New technologies developed solved many problems but created new ones. In this information-driven and consumption-driven world, the field of ergonomics is pushed to contribute to issues such as sustainability, data revolution, and health promotion among others. These issues can effectively be addressed through effective partnerships of ergonomists with people from other disciplines. Innovative technologies flourish because of the unique contribution of each team member at each stage of the problem solving process.
The Joint Congress of the Asian Council of Ergonomics and Design and the Southeast Asian Network of Ergonomics Societies brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to talk discuss relevant work in the area of human factors and ergonomics.
