I recently received, and started reviewing, the Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 53rd Annual Meeting (2009).  As always, there’s a wide variety of research topics covered.  Some of the more interesting papers I’ve reviewed so far include:

  • Supporting Expertise Coordination in Multidisciplinary Project Teams
  • Team Cognition and External Representations: A Framework and Propositions for Supporting Collaborative Problem Solving


  • Considering Trends among Industrial Accidents: A Preliminary Meta Analysis of HFACS Causal Factors across Industries


  • Evaluating and Designing Education: A Collaborative Effort Between Educators and Ergonomists
  • Macroergonomics in Education: On Your Mark, Set, GO!

  • Healthcare Workers’ Perceptions of Information in the Electronic Health Record
  • Medical Informatics: What contributions can human factors make?
  • Improving the User Interface and Adoption of Online Personal Health Records
