International Annual Meeting

The International Annual Meeting is the premier educational activity organized by the Society.  The annual meeting typically hosts between 1,500 and 2,000 attendees from education, government, and industry and features more than 600 technical presentations. The meeting continues to ensure the quality of the submissions through rigorous peer review, while ensuring the proceedings are archived and indexed for wide dissemination.  Additionally, content is tailored to meet attendee interests by following tracks organized by the society’s diverse Technical Groups.

A variety of special sessions, from workshops to keynotes to panels, provide the opportunity to learn from thought
leaders in the field of human factors and ergonomics and the industries we shape. The annual meeting is a friendly
gathering with a variety of networking opportunities including receptions and other social activities for students and early career professionals.  The annual meeting also features the Career Center - a one stop hub for your next career move.

The annual meeting continues to evolve to meet HFES member needs and interests.  Recently added features include an embedded Practitioner Day with a strong emphasis on sharing hands-on and applied project findings, mentorship activities, a Womens Affinity Group luncheon, poster sessions (including Posters with Fellows) and much more.  The HFES International Annual Meeting truly has something for everyone. 

The 65th International Annual Meeting will convene October 4 - 7, 2021 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Follow the link below for complete information:
