About the event

Ergonomics & Human Factors 2018 is the largest international conference of its type in the UK. It brings together people from all sectors to exchange ideas and information from an academic, practitioner and customer perspective.

We want to hear what you have to say about new developments, achievements and challenges in all areas of ergonomics and human factors. And we have lots of suggestions about how you might get your message across:
– Engage the audience with a presentation about your research investigations and findings.
– Attract attention with an eye-catching poster illustrating your work.
– Challenge yourself to explain a headline project in a Ten Minute Talk.
– Draw interest with a presentation about an innovative case study.
– Immerse delegates in a problem-solving workshop.
– Share useful tips and tricks in a ‘How to’ session.
– Lead a discussion about difficult issues.


We’re particularly interested in topics that are growing in significance in today’s fast-changing world. And in how our discipline is evolving and keeping pace to maintain relevance in the face of new and emerging challenges and opportunities.

We’re looking for submissions from any sector on the following topics:
– Autonomous control
– Life in the digital age
– Vigilance and fatigue
– Physiological measures
– Cross-sector learning
– Establishing human factors in new domains
– What works and doesn’t work in practice

…but if you have something to say that doesn’t fit these topics but is new, innovative or thought-provoking, we want to hear it too!

All accepted research paper and case study (in both oral and poster format) contributions to the conference will be published in a newly-designed digital book of proceedings. There will be flexibility in terms of word length, presentation and layout to accommodate different types of submissions and to make the content more accessible and informative. All submissions will be double blind peer reviewed.

How to submit

Submissions can be made in any of the following formats by using the appropriate template. We require full papers/proposals to be submitted at this stage, not just abstracts.

Research paper: This could be an oral or poster presentation and would suit academics and others who wish to present their research findings. Maximum 8 pages in length.

Case study: This could be an oral or poster presentation and would suit practitioners and others with something worth sharing that provides new ideas and different perspectives. Or this could be a combination of a literature or guidance review of a topic alongside a case study. Maximum 8 pages in length.
