Add this to Calendar



The summer holidays are fast approaching so it’s time for us to call for submissions for our 2019 Ergonomics & Human Factors conference taking place next Spring in the heart of historic Stratford-upon-Avon, from Monday 29 April to Wednesday 1 May.

For the first time we will lead the conference with a day of learning and development opportunities through CIEHF-organised CPD training workshops. On the same day, we’re looking for bright new talent by encouraging students to present their ongoing research at a special Doctoral Consortium, giving them the chance to shine in front of their peers and to learn from each other. 

This will be followed by two days of conference keynotes and a parallel programme of presentations and posters about research, developments and applications from leading professionals working across all sectors. It’s a unique forum for learning and exchange of ideas and information enabling expansion of the discipline on an international stage.

Next year is also the CIEHF’s 70th anniversary of its formation as the Ergonomics Research Society in 1949. We’re celebrating that achievement with a great line up of social activities in the evenings, giving you a chance to relax in a truly lovely riverside setting.
