The workshop is the third and last workshop in a series of three devoted to applying human factors and the principles of social networking to airport security.
The workshop will discuss the applications of the findings of BEMOSA (Behaviour Modelling for Security in Airports) in daily airport management and training programs to enhance security decisions by airport employees.
The workshop will focus on translating the groundbreaking findings into guidelines for a novel training program for airport personnel. The training program will be based upon unique behavior models developed by BEMOSA.
The BEMOSA evidence-based simulation and training program will eventually lead to reduced false alarms, increased passenger satisfaction and improved labor relations, ultimately leading to improved profitability.
The workshop is specifically designed to meet the needs of airport security professionals, airport management officials, human resources and operations, providers of airport security services and technology, providers of airport security training services, public officials and policy makers.
The workshop will be held in the offices of DG Research of the European Commission in Rue du Champs de Mars 21. The event is free of charge, but registration is obligatory. You can register either through through this link: http://www.bemosa.eu/
BEMOSA is a Europe-wide research project aimed at improving security in airports through enhancing the capability of airport authority personnel to correctly detect potential security hazards and reduce false alarms.
BEMOSA, which is co-funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, is developing a behavior model that aims to describe how people make security decisions in the face of reality during “normal routine” and crisis situations. This is expected to result in increased security, reduced false alarms and increased profitability.
