Ergonomists and Human Factors Specialists from around the world in both industry and academia will come together along with delegates from related disciplines such as psychology, health & safety and occupational health, for example, to listen to three days of thought-provoking presentations, workshops and discussions and engage in numerous networking opportunities.
Ergonomics & Human Factors 2017 will feature nearly 80 presentations and workshops from leading ergonomists and human factors specialists across a wide variety of sectors including design, healthcare, rail, technology and people, occupational health, safety culture, cognition, sensing, and interpreting data and systems. New this year will be panel discussions on the subjects of human factors competency and the future of ergonomics and human factors.
Professor of Industrial Psychology Rhona Flin, of Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, will give the Donald Broadbent Lecture.
