Digital Human Modelling By Women

Digital Human Modelling By Women (DHMW) is an international group dedicated to promoting women scientists, and inspiring girls around the world. DHMW wants to empowering women to exchange ideas, results, and visions in STEAM.

DHMW in HF would provide an international forum for women who are passionate about gender equity in the field of human factors to explore the barriers and issues on underrepresentation, and models for increasing the pipeline. Our major goal is to build a community of Women in Digital Human Modelling that will be enable the participants to be aware of and to be engaged in improving the environment for women in human factors careers.

Key note speakers:

Kalle Sandzén

Kalle Sandzén

Senior Lecturer/Assistant professor in Animation, Stockholm University of the Arts, Department of film and media.

Kalle co-founded and ran animation production companyAlphaville AB for ten years, before the company was bought by Chimney group. Kalle worked as 3D-lead, VFX supervisor and technical director on around 300 commercials, shortfilms and series for TV, cinema, public art and museums. Kalle has mainly worked with 3D-animation but also stop motion and most techniques for traditional animation.

At Stockholm University of the Arts, Kalle works on a joint research project where his part is about visual effects and creating reality, and the function of ”real” in the visual part of fiction film.

Johan Iraeus

Johan Iraeus

Chalmers University of Technology, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Vehicle Safety, Injury Prevention

Johan’s research is focused on biomechanics, with emphasis on car crashes. The research is mainly carried out using computer simulations with human body models, but also includes database studies. A field of specialization is population based simulations, i.e. how system changes influence a population. The goal is to be able to predict the effect of new countermeasures in terms of saved lives/reduced harm, before the system is on the market. Johan defended his PhD thesis in 2015 and before that he worked for more than ten years with computer aided vehicle development, primarily crashworthiness.
