8th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2017), 17-21 July 2017, Los Angeles, USA

Presentation of Train4OrthoMIS on 8th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2017), 17-21 July 2017, Los Angeles, USA.  The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied areas of human factors and ergonomics. This is accomplished through the following six modes of communication: keynote presentation, parallel sessions, demonstration and poster sessions, tutorials, exhibitions, and meetings of special interest groups.

The number of participant was more than 2.000.

In the Fig. 1 there is presented the several photos from the conference space.

All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by three independent referees from the international program boards. Papers in the theoretical category should deal with models, concepts, and structures; papers in the generic category should present research results of broad applicability; and papers in the applied category should show how the demands of particular application areas shape the way generic research is translated into practical innovation.

During the Conference the paper titled: “Train4OrthoMIS online course as a manner of improving ergonomics in orthopedic surgery” by Joanna Bartnicka, Alicia Piedrabuena, Raquel Portilla, Juan Moyano, José Blas Pagador, Peter Augat, Dariusz Michalak Jarosław Tokarczyk and Francisco Miguel Sánchez Marga, was presented (Fig. 2).
