Alan Pope
NASA, Retired, Distinguished Research Associate
United States


Brief Bio
Alan Pope is an engineer and psychologist who has been conducting Manned Systems Engineering research as a Research Scientist at NASA Langley Research Center since 1980. Dr. Pope’s research is aimed at developing human response measurement technologies to assess the effects of advanced crewstation concepts on the crew's ability to perform flight management tasks effectively.  He originated the scientific study of hazardous awareness states in monitoring environments and physiologically-based adaptive automation, and co-invented the 2014-patented NASA LaRC MindShift technology. Since 1995, he has conducted re search and published journal articles and book chapters developing his concept of biocybernetic adaptation. Dr. Pope is inventor of over 25 inventions and holds 9 U.S. patents in the fields of physiologically modulated simulations, virtual reality and games, and aviation synthetic vision systems. He was awarded the 1998 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Contribution to Society Award, the 2000 NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal, the DARPA 2006 Foundations of Augmented Cognition Award, the 2012 NASA Exceptional Service Medal and the 2013 NASA Langley Technology Transfer Mentor of the Year Award. Dr. Pope holds an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee (1969) and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Florida (1975). In 1988, he co-founded the Behavioral Medicine Institute in Virginia, U.S., and engaged in clinical practice there until 2001. Dr. Pope was elected to serve on the Board of Directors, Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 2010 – 2012. He has served as adjunct faculty at three Virginia universities and has served as Adjunct Research Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Eastern Virginia Medical School since 1995.

Chen Wang
Xinhua Net
China


Brief Bio
Chen Wang is the vice director at FMCI, Xinhua Net. Her interest is on user experience by using wearables. She received the bachelor of science in telecommunication engineering from Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications of China, and the master of science in electrical engineering from Delft University of Technology of the Netherlands. During her PhD study in the National Research Center of Mathematics and Computer Science, the Netherlands, Chen Wang shifted to physiological computing on user experience evaluation. Her research is unique, combining Human-Computer Interaction, data science, hardware d esign, and networking. Chen Wang has published her results in top venues like ACM CHI, ACM CSCW, ACM C&C, NordiCHI, PhyCS, and QoMEX. Chen Wang has rich experience on measuring group user experience by using physiological sensors. She designed and developed the different version of physiological sensors, which are suitable for simultaneously measuring group user experience in field studies, e.g., theaters, museum visitors, and learning environment. The self- developed sensors have two versions: adult and children, which have been extensively tested in theater performances, commercial dance events, and distributed learning environment. In 2017, Chen Wang joined FMCI of Xinhua Net and closely collaborated with creative industries. The collaboration resulted in several consultancy projects with giant companies in China. ...
