Civil infrastructure systems (CIS) (e.g., transportation infrastructure, water utilities, nuclear power plants, airports) require effective systems-level operation and maintenance (O&M) processes to ensure operational safety and efficiency. Such CIS O&M processes demand significant human efforts that include human/team cognition, decision-making, and activities, thus forming Human-Cyber-Physical Systems (H-CPS). Lack of proper comprehension and coordination of human behaviors within H-CPS could affect the cybersecurity and physical safety, and efficiency of CIS O&M in a changing world. Detecting and resolving critical CIS O&M events requires resilient and responsive response procedures that strictly satisfy CIS safety regulations. Comprehending human cognitive, task execution and cyber attacking behaviors during CIS O&M processes is thus crucial for ensuring the safety and efficiency of CIS O&M. This presentation aims at synthesizing H-CPS research studies that capture, diagnose, and predict the impacts of human cognitive and task execution behaviors on CIS O&M safety and efficiency.
