2012 Human Factors Prize Topic: The HF/E Science Behind Product Design

Human Factors, the flagship journal of HFES, invites contributions that explore how the science of human factors/ergonomics can facilitate the design of many types of products. The specific product is not the focus; rather, we are seeking research that would facilitate product design in general. With this in mind, a contribution that describes how HF/E science has influenced an aspect of a product - the display on a smart phone, for example - would also be appropriate, as long as the focus is on the research behind that aspect.

Manuscripts should be uploaded to the Manuscript Central Web site ( between June 1 and July 1. UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 10, 2012: The winner will be notified by September 5 (formerly August 15) and invited to make a presentation about the work during a session at the HFES 56th Annual Meeting, to be held October 22-26 in Boston. The award carries a $10,000 cash prize and publication in the December 2012 issue of Human Factors.

Eligibility requirements and other details may be found at the Human Factors Prize Web page, and the FAQ page,
