Abstracts / Call for papers

We would at this time like to invite you to participate in the Nordic Ergonomics Society’s 50th annual conference that is to take place in Reykjavik, Iceland in June 2018. The theme of the conference is Entrepreneurship in Ergonomics and Human Factors – but will also be a big birthday party to celebrate the 50 years of NES Confereces.

Entrepreneurship is important for development and new opportunities. We will have the chance to meet young and old entrepreneurs and enjoy each other’s company, make new connections and have a nice time together in a beautiful and inspiring environment.

The setting of the conference is in Reykjavik, Iceland, a dream destination for anyone interested in nature. For conference guests, there will be ample opportunity to enjoy not only the cute little town we like to call city, but the amazing landscapes of the midnight sun.

And how can I be a part of this, I hear you ask?
