The first workshop discussed various terms and concepts around the human-machine interaction related to lethal autonomous weapon systems. The first part of the workshop consisted of an input session with brief presentations on terms and concepts of human control. These presentations provided the basis for a guided discussion around a scenario related to manned-unmanned teaming and autonomous targeting functions in the second part of the workshop.

The second workshop opened with a brief expert input on human-machine interfaces and human control. In the following, participants were invited to discuss a specific scenario in smaller working groups and to thereby exchange different views and approaches to addressing the challenges raised specifically by the scenario and in connection with defining the adequate type and level of human control in general.
