Since its inception several decades ago, ergonomics has grown and expanded to become a human-centered multidisciplinary field in which researchers and practitioners from various backgrounds, namely, basic science, health science, social science, and engineering, work together and share their knowledge and experience in both theories and applications to achieve better quality of life in both the workplace and living environment. Ergonomics in the Southeast Asia, however, is still not popular and its applications are far from being fully accepted by management in both industrial and service sectors.
The 5th International Conference of Southeast Asian Network of Ergonomics Societies (SEANES 2018) is intended to be a forum for researchers and practitioners from countries around the globe to meet and exchange ideas, experiences, research results, and problems related to ergonomics both theories and applications. With its theme “Multidisciplinary for human well-being and design” this conference hopes to find solutions on how to bridge the gaps between theories and applications and those between researchers and practitioners, which are essential for making ergonomics implementation and application successful. As such, ergonomics researchers and practitioners are invited to attend the SEANES 2018 which will be held in ฺBangkok, Thailand during December 12-14, 2018 and to exchange their experiences with their international colleagues who share similar interests.
SEANES 2018 will be hosted by Ergonomics Society of Thailand (EST) with collaborative from 4 human factors & ergonomics societies of Southeast Asian Countries and supporting of 17 Thai organizations (15 Universities and 2 Institutes)
