Software representations of humans, including aspects of anthropometry, biometrics, motion capture and prediction, as well as cognition modelling, are known as digital human models (DHM), and are widely used in a variety of complex application domains where it is important to foresee and simulate human behavior, performance, safety, health and comfort.

Automation depicting human emotion, social interaction and functional capabilities can also be modeled to support and assist in predicting human response in real world settings. Such domains include medical and nursing applications, education and learning, ergonomics and design, as well as safety and risk management.

The DHM Conference, an affiliated conference of the HCI International Conference, arrived at its 11th edition and solicits papers from academics, researchers, industry and professionals, on a broad range of theoretical and applied issues related to Digital Human Modelling and its applications.
