HF&E group @ AHFE 2016, Orlando

aaa

The Human Factors and Ergonomics research group was represented at the Conference AHFE 2016 (www.ahfe2016.org). The event took place in Orlando, United States. The HFErg was represented by its coordinator, Pedro Arezes (picture below), Gabriela Ramos (researcher and former PhD student at the HFErg) and João Silva (current PhD student and in the picture below).

The conference was held during 5 days, from the 27-31 July, and was attended by a significant number of Portuguese researchers, students and professionals. The picture above shows some of the Portuguese attending the conference, including the members of the HFErg at UMinho, but also other colleagues from other research groups of UMinho (Madalena Araújo and Paula Ferreira), as well as from the University of Lisbon, Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra, and Polytechnic Institute of Cavado and Ave. Some former members of the group were also at the conference, namely Amarria Dila (Indonesia) and Alberto Fonseca (CATIM and former Human Engineering MSc. student at UMinho).

The HFErg members have published some works in the books resulting from the conference, including the edition of one of those books by Pedro Arezes, in his role as the chair of one of the affiliated conferences at AAHFE. The full book reference is:
