Scope

The Neuroergonomics Conference 2024 calls for submissions that cover new approaches in neuroscientific theories and methods that can inform and improve human factors and ergonomics across diverse work domains.

Neuroergonomics investigates how the human brain supports operator performance, safety, and satisfaction in natural environments and everyday settings. This discipline has been summarized as the “investigations of the neural bases of mental functions and physical performance in relation to technology, work, leisure, transportation, health care and other settings in the real world” (Parasuraman, 2003). Neuroergonomics integrates advancements of neuroscience and neuroengineering, to provide the flexibility to assess body and brain function in naturalistic work settings, thus bringing neuroscience into everyday life. There, the Neuroergonomics Conference 2024 (NEC’24) welcome submissions about works related (but not limited to) to one or several of the following topics, in relation to Neuroergonomics:

• Artificial Intelligence and data science
• Cognitive enhancement and augmented cognition
• Neuroethics and brain rights
• Social interaction & social cognition
• Affect and Cognition: perception, attention, workload, fatigue, decision-making, memory, emotions, problem-solving, creativity, etc.
• Brain signal processing
• Brain stimulation (tES/tDCS/tACS/rTMS/FUS, etc.)
• Brain-Computer Interfaces & Neurofeedback
• Clinical applications & brain health
• EEG/MEG
• fNIRS/fMRI
• Hardware & sensors design and evaluation
• Human-Machine Teaming & Neuroadaptive Technologies
• Invasive recordings (ECoG, micro-electrode arrays, etc.)
• Motor control, imagery & physical performance
• Physiological signals (eye tracking, ECG, Galvanic skin response, etc)
• Skill acquisition and training assessment
• Virtual Reality and simulators

We welcome reports of both ongoing and completed research that applies neuroscience methods and theories to improving human performance, safety, and satisfaction across different work domains.

We also welcome reports that are purely neuroscience methods and/or theories with the outlook of being applicable to human factors and ergonomics, and research in human factors and ergonomics that present meaningful opportunities for application of neuroscience methods and/or theories.

We welcome submissions that report research at all different stages of a project’s completion. Acceptance will be based on the topical relevance and scientific quality of the written submission, not on the maturity of the work.

Submission guidelines

  • Preference for oral or poster presentation may be specified.
  • The extended abstract word limit is 1000 words.
  • Up to 2 figures or 2 tables (or 1 figure and 1 table) can be added. They do not count towards the word limit.
  • References do not count towards the word limit.
  • The extended abstract should contain the following sections: synopsis, background, methods, results, discussion, disclosures (if any), and references
  • Please submit your extended abstract as a word (.doc, .docx) or PDF (.pdf) document there: SUBMIT HERE
  • You can use the following extended abstracts templates: Word template (.docx)PDF template (.pdf)
  • Submission deadline: April 1st, 2024 (23:59/11:59pm, Pacific Time)

Review process

All accepted submissions will be published as open-access conference proceedings in Frontiers in Neuroergonomics. Acceptance will based on a single-blind review process. All submitted extended abstracts will be peer-reviewed by independent referees selected from our scientific committee and other members of the Neuroergonomics community.

Pre-conference Workshops and Tutorials – call for participation

The two half-days before (July 8, 2024, afternoon, and July 9, 2024 morning) the 2024 NeuroErgonomics Conference,  we will offer world-class intensive courses and hands-on workshops. 

A workshop is a meeting to address a topic or method of common interest to the attendees of NEC24. A tutorial, on the other hand, instructs participants who are unfamiliar with a certain topic and/or technologies or software (e.g., mobile neuroimaging; task and requirement analysis, analysis software) in a step-wise and hands-on manner.

Note that the workshop submissions for this conference edition are now closed.

Submission Content

Submissions should consist of two documents (NEC workshop/tutorial proposal, see the word template, and short organizers/presenters biographies). Proposals must contain the following:

  • Abstract (max. 150 words): Please explain the workshop’s or tutorial’s topic briefly (max. 150 words). Make sure that participants can make an educated decision about why to join your workshop and what the workshop’s overall goal is.
  • Keywords (max. 5): To make it easy to categorize your workshop or tutorial, please use up to 5 keywords.
  • Prerequisites: Please mention any topics/techniques that participants need to know prior to your event.
  • Tentative schedule: Please provide a 2-4 hours schedule for your event.
  • Timing: Please indicate whether you would prefer your workshop/tutorial to take place on July 8 afternoon, July 9 morning or both (if you need a full day tutorial/workshop)
  • Maximum (participant) intake: Please state the maximum number of participants.
