  1. The purpose of PIE is to promote and advance the understanding of psychophysiological methods and their application to ergonomic environments through the interchange of knowledge and methodology in the behavioral, biological and physical sciences, and engineering disciplines.
  2. To participate in and/or to organize conferences and symposia for researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to present current research in psychophysiology in ergonomics
  3. To advance the dissemination of research in psychophysiology in ergonomics by sponsoring special issues or sections of journals such as Ergonomics, Human Factors, and Biological Psychology


PIE maintains a membership directory and email list of over 200 members
