Plan to attend the 2017 HFES Annual Meeting, which will be held October 9–13 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.

Key Dates

  • Call for Proposals opens: January 9 – Submit Your Proposal!
  • Proposals due: EXTENDED TO MARCH 13
  • Proposal decisions sent: late April
  • Registration opens: July 10
  • Early registration deadline: August 28

All members and nonmembers are invited to submit their work for consideration. The proposal should be up to five formatted pages, as specified in the Call for Proposals. Papers that have been published previously or presented at another professional meeting may not be submitted.

The HFES Executive Council and Technical Program Committee are particularly interested in proposals that address any of the National Academy of Engineering's 14 Grand Challenges, which are part of the Society's strategic focus. The Grand Challenges are as follows:

  • Advance personalized learning
  • Make solar energy economical
  • Enhance virtual reality
  • Reverse-engineer the brain
  • Engineer better medicines
  • Advance health informatics
  • Restore and improve urban infrastructure
  • Secure cyberspace
  • Provide access to clean water
  • Provide energy from fusion
  • Prevent nuclear terror
  • Manage the nitrogen cycle
  • Develop carbon sequestration methods
  • Engineer the tools of scientific discovery

All research and analyses described in your proposal must be complete at the time the proposal is submitted. 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.

Authors of accepted proposals will have the option to print a full paper or an extended abstract in the Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 2017 Annual Meeting. HFES requires a transfer of copyright unless the work was performed by employees of the U.S. or other government, or if 100% of the work was performed under government contract. However, the author may reuse the material for any purpose without restriction or fee.
