March – September 2015
System Concepts and URS are hosting a meet up on behalf of the London & South East Regional Group of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors. We would be delighted if you would join us.
Come and share in an ergonomists’ seven minutes Hall Of Fame. Each speaker will have seven minutes, no more and no less, to share with you their experiences in the field.
Emerging trends in ergonomics, Tanya Heasman
Tanya has over 25 years’ experience in ergonomics and will be presenting on some of the ergonomics issues she has encountered during her career. Insights will include ergonomics in the financial, manufacturing and health-care services industries. Tanya will lead a discussion of emerging trends and provide some interesting case studies from her experience over the last few years.
Ergonomics training in industry and putting it in to practise, Vicky King
Implementing ergonomics in the context of manufacturing has a number of benefits from reduced injuries and increased operator satisfaction, to increased productivity. Vicky will summarise our successful style of working with organisations to implement ergonomics into processes in production and manufacturing, giving examples of both reactive and proactive approaches.
Applying UX methodology to ergonomics, Caroline Owen
Research methods like card sorting, storyboarding and persona creation are commonplace in the field of user experience and human-computer interaction. However, many of these methods may lend themselves to measuring ergonomics engagement and health and safety culture in the workplace. Caroline will outline the ways in which some of these approaches can be used to create and innovate in human factors.
Making technology accessible, Helen Cheetham
Mobile devices can greatly enhance the quality of life and level of independence for people who have an impairment or disability. However, many mobile offerings are still difficult or impossible to use for people who have an impairment or who are reliant on assistive technology. Helen hopes to address this by giving you her seven top tips for providing an accessible mobile website or app.
Following the presentations we will have an open forum for discussions, as well as a chance to network and enjoy some refreshments. To reserve a place, please register online.

The International Conference on ICT for Ageing Well and e-Health aims to be a meeting point for those that study and apply information and communication technologies for improving the quality of life of the elderly and for helping people stay healthy, independent and active at work or in their community along their whole life. ICT4AgeingWell facilitates the exchange of information and dissemination of best practices, innovation and technical improvements in the fields of age-related health care, education, social coordination and ambient assisted living. From e-Health to intelligent systems, and ICT devices, this will be a point of interest for all those that work in research and development and in companies involved in promoting the well-being of aged people, by providing room for industrial presentations, demos and project descriptions.
The purpose of the 4th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems (SMARTGREENS) is to bring together researchers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of Smart Grids, Green Information and Communication Technologies, Sustainability, Energy Aware Systems and Technologies.
The purpose of the 1st International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems (VEHITS) is to bring together engineers, researchers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems.
This conference focuses on innovative applications, tools and platforms in all technology areas such as signal processing, wireless communications, informatics and electronics, related to different kinds of vehicles, including cars, off-road vehicles, trains, ships, underwater vehicles, or flying machines, and the intelligent transportation systems that connect and manage large numbers of vehicles, not only in the context of smart cities but in many other application domains.
CSEDU 2015, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, institutional policies on computer supported education including open and distance education, using computers. In particular, the Web is currently a preferred medium for distance learning and the learning practice in this context is usually referred to as e-learning. CSEDU 2014 is expected to give an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the pedagogical potential of new learning and educational technologies in the academic and corporate world.
ICETE 2015 is a joint conference aimed at bringing together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on information and communication technologies, including data communication networking, e-business, optical communication systems, security and cryptography, signal processing and multimedia applications, and wireless networks and information systems. These are the main knowledge areas that define the six component conferences, namely: DCNET, ICE-B, OPTICS, SECRYPT, SIGMAP, and WINSYS, which together form the ICETE joint conference.
