IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Applied Ergonomics Conference 2020 Has Been Postponed

March 24, 2020

After careful consideration regarding the continuing developments surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the virus a "pandemic" during a news conference in Geneva March 11, 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 the 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 going forward.  This includes the possibility of hosting a virtual event or securing alternative dates later in the year.  Please be assured that IISE will continue to keep its AEC registrants informed of details related to postponement and rescheduling. Your conference registration fee will be applied toward the rescheduled AEC conference.

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
