Doctoral Consortium

You are here: Home » Doctoral Consortium

If you are a postgraduate research student studying and working in areas related to ergonomics and human factors, you can use the Doctoral Consortium to meet each other and learn about each others’ research interests and activities. It is a constructive and supportive forum for discussion of research ideas and opportunities, and strengthens the community of researchers in ergonomics and human factors.

In 2016 the Doctoral Consortium will be held on Tuesday 19th April as part of the CIEHF’s Ergonomics & Human Factors conference, EHF2016, in Daventry. The day will consist of short student presentations, small group workshops, networking and will be facilitated by members of the Doctoral Consortium Programme Committee. You will also be able to attend Tuesday’s two key lectures as part of the main conference.

Submit an abstract

If you are a PhD student, you are invited to submit a short, 3000 character abstract, providing a brief summary of your research and the topic about which you would like to talk at the Consortium. The deadline to submit your abstract is 11th March 2016.
