Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for postgraduate research students studying and working in areas related to ergonomics and human factors to meet each other and learn about each others’ research interests and activities. It is intended to provide a constructive and supportive forum for discussion of research ideas and opportunities, and to strengthen the community of researchers in ergonomics and human factors.

In 2014 the Doctoral Consortium will be held on Monday 7th April as part of the IEHF’s Ergonomics & Human Factors conference, EHF2014, in Southampton. The day will consist of short student presentations, small group workshops, networking and will be facilitated by members of the Doctoral Consortium Programme Committee. You will also be able to attend the Donald Broadbent Lecture which is part of the main conference.

Please note that if you book to attend the whole conference, then attendance at the Doctoral Consortium is included for the Monday.

Your abstract

Abstract submission is now closed.

What happens if my abstract is accepted?

If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to participate in the Consortium at which point you should book and pay for your attendance. The whole day will cost just £50 plus VAT and this will include refreshments and lunch. If you book the EHF2014 All-inclusive Gold Package for Students, you can attend the Doctoral Consortium for free!

You will also be expected to submit a poster for the main conference. If you are able to attend the whole conference, you will also be invited to participate in the ‘Just a Minute’ poster presentations on the Wednesday. If you can’t attend, your poster will still be displayed for delegates to view.

See this as an opportunity to get feedback on your work, whether it’s the theoretical framework that you are using or a specific study that you would like to present. You will also be welcome to bring along any technologies, systems or products that tyou are developing to demonstrate either during your talks or informally during the breaks and lunch interval.
