Episode 17

Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics Conference

...and now for another Human Factors Minute!

The International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE) offers keynotes, workshops, and networking opportunities with professionals that span from the application of human factors in disease control to the impact of neuroergonomics in cognitive engineering.

The AHFE conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied areas of human factors and ergonomics.

This is accomplished through keynote presentations,demonstration and poster sessions, tutorials, exhibitions, and meetings of special interest groups. AHFE Tutorials offer professionals an introductory, intermediate, and advanced level of training covering the entire spectrum of the conference.

Papers presented at the conference deal with the theoretical application of models, concepts, and structures and focus on bringing the community results of broad applicability

The goal of the conference is to share applied human factors knowledge for particular application areas and shape the way generic research is translated into practical innovation.

Profile picture for Nick Roome

Nick Roome

Nick is currently a Senior UX Researcher at Turvo in the Pacific Northwest, focused on developing innovative solutions and optimizing human performance for SaaS based supply chain logistics programs. Alongside colleague and friends, Blake Arnsdorff and Barry Kirby, Nick hosts and produces Human Factors Cast, a weekly podcast that investigates the sciences of human factors, psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry and how it affects our interaction with technology. Nick’s other areas of interest include, but are not limited to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, systems engineering, and artificially intelligent systems.

Nick Started Human Factors Cast in early 2016 as a side-project. He believed that the way Human Factors concepts were being communicated is broken and saw a way to fix it. After getting initial traction, Nick moved to work on the Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab and began assembling a multi-disciplinary team to test out new concepts in Human Factors communication.
