Human Factors and Ergonomics Madness

Are you going to the annual Human Factors and Ergonomics conference this fall?  If you are conference presenter or just browsing, make sure to stop by the Madness sessions.  The purpose is to get a fun 25-second preview of the talks happening that day.  It’s early in the morning but hopefully well worth it.

We’ll host a concurrent website and Twitter feed so that the audience can discuss the presentations.  The website will contain short summaries of each madness presentation as well as a live picture as it happens.

HFES is introducing fast-paced “Early Morning Madness” presentations this year at the 54th Annual Meeting in San Francisco. These sessions will offer exciting 25-second previews of the full talks to be given later that day. This may sound like an impossibly short amount of time in which to present your work, but it promises to be fun and informative. If you are presenting a paper at the meeting, we encourage you to participate in the Madness session that will take place the morning of your presentation. On Tuesday, September 28, the session will take place from 7:00 to 7:45 a.m., prior to the Opening Plenary Session. Wednesday through Friday, September 29–October 1, Madness sessions will take place from 7:15 to 8:00 a.m.

The sessions start early every morning of the conference (hence the “madness”) so get your coffee before you arrive!
