The last year has certainly had its ups and downs due in large part to the novel coronavirus disrupting all walks of life. The inability to collaborate and converse without the presence of screens has been grueling for everyone involved. The abrupt shift to working from home presented a new slew of challenges that weren’t always as relevant before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ensuring both safe and productive ergonomic standards in the workplace, whether in a cubicle or makeshift home office, have risen in priority over the last year.

And the conversation around top-notch safety protocols will continue long after the pandemic is under control.

National Ergonomics Conference and ErgoExpo is back and planning an exciting program for 2021. We’re eager to bring everyone together to share the tools and ideas that will move our community forward through the challenging times ahead.

Like all of you, we’re eager to get face-to-face with our friends and peers again — safely in our Vegas home at the Paris Hotel, November 2-5. So far, we have plans to do just that and will keep attendees notified of any changes.

The National Ergonomics Conference is proud to continue to offer thought-provoking ideas and tangible tools and strategies to help ergonomic and safety professionals improve productivity, product quality and profitability while reducing workplace injuries.

Attendees each year include professionals interested in building a safer and more productive workplace, including corporate executives & officers, safety managers, occupational health professionals and more.

We are looking for proposals from speakers interested in presenting at the 27th National Ergonomics Conference and ErgoExpo. We invite proposals of an educational nature. Proposals that include new research, case studies with proven results, advanced level knowledge and innovative subject matter are highly encouraged.

Additionally, sessions must include specific strategies for attendees.

We are seeking presentations and presenters who will encourage attendees to address the issues and trends across these categories, including:

  • Program management
  • Office ergonomics
  • Advances in ergonomics technologies
  • Industrial ergonomics & safety
  • Health care ergonomics, aging & wellness

Reviewers will evaluate all proposals based on overall quality, relevance to the industry, defined focus within the educational track structure, practical applications of material for attendees, timeliness of the topic and speakers’ qualifications.

Final deadline for submissions is May 1. Those selected to present will be notified in early June.
