Sharing stories at EHF2024

The keynote speakers for our annual conference have been revealed, with topics spanning cyber security, new tech transport, healthcare and workplace behaviour. Ergonomics & Human Factors 2024 brings together professionals from around the world to share insight and ideas, expand their networks and learn more about the latest research and projects.

The Institute Lecture will be delivered by Amanda Widdowson, Head of Human Factors Capability at Thales UK. She’s an expert on cyber security and developed an award-winning approach to capturing human factors cyber risks.

Professor Natasha Merat, of the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, will give the Broadbent Lecture. Her main research focus is how road users interact with new technology, especially highly automated vehicles.

There will also be a keynote by Dr Neil Spenceley, Director of Paediatric Intensive Care and Anaesthetics at Glasgow Children’s Hospital. He’s passionate about workplace behaviour and resilience engineering.

All the paper submissions are now under review and we’ll be finalising the programme in January. Sectors such as healthcare, aviation, nuclear and rail will feature strongly, alongside topics such as AI, incident investigation and human performance.
