20th Annual Applied Ergonomics Conference

March 27 - 30, 2017 at the Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Orlando, FL, USA

Annual Applied Ergonomics Conference (AEC) 2016

The Applied Ergonomics Conference (AEC) is one of the largest and most impressive ergonomics conferences in North America. Presenters are practitioners sharing real-world experiences and practical solutions to common problems in industry. This conference provides comprehensive and broad-spectrum education for employees at all levels (managers to professionals to line-workers).

The Conference also provides:

  • Companies around the world with an avenue for recognition of expertise and achievements in ergonomics as well as cost-effective business practices/solutions.
  • An opportunity for professionals from a variety of specialties to discuss ergonomics issues with similar causes, effects or solutions (e.g. using manual handling equipment to transport cleaning equipment vs. auto parts vs. boxed customer products).
  • An opportunity to share ideas between non-similar organizations (e.g., moving items in distribution sites vs. transporting cleaning equipment in a hospital vs. transferring items in an assembly process).
  • A meeting venue for multi-site companies or professional groups to meet together while engaging in continuing education opportunities. (Have a mini-conference with your peers while onsite.)
  • A networking opportunity for professionals and line workers from similar organizations (e.g., automaker to automaker) that facilitates an informal exchange of ideas.
  • An avenue for general conversation/networking with subject matter experts (SMEs). Healthy competition and sharing of ideas within your organization when applying for the Ergo Cup competition.
  • A focused avenue for CEUs required for licensure or professional organization participation.
  • Informal Roundtable discussions where people with similar interests will meet with a facilitator to discuss particular topics of interest, sharing what each participant does or would like to do at his/her facility.
  • An opportunity for new speakers to gain confidence and comfort with presentation skills, especially graduate students.
  • An opportunity to nominate a practitioner or student for the Creativeness in Ergonomics (CE) Practitioner and Student of the Year Awards. A monetary award is being given in each category.
  • An avenue for students/job seekers to meet potential employers.

European ergonomists belonging to a Federated European Ergonomic Society enjoy a discounted fee.
