Announcement of The IEA/Kingfar HFE Research Award:

The IEA/Kingfar Award for Student Research in Human Factors and Ergonomics Issues in Industrially Developing Countries(hereafter abbreviated as The IEA/Kingfar HFE Research Award) is given annually to honor persons who have made high-quality human factors and ergonomics (HFE) research achievements that address HFE issues typical of industrially developing countries (IDCs). The purpose of the award is to honor a deserving student and allow them to focus their research on HFE issues typical of IDCs and thereby potentially improve the well-being of people in industrially developing countries. Up to eight award winners may be selected each year. Each winner will be given a prize of 1,000 USD. Applications are due September 30 for 2019, and May 31 for 2020 and after.

All areas of ergonomics are eligible for consideration. Examples of submitted proof of research achievements include high-quality journal or conference papers, high-impact HFE designs, or project reports. The following criteria will apply for nomination:
• The nominee is a registered PhD student/candidate. The nominee may also be a PhD who has been awarded the degree within the past year.
• The nominee is a member of an IEA federated/affiliated society, or a self-recommending individual whom the IEA federated/affiliated society agrees to nominate.
• The submitted research achievement should be made prior to graduation and should address HFE issues typical of IDCs.

Please combine the following evidentiary items into a single pdf file and send it to the Chair of Awards Standing Committee (at PastPres@iea.cc) and Vice President and Secretary General (VP_SG@iea.cc) by September 30, 2019. From 2020, the due date will be May 31 every year. The application must be submitted through an IEA federated/affiliated society.
