This webinar will be about the upcoming International Ergonomics Association Congress (IEA2021, Vancouver) with an emphasis on the global role of IEA in promoting Human Factors & Ergonomics (HFE). IEA2021 will be an opportunity to participate in a large Congress and meet the global leaders within the HFE community. This talk will highlight the important opportunity it presents for the ACE community to extend a network of collaborators and shape the direction of HFE in Canada.

The Congress theme, Human Factors and Ergonomics in a connected world/ Lergonomie 4.0, speaks to the role of emerging G5 technologies to human applications at work and at play in helping to improve human performance and well-being. Equally important is the application of HFE to the effective design of emerging technologies. While the technical program will feature theme-related sessions, Congress will cover the full breadth of traditional and emerging HFE topics and applications.
