Call for Proposals—HFES 2021


We invite you to submit to the 65th Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. The call for papers for the Annual Meeting is open! Click here for the submission site.


Each year, the Annual Meeting provides a forum for more than 600 research and practice presentations across 26 Technical Groups, representing all aspects of human factors and ergonomics. Plan to present a lecture or poster of your latest work or ideas, organize a panel of experts on a timely subject, give a demo of cutting-edge technology, or share your expertise in a workshop. We invite you to submit your proposal by March 12, 2021.


This year’s Annual Meeting is scheduled October 4 - 8, 2021, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is home to the National Aquarium along with world class museums, shopping, and dining, while being conveniently located close to Washington, DC. While we are planning for an in-person event to help you reconnect with the human factors and ergonomics community, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation to consider the safety of attendees and members.


This year, we plan to expand on the successful networking activities introduced for the first virtual Annual Meeting last year. We are very excited to highlight the innovative work in our newest Technical Groups—Cybersecurity and Human-AI-Robot Teaming. We also plan to grow the embedded Practitioner Track, with a strong emphasis on sharing hands-on and applied project findings. Additionally, to reflect the challenges of conducting research with human participants over the past year, we especially encourage in-progress submissions. The pandemic provided new opportunities—new ways of conducting research remotely but also new chances to think about research that may not yet be completed. We want to hear about these ideas as we move forward. As in the past, all submissions will receive a multi-person peer review, and the proceedings will be archived and indexed for wide dissemination.


We look forward to seeing your submissions and welcoming you to the next Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society!
