One-Day FREE, Members only conference

Massey University Wellington Campus, just south of Pukeahu Park

As well as the ‘traditional’ paper presentations the event is an opportunity for update and discussion around current HFE projects and professional practise developments in NZ.

We’re holding a one-day, FREE, members-only conference in Wellington on September 1st.  

As well as the ‘traditional’ paper presentations, the event is an opportunity for update and discussion around current HFE projects and professional practise developments in NZ. 

We welcome expressions of interest covering all aspects of human factors and ergonomics, including practical application, methods development, research, and industry issues. Given the recent addition of Māori cultural elements to our Competence Framework, we will have a Māori theme, and particularly welcome papers that present or discuss these issues.

Interested in presenting a full paper, short ‘thesis’ presentation, or poster? 

  • Tell us about it by Sunday 4th July
  • See submission guidelines below. 

What’s the conference fee?

  • None, kore, zip, zero, nada. Really.

When do I have to register by?

We’re limited to 50 people, so please confirm you’re coming by August 18th. 

What are the key dates

  • 4th July: Deadline for submission of abstracts, papers, posters.
  • 15 August: Programme and submissions finalised.

What’s the venue?

Massey University Wellington Campus, just south of Pukeahu Park.
