The Human Factors Prize was established in 2010 by Editor-in-Chief William S. Marras to recognize excellence in HF/E research through an annual competition in which authors are invited to submit papers on a specific topic for that year. The topic is selected by the editor in chief in consultation with a Board of Referees chaired by the immediate past Human Factors editor. The prize carries a $5,000 cash award and consideration of publication of the winning paper in the Society's flagship journal, Human Factors. The award is formally conferred at a special session at the HFES International Annual Meeting, where the recipient presents his or her work. Submissions will be accepted between May 15 and June 15, 2021.
We seek articles that describe human factors research pertaining to future of work, more specifically, how cognitive and/or physical work activities are impacted by new work environments and spaces, new work technologies (e.g., autonomous, robotic, remote sensing, and wearable technologies), and anticipated demographic changes, and by large-scale disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Applications in all job sectors are welcome. Submissions that address issues related to enabling broad and diverse workforce enlargement and improving accessibility for those physically or cognitively impaired are particularly encouraged.
