Welcome to the first days of summer. We can always use a bit more sunshine and outdoor time. So enjoy it while it lasts!
Thanks to the hard work of the Symposium Committee, led by Leslie Pickett and Miriam Joffe, we have a great line up of speakers for the October 16, 2014 event at the Museum of Flight, Seattle WA. Registration will be available soon. Our Keynote speaker is Mark Benden, CPE, PhD, the Director of the Ergonomics Centers at Texas A&M Health Science Center. Dr. Benden will be discussing "Future Ergonomics Assessments Using Advanced Technology". Topics, such as, new apps and wearable sensors will be discussed.
The Council, with Ernesto Carcamo's lead, has been discussing the best ways to engage the "Young Professional" and educate them about the field of HF/E, as well as promote the profession to the general public. We are currently discussing how we can locate and actively involve the "Young Professional" in HF/E events. Once we find partnership within the community we want to promote an event, such as a contest to find solutions to an interesting and hopefully real life HF/E issue. If anyone has any good leads on how to make this happen i.e. finding the "Young Professionals" and finding a employer with a problem to solve please share this with Ernesto.
We will send out an announcement to our contacts when the Symposium is open for registration.
