The three main things we would like to highlight are:
(1) ISE regrets to record the passing of Professor Dr. Rabindra Nath Sen, mentor to many who are at
the forefront of ergonomics throughout the length and breadth of this country, founder of the Indian Society of Ergonomics, and initiator of ergonomics research and teaching institutions which form the bulk of the history of ergonomics in India.

(2) The requirement of a Code of Ethics for our members has become an issue of current importance, with many ergonomics associations adopting and publishing such a Code of Ethics for their members. Similarly, the need for a guidance document on ethical requirements for conducting research on human subjects was raised during the HWWE2015 conference in Mumbai. While many institutions have well developed ethical approval systems, there are some ergonomics researchers who are in need of guidance in this regard. We have now published a Code of Ethics for our members, and a guideline on ethics for research using human subjects. These are available on the home page of our website (http://ise.org.in/).

(3) We have started an online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal, International Journal of Humanizing Work and Work Environment (IJHWWE) for scientists, academicians, and research scholars to publish high-quality papers in the field of ergonomics, human factors, work physiology, usability, human-centred design, and related fields. Authors are invited to submit their research papers, review papers, case reports, and short communications. Details are available on the home page of our website (http://ise.org.in/).

(4) Our annual meeting HWWE'2017 in Aligarh University will be held in December 2017 (http://www.hwwe2017.com).
