Proposals Are Invited for the 2012 Annual Meeting - Deadline Extended
Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The deadline to submit proposals for the 56th Annual Meeting has been extended to Thursday, March 22 at 8 pm EST/5 pm PST.

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society invites members and nonmembers to submit proposals for the HFES 56th Annual Meeting, which will take place October 22-26, 2012, at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Case studies, debates, demonstrations, competitive product designs, new methodologies, on-site experiments, and posters are welcome.

For complete formatting and submission information, please be sure to read the Call for Proposals prior to submitting your work.

Papers that have been published previously or presented at another professional meeting may not be submitted. All research and analyses described in a proposal must be complete when the proposal is submitted. Program chairs may reject, with or without review, papers that do not present completed work. The sole exception to this policy is for student work submitted for consideration in the Student Forum track, in which case the proposer may report on work in progress.

Note that for all accepted submissions, one of the authors must attend the meeting to present the work. All presenters are required to pay the meeting registration fee.

For regular updates on the 2012 Annual Meeting, be sure to bookmark and check back regularly.
