2022-07-26 Date for the Human Factors Symposium 2023

The Human Factors Symposium 2023 will take place Monday, 26 June to Thursday, 29 June 2023 in Salzburg, Austria.

2022-03-21 Human Factors Symposium Postponed to 2023

Due to the uncertainties associated with the COVID situation, we have decided to postpone the Human Factors Symposium to 2023. Goal of the Symposium is to improve flight safety through better training. In the spirit of this goal, safety of all participants and the quality of the event are most important to us. The current situation makes it very difficult to meet our own high standards. Coming together to learn, discuss and share experience is best done in person and we are therefore looking forward to meeting you in Salzburg in 2023. We will update you on the new dates shortly.  


What could be the best way to advance the Human Factor in military and civil aviation? The Human Factor is all about interaction. We therefore created an event, where people with wide backgrounds and interests can come together to learn, discuss and share experience.

Experts, stakeholders, and other interested persons with a background in aerospace medicine, flight simulation and training are invited to participate. Whether your interest is operational flight, aerospace medicine, special operations, SAR, UPT or if you are a flight physician, instructor, aircrew, ATO, airline, aviation authority or aircraft manufacturer: The Human Factors Symposium is the chance for every person involved with aviation to get up to date with important Human Factor developments and beyond.

We designed the event to promote interaction between participants. Presentations are blended with plenty of networking opportunities. The new format and the beautiful city of Salzburg create the ideal environment for advancing Human Factor topics. Socialize, discuss problems and solutions with fellow specialists and use the symposium to create a lasting network for implementing great and sustainable ideas.

We are looking forward to welcome you!
