Recent Activities

The major achievement this year was that we successfully hosted the Asian Conference of Ergonomics & Design 2017. The objective was to invite as many societies and countries as possible. We set the registration fee as low as we could (200USD/4days with banquet), and especially made a lot of effort to look for potential HFE researchers, which are in non-federated IEA societies to encourage to attend the conference. As a result, we had 400 guests from 15 countries; among them140 guests were from outside Japan. Although we struggled with contacting such societies, we hopefully made contact with a delegate from Vietnam. According to her presentation, there is no ergonomics society there but there is an occupational health society. They need more communication with IEA but there is no key person to connect to ergonomics researchers in Vietnam. We need to include a strategy for communicating. Regarding the CPE part, we got some outcomes from the symposium on certification. Some societies will have a system of certification, some do not intend to do so. They want to have a limited scope of certification. Formal recognition is desired. ACED should send a clear message to IEA that there is a clear demand for certification in Asia. They may need to start with a low-quality system. We are asking ACED to develop a body that is interested in certification.
