2020-09-24 Human Factors Symposium Postponed

Due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-situation, the Organizing Committee has responsibly decided to postpone the event by one year. The Human Factors Symposium will now take place from 7–10 March 2022. The event location stays the same.


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 a highly interactive 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 take part in this new event. Whether your interest is operational flight, aerospace medicine, special operations, SAR, UPT or if you are a flight physician, instructor, ATO, airline, aviation authority or aircraft manufacturer: The Human Factors Symposium is your chance to get up to date with important Human Factor developments.

To promote interaction between participants, workshops and networking opportunities are blended with traditional presentations. The interactive 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!
