There will be a series of lectures, presentations, posters, workshops, debates and discussions, together with social events throughout the conference. Choose from over 90 sessions covering fundamental ideas and research, case studies, and emerging trends in the use of ergonomics and human factors to maximise performance and wellbeing.

The papers are now in and a draft programme has been put together. See the draft programme now – updated 17 February.

Workshop submissions

You can submit a workshop proposal until the deadline of 1st October.

We may be able to accept submissions after this date but their inclusion in the programme will depend on whether there is room to accommodate them (assuming they are accepted in the review) and this cannot be guaranteed so make sure you have the best chance and submit before the deadline.

You must submit a description of your workshop, not exceeding two pages in length, and this will be peer reviewed. There is a template to follow for your proposal.

Your proposal has been accepted – what to do next

1. Register to attend the conference

You must register and pay to attend the conference on or before 15th December 2013. If you do not register on or before this date you risk losing your slot in the programme.

2. Prepare your workshop – some advice

A good workshop should build on basic understandings, teach key concepts, and allow practice of some useful skills. Limit what you’re trying to get across to 3 or 4 key goals or skills you want people to take away.

Remember, a workshop is not simply a presentation of what you know, it’s an opportunity for you to impart some knowledge or skill and for participants to learn something new and useful, or build on what they already know.

Start by asking a few questions to get some interaction going and for you to get a feel for the level of understanding.

Make sure you prepare well and have everything you need such as paper, pens etc. And practice, to make sure that what you’re trying to achieve works for both you and the participants.

Make sure you leave enough time to bring the workshop to a useful conclusion to ensure people leave feeling that their time has been well spent.
