    We invite you to attend our exciting workshop on how to improve and test designs...

    Where: HFES Conference in Seattle USA 

    When: Monday 28th October 2019. 

    Title: "Anthropometry Applied to Wearable Product Design" 

    We think it's going to be a great workshop! Presenters are Kathleen Robinette, Sandra Alemany, Karen Bredenkamp and Daisy Veitch. 

    Link: http://www.hfes2019.org/workshops.html

    About the workshop: Many technology advances have been made since the 2004 publication of the HFES 300 Committee’s "Guidelines for Using Anthropometric Data in Product Design".  For example, we now have 3D printing for rapid prototyping, inexpensive 3D scanning for fit visualization, and virtual or augmented reality for experiencing product concepts.  These advances have enabled the use of anthropometric methods in product development that were previously too time consuming or expensive.  This workshop will present up-to-date best practices and cover the product development process from the first statistical models to the final product using recent examples and success stories from the wearable product and apparel industries.   It will be presented in five parts corresponding to the design loop of the Systems Engineering (SE) Process: 1) introduction to anthropometry, cases, fit and SE, 2) statistics for anthropometry, identification of cases and prototype development, 3) human modeling, CAD and prototyping, 4) fit mapping with hands-on fit assessment, and 5) statistics for cost/benefit analysis and size selection.   Data analysis will be done during the workshop, and an Excel™ data file with 58 anthropometric and demographic variables on 2379 North American subjects will be provided to all attendees.  SPSS™ and Excel™ software will be used in the course and some SPSS code files will be provided in text form for students to use after the workshop.  Attendees will also receive an electronic copy of the HFES’ guidelines book.  Fit mapping of a glove will be done during the workshop and attendees will be provided with a copy of the fit data as well as the data collection forms used.   Participants will want to bring a laptop computer preferably with Microsoft Office™, particularly Excel™ for the best experience.  Experienced designers, engineers, and human factors professionals will get the most out of the workshop.

    Posted on behalf of Juli Charland:

    This is a yearly symposium that has been held around the world since 1999. During this event, participants will benefit from interacting with core researchers as well as “top gun” users related to DHM domain to help detect ergonomics problem early in product and workstation design.  We believe that not only the researchers are going to be pleased with the DHM2016 program that we have put together but also the PRESENT or FUTURE users who wish to discover different ways of getting added values from Virtual Ergonomics or diversify their own practice: 30% of the presentations will be allocated to Industrial Applications of DHM/Virtual Ergonomics.

    The University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Griffith University welcomed today’s announcement that Brisbane will host the International Open Repositories Conference 26-30 June 2017 <http://or2017.net/>  at the Hilton Brisbane.

    The annual Open Repositories Conference brings together users and developers of open digital repository platforms from higher education, government, galleries, libraries, archives and museums. The Conference provides an interactive forum for delegates from around the world to come together and explore the global challenges and opportunities facing libraries and the broader scholarly information landscape.

    “There has never been a more exciting time for Australia to host this Conference as the issues around scholarly information, such as publishing and open access, directly play into Australia’s National Innovation and Science Agenda. Australia’s researchers and scholars are producing phenomenal work yet most of this isn’t being realised as commercial success due to systemic barriers, such as how research data is stored and accessed”, said Linda O’Brien, Pro Vice Chancellor, Information Services at Griffith University in response to the news of the successful bid.

    Ms O’Brien continued. “This announcement confirms what we already know - Australian universities are amongst the most innovative around the world and that Brisbane is a world-class conference destination.”

    Open Repositories 2017 will attract around 400 delegates and bring an estimated $1 million to the Queensland economy.
