May – October 2015
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.

19th triennial IEA congress.
The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia (HFESA) and the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand (HFESNZ) are jointly hosting this congress around the central theme “Reaching Out.” It will feature plenaries, panel discussions, concurrent workshops, and free communication sessions on burning local and international issues that will shape the future of ergonomics in this region and the rest of the world. The program will include a wide-range of topics from the traditional to various special interest streams to capture the attention of anyone with an interest or speciality in ergonomics and/or human factors.
IEA 2015 is an excellent opportunity for you to hear about the latest research, exciting new developments and practice in our field from a line-up of globally recognised speakers and experts. Additionally, you will also have a chance to meet new acquaintances and strengthen existing relationships with colleagues from our industry.
The aim of this conference is to bring together scientists, consultants, regulators, operators, infrastructure managers, manufacturers and suppliers from across the world to share rail human factors knowledge.
ARSC2015 is a joint initiative of the Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS), Austroads, and the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q). It is the result of a successful merger of Australasia’s two leading road safety conferences: the Australasian College of Road Safety Conference, and the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference (RSRPE).
With a theme of “Taking Action Together”, the Conference will be a multi-disciplinary event featuring representatives from all facets of road and transport safety including research, teaching, practice and policy. Presenting the latest research, programs and developments in the field, ARSC2015 will feature a strong program of national and international keynote speakers, discussion groups , oral and poster presentations, workshops and symposia.
The conference is expected to attract over 400 delegates including professionals, researchers, practitioners, community leaders, policy-makers and students working in the very wide range of portfolios and industries who impact on improving road safety outcomes. This includes: infrastructure construction and maintenance; behavioural science; education and training; emergency services; engineering and new technology; health and rehabilitation; police, justice and law enforcement; local, state and federal governments; communications; traffic management; and vehicle safety industries. The conference will cover the safety issues identified in the five pillars of action set out by the United Nations Decade of Action on Road Safety. They are Road Safety Management, Infrastructure, Safe Vehicles, User Behaviour, and Post Crash Care.
The call for abstracts has now opened and will close on 30 April 2015. See http://australasianroadsafetyconference.com.au/abstracts/ for details.
Understanding Small Enterprises (USE2015) Conference: A Healthy Working Life in a Healthy Business
Small businesses form the backbone of most economies and are attracting increased interest from academics, practitioners, consultants, social partners, government officials, and policy makers. In recent years it has become more and more clear that SMEs are a different breed from large companies, which are the normal subject of business and entrepreneurial research: an SME is not a small big firm.
Demographics dictate that able employees will be at a premium in the future global economy and that keeping them fit and healthy will be a prerequisite for sustained business success. This holds even more true for small companies as they typically lag behind large companies as attractors of talented employees. This leads to the main conference theme: “a healthy working life in a healthy business”.
One of the characteristics of a small business is its interconnectedness with its environment: customers, suppliers, partners, employees, and the communities in which it resides. A small business is more dependent on others in the network in which it operates than a big firm which might be more inclined to dictate its environment. The networked nature of small businesses gives rise to the subtheme of USE2015: Globalisation of SMEs and Corporate Social Responsibility.
