The conference scientific chair, Dr Jono Davy, is currently constructing a full 3-day programme which will include two keynote speakers:

1. Prof. Paul Salmon of the University of the Sunshine Coast

2. Prof. Peter Hancock from the University of Central Florida

 

The conference will include round table discussions, scientific paper presentations, and poster presentations.

 

There will be a round table discussion with representatives from our “sister” societies on defining “ergonomics competence” and a round table discussion with representatives from Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, and Botswana on growing ergonomics in Africa.

 

We have a number of key sponsors who will be helping us (financially) to host the conference and these include the Air Traffic and Navigation Services, the RailwaySafety Regulator, Thales, Comair, and the Birchwood Hotel. As with previous conferences, there will be generous prizes for the best papers.
