Our programme has now been finalised. Please click on the link below or on the 'Programme' tab to view the programme and speakers.



This years theme is on 'Service'. As Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) professionals, we demonstrate service every day when working to help our clients, users, and participants. In 2023, we celebrate those who have dedicated their careers to our profession and completed projects and initiatives to serve the needs of others.


Below are the registration and accommodation costs for this year’s conference. As this an ‘experience conference’ and our first multi-day conference in over 4 years, we believe that the costs represent the best ‘bang for buck’ option for our members and delegates. In keeping with the ‘service’ theme at this world-class facility, we have subsidised our registration fee. While the subsidy comes at a elevated cost to the society, we believe it is worth the investment to ensure our conference is unforgettable. It is an experience conference after all.
