Human behavior and performance are critical factors in national security effectiveness. The scope of important areas of study in this realm is broad, including such diverse topics as human machine interface, performance of our forces on the battlefield, and the behaviors of our allies and adversaries. The modeling of human behavior and performance can be extremely difficult and complex. In addition, sufficient data to populate and validate models using traditional methods is rarely available. Addressing these challenges can be aided by collaboration of specialists across multiple disciplines such as cognitive science and physiology, psychology, sociology, operations research, and efficient experimentation design and analysis. The purpose of the Human Behavior and Performance Community of Practice is to provide a forum for bringing these diverse research communities together to share information, methods, and the latest research to advance our collective work in this crucial endeavor.
