725027.

Social network analysis and interactive device design analysis

All interactive systems respond to what users do by changing what they are doing Ñ though sometimes maybe not in the way you intended! What they were doing before and after any particular user action defines a network. These networks have many interesting properties, which can be readily related to social and other sorts of more familiar networks. For example, hubs are well-connected, and off is usually easy to get to from anywhere, so off is usually, but not always, a hub. It turns out that many interactive systems have quite quirky designs, and network analysis can pinpoint design problems. For example, anaesthetists often switch devices (ventilators etc) off-and-on-again to adjust patient parameters; it turns out that off is often the most between state and therefore usually the best route to get a device to do what you want. It would have been preferable, instead, to design systems so standby was the most between state, as that would allow anaesthetists to adjust some patient values without having to reset all of them, which is what off does. Such design problems may be critical in an operation. In short, this talk will discuss usability problems (particularly medical devices, where design really matters) from the perspective of network analysis..

Let's Stop Killing People - Designing with Human Error

We often worry about pilot error, user error, and human error at the "sharp end" where the action is, but many problems are caused by design errors, which in turn are caused by human error amongst the designers and engineers and programmers who build the systems. This keynote gets the audience to experience some of critical errors for themselves, explores a range of techniques to increase resilience (better managing error), and finally shows how important it is to reflect on error culture in fields such as the healthcare industry.
