International Seminar of Ergonomics

Date: May 23 – 25, 2018
Venue: Poznan, Poland

Whenever we organize the International Ergonomics Seminars, we try to create an opportunity to exchange experiences between practitioners and theoreticians who deal with various areas of ergonomics. The upcoming 31st Seminar’s main topic will be “Human factors in a contemporary organization”. We hope it will allow us to broaden more the issues of ergonomics which were discussed in the last years.

In the subsequent editions of our Seminar, we include more and more new centers and initiatives which refer to human factors and ergonomics. We are pleased to announce that this year, as part of the Ergonomics Seminar, there will be also taking place:

  • Conference on Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) resumed after 10 years. Causes and effects
  • Conference of Young Adepts of Ergonomics presenting the activities of Scientific Circles operating in this field of ergonomics.

In the subsequent editions of the Seminar, we try to expand the publishing possibilities. This time, the selected peer-reviewed papers will be published electronically (ePdf) by DesTech. They will submit them for indexation, among others to Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters Web of Science).

We chose Poznan as the place for the Seminar. We hope that it will provide easy access to people from Poland and abroad and will be an attractive place to stay for people who know our city and those who will come here for the first time.

We cordially invite you to Poznan.
