Please join us for our 14th International Naturalistic Decision Making Conference, which will take place 18-21 June 2019 in San Francisco, CA, USA.

Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) emerged in the 1980's to study how people make tough decisions in real-world settings - how they handle time pressure, uncertainty, high stakes,changing conditions, team coordination demands, and often vague goals.What we have learned about NDM has changed the way we train decision makers,the types of decision support we provide, and the way we design organizations.These lessons are currently being applied in the areas of healthcare, law enforcement, firefighting, nuclear and petrochemical power plant operations, military command and control, crisis response, information technology and aviation.

The first NDM conference was held in 1989, so in 2019 we will be celebrating 30 years of research. The NDM conferences alternate between the U.S. and Europe biennially and provide a forum for discussion, debate and engagement between academics and practitioners.  The event will cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:

ˇ        Decision making under stress and uncertainty

ˇ        Strategies to support rapid decision making

ˇ        Decision making in information visualizations,user interfaces design, macrocognition and adaptive performance

ˇ        Decision making in automation and explainable artificial intelligence

ˇ        Decision making for the Internet and consumer decisions

ˇ        Decision making in the workplace and in organizations
