We have received numerous requests to extend the abstract submission deadline from people who are facing challenges from the economic lockdown due to COVID-19 and need some additional time. Given these difficult circumstances, we are extending the paper submission deadline to October 16.
We appreciate concerns about participating in IEA2021 due to lockdowns and related restrictions. We remain confident the in-person conference will be well attended, hugely relevant and impactful and we encourage everyone to submit their work to IEA2021. This remains the premier opportunity to share findings and ideas in the HFE/E discipline around the world. Our work is important - let's not let current uncertainties deter us from contributing and participating in the Congress. We are making adjustments to accommodate people who can't join for either financial or pandemic reasons.
We are excited to announce innovative presentation opportunities at IEA2021. Rather than “oral” and “poster” on this call, we use “Lecture” (15-minute slots) and “interactive ePoster” (digital pdf and physical 4'X6' poster at the Congress) emphasizing the virtual elements we are adding to traditional physical posters to enhance opportunities to connect. Lecture and ePoster presentation options contribute equally in terms of scientific quality and value.
We look forward to your submissions!

This will be the most significant Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF/E) Event of the Year. We invite participation from researchers and practitioners from around the world.
IEA2021 is an opportunity to hear from the world of HF/E specialists. To ensure a wide variety of voices will be heard, if program space limitations are a concern, each presenting author may be limited to ONE lecture presentation. There is no limit to the number of communications that an author may present by interactive ePoster or may co-author so long as other lectures are presented by a colleague.
