Do you want to:

– Present your work at the largest ergonomics and human factors event in the UK?
– Have your paper published in the conference proceedings?
– Be part of an event that this year had over 300 attendees?

If the answer to any of these is yes then please consider submitting a paper for Ergonomics & Human Factors, the annual conference of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.

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.

Last year’s event included a number of successful full day sessions covering aviation, healthcare, rail, design, occupational health, systems and safety. This is a structure that we are looking to repeat for 2017 so if you operate within a sector that you feel could supply enough papers to create a full day or a half day session then please encourage others within your sector to submit papers.

We are looking for papers and posters covering all sectors, to showcase the breadth and depth of the discipline.

Read the details of how to submit a paper, along with our guide for authors.
