19th Triennial Congress of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA)

The 2015 IEA conference was held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Melbourne, Australia. The conference started off with a warm and cozy welcome reception on a wintery Sunday, Aug 9, 2015. The conference sessions kicked off on Monday, Aug 10 and ended on Friday, Aug 14, 2015. There were 3 Anthropometry sessions during the conference along with an anthropometry workshop geared towards measurement, application, and analysis. In addition to these meetings, there was an anthropometric resource for Australia SIG and the IEA Technical committee meeting for Anthropometry. Fourteen papers were presented during the anthropometry sessions and overall, participation of presenters ranged from USA, Germany, China, Australia, Netherlands, France, and India. Presentations ranged from 3D and linear anthropometry, equipment anthropometry, virtual body models, and tools and techniques for testing PPE. During the anthropometry workshop organized by the Australian Military anthropometry specialists, panel discussions were held on topics ranging from measurement techniques, analysis approaches, and interpretation issues. During the Anthropometry technical committee meeting, new co-chairs were selected (Daisy Veitch and Sudhakar Rajulu) for the IEA 2018 to be held in Florence, Italy (Aug 25 thru Sept 1).
