As a leading interdisciplinary community of people dedicated to promoting and advancing the discovery and exchange of knowledge concerning the characteristics of human beings that are applicable to the design of systems, products, tools, and environments of all kinds, HFES is one of a kind.
HFES is an important bridge between research and applied knowledge that leads to optimizing human abilities and their limitations with regard to the design of systems, organizations, jobs, machines, tools, and consumer products for safe, efficient, and comfortable human use.
HFES serves its members, other academicians and practitioners, and the public by promoting excellence in scholarship and teaching, disseminating the latest research, and creating forums for dialogue that engage human factors/ergonomics professionals across the globe.  We are committed to exploring diverse perspectives through open, engaging dialogue that encourages community building, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and collaboration.  
HFES welcomes the support of people like you who are committed to helping create increased knowledge and application of all human factors and ergonomics principles to move our vital work forward.  Please consider supporting HFES with a tax-deductible gift (see your tax advisor for guidance).
