    The 2017 Symposium will feature two keynote speakers:

    Keynote Speaker: Victor Riley, Associate Technical Fellow, Boeing Flight Deck/Crew Operations


    Title:  From Research to Reality

    Presentation Summary: Vic spent nineteen years doing human factors research at the Honeywell Systems and Research Center, and realized at the end of that time that nothing he had done during his Honeywell career had made its way into an actual product. In this presentation, he will describe moving from research to engineering, from theory to product, and from abstract users to real ones. Along the way, he will touch on why design really does matter, how organizations unwittingly conspire against technology transfer from research to products, and why human factors research is often so difficult to apply in the real world.

    Keynote Speaker: Dr. Charles A. Fox, leads the Visualization Practice Group at Engineering Systems Inc.


    Title:  A Picture is Worth 1000 Words:  Seeing the Unwitnessed Facts in Accidents

    Presentation Summary: In a global environment for resolving disputes, visual communication crosses the barriers of technical expertise and culture allowing subject matter experts to better understand data and deliver their findings in the universal language of imagery.  Using psychological testing on the audience, demonstrations of data capture technology, virtual reality (VR) applications, and case specific examples of engineering visualization used in litigation, Charles (Chuck) Fox, Ph.D., will provide an engaging and entertaining presentation illustrating the effectiveness of scientific and engineering graphics in conveying complex concepts to fact finders.  He will also provide a behind the scenes glimpse at how great demonstratives are made. The presentation is an interactive demonstration of best practices for using demonstrative evidence and aids in technically oriented, often high-stakes litigation. But lessons learned from a career in the litigation industry stretch far beyond litigation.
