The Safety Institute of Australia (SIA) has invited the HFESA to present an ergonomics stream as a part of their #SAFETYSCAPE Convention being held in Sydney between 22-23 May 2019 at the Sydney International Convention Centre.
A recent Monkey survey was forwarded to HFESA members and we are coordinating a half day ergonomics stream to be included as part of the overall conference.
We envisage this stream will include a mix of case studies, projects and research.
The SIA has capacity to consider any Ergonomics workshops as part of their conference stream and these will be considered in addition to the HFESA half day ergonomics stream.
The SIA has requested that all submissions should address how the concept or research can be translated from theory into real life work for practitioners and professionals.
Essentially any area of interest you would have as a practicing Ergonomist / Human Factors professional / researcher would be appropriate, so please just assume whatever topic you would like to present would be a good fit, be it transport, manual handling, cognitive etc. It would probably be a plus to have a diverse range of interests and a mix of practitioners and researchers. Anything from a case study from your practice to a more theoretical presentation and everything in between would be appropriate.
Information on submission categories
Oral presentations will be limited to 25 minutes for the presentation followed by five minutes of questions and should present original new findings and contributions to the field.
Note that oral presentations will not be restricted to research submissions. Practitioners are encouraged to submit case studies.
Details of maximum size of posters will be advised prior to conference registration. Posters are likely to be displayed in social or networking areas at the conference. This will be dictated by the SIA.
Workshop proposals can be submitted for two-hour, four hour or whole day workshops. Workshops are designed to be based around activities or demonstrations and submissions will need to outline what participants will learn from the session, as well as what participants will do in the session (i.e. specify the types of activities or strategies that will be employed.)
Submissions are required by the 7 December 2018
How to make a submission
Submissions will be made by emailing Sharon Todd at Sharon_Todd@me.com
The SIA will offer discounted registration for all HFESA members. Details will follow.
