Due to heavy submission traffic and increased requests, we will continue receiving abstracts for AHFE 2014 and its affiliated conferences. The submission system will be open for receipt of abstracts and paper proposal submissions until December 15, 2013.
Objective and Areas of Interest
You are cordially invited to participate in the 5th International
Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics 2014 and the
Affiliated Conferences, jointly held under one management and one
The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied areas of ergonomics, including, physical ergonomics, cognitive ergonomics, social and occupational ergonomics, cross- cultural aspects of decision making, ergonomics modeling and usability evaluation, human digital modeling, healthcare and special populations, safety and ergonomics in manufacturing, and human side of service engineering. This will be accomplished through the following six modes of communication: keynote presentation, parallel sessions, demonstration and poster sessions, tutorials, exhibitions, and meetings of special interest groups. The five-day conference will start with tutorials. The tutorials will be held on July 19-20, 2014. Tutorials will be offered (both half-day and full-day) at introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels covering the entire spectrum of the conference.
All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by three independent referees from the international program boards. It is anticipated that a broad range of research and applied topics will be covered during the conference. Papers in the theoretical category should deal with models, concepts, and structures; papers in the generic category should present research results of broad applicability; and papers in the applied category should show how the demands of particular application areas shape the way generic research is translated into practical innovation.
