IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Applied Ergonomics Conference 2020 Has Been Postponed

March 31, 2020

After careful consideration regarding the continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) conference management team postponed the 2020 Applied Ergonomics Conference (AEC). The AEC was scheduled for March 16-19 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

IISE closely monitored the situation related to COVID-19 with the health and safety of attendees as the priority. This ultimately led to the decision to postpone the Conference. It was simply unavoidable as the event could not proceed as scheduled due to forces beyond anyone's control.

The IISE conference management team is working to consider all alternatives. It appears that a virtual event is likely, although other options are also being explored. In addition to participation in the virtual event, other valuable services will also be provided to registrants. Please be assured that IISE will continue to keep its AEC registrants informed.

The AEC staff and volunteers truly appreciate your support, patience and cooperation as we continue to work through this challenging situation. Look for updates on AEC 2020 at
