German Summer School for Human Factors

Date(s) - 28/09/2020 - 30/09/2020

++ Update on Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) ++
Due to COVID-19, we have decided to hold the 2nd Summer School for Human Factors virtually and postpone the Summer School for Human Factors from July to September. The new date will be September 28th to 30th, 2020. The Summer School will still take place in Dortmund at the Leibniz-Research Center for working environments and human factors. The new extended deadline for Submissions is the 21st of August 2020. We are monitoring the situation closely and are in contact with local health authorities. Be assured that we will not endanger the safety of the participants or the quality of the meeting. We will update all registered attendees on any changes if they occur. In the meanwhile, stay healthy.

The German Summer School for Human Factors is the successor of the Berlin Summer School of Human Factors which was initiated and organized in the years 2015-2018 by the Department of Psychology and Ergonomics, TU Berlin. It is an annual postgraduate event that is supported by the newly founded Section of Engineering Psychology of the German Psychological Society.

The Summer School is intended to be an interactive platform that promotes the transfer and communication of interdisciplinary skills, relevant to Human Factors research. Successful postgraduate applicants (MSc and PhD candidates) are presented with the opportunity to present their research interests and current projects for critical discussion. Prominent researchers are invited to teach advanced methods and communicate state-of-the-art research from their laboratories.

The 2nd German Summer School for Human Factors 2020 will take place from September 28th to 30th, 2020.
