CybErg 2005 is the leading online conference on ergonomics and human factors. Online conferences are considerably less expensive to organize – and they pass on these savings to you (so please attend next time).
Although both CybErg 2002 & 2005 have ended, those conference organizers have graciously made CybErg papers and forums open to all.
The CybErg 2005 conference emphasized the understanding and designing for diversity, hence the conference title "Meeting diversity in cyber/online ergonomics".
Presentations focused on these themes:
- Physical Ergonomics includes repetitive strain injuries, work-rest schedules, anthropometry, work-related musculoskeletal disorders, workplace layout, and manual materials handling.
- Cognitive Ergonomics includes human error, mental workload, naturalistic decision making, situation awareness, augmented cognition, and adaptive interfaces.
- Human Computer Interaction includes computer-mediated communication, augmented reality, ubiquitous computing, online communities, cross-cultural interfaces, and interface accessibility.
- Health and Safety includes occupational health and hygiene, shift work, vibration, and epidemiological studies.
- Ergonomics methods includes ethnography, participatory design, organizational design, low-cost interventions, and usability testing.
- Community Ergonomics Development includes diverse user communities, community informatics, mobile communities, macro-ergonomics, and communication and education.
