1st Southeast Asian Network of Ergonomic Societies Conference

The Southeast Asian Network of Ergonomics Societies (SEANES) and the Philippine Ergonomics Society (PHILERGO) welcomes you to the 1st SEANES conference which will be held in Cebu, Philippines from December 14-17, 2010. This is the first time that ergonomists and human factors specialists will congregate in this part of the world and the organizers fervently hope that this will spur greater interest in the area of human factors in the academe and industry.

The theme of the conference is “Linking ergonomics and organizational strategy“. Such a theme was chosen in order to promote the value of ergonomics in the organizational context.
