The 9th ErgoX Symposium will be held immediately before the 67th Annual Meeting of HFES in Washington, DC at the Washington Hilton Hotel. The symposium will take place Monday, Oct. 23, 2023. ErgoX will address the demand for safe and effective technology development found through multi-disciplinary and cross-market collaboration of cognitive and physical research and their resulting application to end-user technology adoption.
We are thrilled to have as our keynote presenter John Howard, MD, MPH, JD, LLM, MBA. Dr. Howard serves as the Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the Administrator of the World Trade Center Health Program in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

First held in 2015 and over time formalizing into a user-centered design meeting in 2018, the primary goal of the HFES ErgoX Symposium is to improve safe and effective technology user adoption. ErgoX showcases the latest in technology evolution, research, and application and their intersection with human-system interaction and integration.
