Prof. Guy André Boy, Ph.D. FlexTech Chair Holder and Chair of ESTIA Science Board, , Fellow of the International Academy of Astronautics, Chair of the Human-Systems Integration Working Group of International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), and INCOSE Fellow. He is an Invited Scholar at ISAE-SUPAERO (The French Aerospace Institute of Technology). He was University Professor and Dean, School of Human-Centered Design, Innovation and Art, and HCD Ph.D. & Master's Programs at the Florida Institute of Technology (2009-2017), as well as a Senior Research Scientist at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). He was Chief Scientist for Human-Centered Design at NASA Kennedy Space Center (2010-2016). He was member of the Scientific Committee of the SESAR program (Single European Sky for Air Traffic Management Research) from 2013 to 2016. He was the Chair of the 2012 ISU (International Space University) SSP (Space Studies Program) FIT/NASA-KSC local organizing committee. He was Adjunct Professor at the École Polytechnique in Paris. He was Board Member of the Complex Systems Engineering Master Pedagogic Committee at Paris Saclay University. He was the President and Chief Scientist of the European Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Engineering (EURISCO, a research institute of Airbus and Thales). He co-founded EURISCO in 1992, and managed it since its creation to its closing in 2008. Between 1980 and 1991, he worked in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and human-computer interaction for ONERA (the French Aerospace Lab) as a research scientist, and NASA Ames Research Center as the Advanced Interaction Media Group Lead (1984-1991). Engineer and cognitive scientist, he received his Masters and Doctorate degrees from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (now ISAE-SUPAERO), his Professorship Habilitation (HDR) from Pierre and Marie Curie's University (Paris VI), and his Full Professorship Qualifications in Computer Science and Psychology. Boy actively participated to the introduction of cognitive engineering in France and its development worldwide. He was the co-founder in 2004 of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique (ENSC), a cognitive engineering program at the University of Bordeaux. He co-founded two conference series: HCI-Aero and INCOSE HSI. He is the author of more than 200 articles and two text books, Intelligent Assistant Systems (Academic Press, USA, 1991) and Cognitive Function Analysis (Praeger, USA, 1998), the editor the French handbook of cognitive engineering (Lavoisier, France, 2003), and the Handbook of Human-Machine Interaction (Ashgate, UK) in 2011. His most recent books are Orchestrating Human-Centered Design (Springer, UK, 2013), Tangible Interactive Systems (Springer, UK, 2016) and Human Systems Integration (CRC, USA, 2020). He is a senior member of the ACM-Association for Computing Machinery (Executive Vice-Chair of ACM-SIGCHI from 1995 to 1999), and Chair of the Aerospace Technical Committee of IEA (International Ergonomics Association).
