The World Congress of Ergonomics brings ergonomists together from around the world every three years at a venue that enhances both the exchange of ideas and information and conviviality. The venue for the 16th World Congress on Ergonomics, 10-14 July 2006, is Maastricht, famous for its history and its summits. It dates from Roman times, and was the first Dutch city to be liberated by Allied Forces during World War II. Its most famous summit is the one that gave the European Union’s Maastricht Treaty.
Exploring the theme, "Meeting Diversity in Ergonomics," the program includes 30 keynote speakers and more than 1000 papers. Technical sessions, symposia, posters, master classes, discussion panels and interactive workshops in all areas of ergonomics or human factors round out the Congress.
Congress 2006 is being organized on behalf of the International Ergonomics Association by the Dutch Ergonomics Society, in collaboration with the Belgian and German Ergonomics Societies and the Federation of European Ergonomics Societies.
The organizers promise a great Congress party for the anticipated 1500 IEA2006 participants. And football enthusiasts won’t have to miss out on the FIFA World Cup Final. The opening reception will be followed by a large screen projection of the playoff.
