Human Factors in Complex Systems Conference, June 2016
The conference was attended by human factors specialists from a range of industries and domains including transport and in particular rail, healthcare, security and defence, systems and safety, automation and support systems, and human-computer interaction.
The themes from the conference highlighted the role of human factors and ergonomics specialists to not only act as practitioners, but to identify emerging behaviours from systems. A key theme was recognising the value of our data and methods in the field of human factors in both academia and industry but also in developing these to follow in the footsteps of the ‘elite’, including Professor John R Wilson, James Reason, and Jens Rasmussen.
The conference was set up in 2014 by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF), and the University of Nottingham in honour of the work of Professor John R Wilson in ergonomics and human factors.
