Ergonomists and Human Factors Specialists are well placed to contribute and even lead the way in tackling the problems raised by complexity in the world around us.
In June 2016 the CIEHF and University of Nottingham will be running the second Human Factors in Complex Systems conference at Nottingham. It will be held at the same venue as the successful initial event last year, which honoured the life and work of Professor John R Wilson in the field of ergonomics and human factors.
The conference will bring together academics and practitioners working in diverse areas such as transport, healthcare, manufacturing and defence.
In the two day programme there will be opportunities to present papers or posters and take part in panel discussions. You will be able to discuss and debate the latest research and ideas on relevant topics, including:
data and systems
design of technologies and systems
methodology and complex systems
modelling / simulation of people in systems
safety, risk and resilience
Submissions are invited in two forms:
1. Abstracts of up to 500 words, to be selected for oral or poster presentation.
2. Panel proposals of up to 300 words, including a list of proposed panel members.
Papers may take the form of novel human factors research contributions, practice-based case studies, or critiques of theories and methods.
Successful abstracts will be published in a conference booklet. We also propose to produce a peer-reviewed, special issue of selected papers from the conference for publication in a leading journal.
The deadline for submissions is 31st January 2016.
