EPCE: 16th International Conference on Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics

The first Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics conference was held in Stratford-upon-Avon in the UK in 1996.  The conference in 2019 will be the 16th time that the conference has been held.  Over the last 23 years over 1,000 papers have been presented in this conference series by authors from 70 countries.  Since 2001 (the fourth conference) it has been an integral part of the HCI International conference series, and has gone from strength-to-strength, attracting a world-wide audience of scientists and human factors practitioners.

The Engineering Psychology submissions describe advances in applied cognitive psychology that underpin the theory, measurement and methodologies behind the development of human-machine systems.  Cognitive Ergonomics describes advances in the design and development of user interfaces.  Originally, these disciplines were driven by the requirements of high-risk, high-performance industries where safety was paramount, however the importance of good human factors is now understood by everyone.  And not only can it improve safety, it has been demonstrated to save money!

We look forward to welcoming you to the 16th Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics Conference at Walt Disney World in Florida in 2019!
