Presenting the proceedings of the Ergonomics Society's annual conference, the series embraces the wide range of topics covered by ergonomics. Individual papers provide insight into current practice, present new research findings, and form an invaluable reference source. The volumes provide a fast track for the publication of suitable papers from international contributors chosen on the basis of abstracts submitted to a selection panel.

"…clearly and excellently cross the wide spectrum of topics and interest that is ergonomics today. The depth and diversity of papers within some areas, such as understanding the science and prevention of slips and falls, or what is 'designing for inclusion', go well beyond a general conference and approach some of the more specialized topical conferences. …Contemporary Ergonomics is a worthy edition to the ergonomics reference library and to reference shelves in libraries and research centres."
