What is the IEA Congress?

For people engaged in Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE), the IEA Triennial Congress is important for many reasons. Most of all, the Congress offers an overview of current HFE research and practice. It gives researchers and practitioners an opportunity to publicly present achievements which they have made in the past three years. It gives people an opportunity to exchange up-to-date HFE knowledge. It gives an opportunity for young students and researchers to interact with world-class researchers and practitioners. It gives IEA an opportunity to promote good HFE research and practice on a global scale and provide services to its member societies and their members. It gives IEA an opportunity to present new developments in HFE that domain specialists may not be aware of, and it provides networking opportunities which are valued by the participants. The congress attracts interested people from science, practice, industry, government and related NGOs from around the world.

IEA2024 – the next IEA Congress

The next IEA Congress will be held August 25th -29th, 2024 on Jeju Island, in Korea.  The theme of the 22nd Triennial Congress of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA2024) is Better Life Ergonomics for Future Humans. The 2024 Congress will explore how emerging technologies can enhance the quality of human life, both at work and during leisure activities. Additionally, significant attention will be given to the application of human factors and ergonomics (HFE) in improving technologies. The program will feature theme-related sessions, but the Congress will also encompass a wide range of traditional and emerging HFE topics and their practical applications.

Preparations are advancing well and the congress promises to keep up the high standard that the previous IEA Congresses have set. Reserve the dates.
