Special Issue Call for Papers: Human Factors and Ergonomics in Cities, Urban Design and Development

This special issue will highlight how the scientific legacy of the HFE discipline has and can continue to contribute to exploring the complex design and development of our cities and towns.

The application of HFE approaches to the challenges faced by an increasingly urbanized world are gaining interest within and beyond the HFE discipline (e.g. Stevens et al. 2018; Thatcher et al. 2019). The special issue recognizes and acknowledges the significant parallels between HFE and urban development. Fundamentally both are interested in the interfaces between humans and their environment; and scientifically neither discipline resides exclusively in engineering, nor are they the pure domain of social scientists. 

The aim of this special issue is to provide researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to present research and papers focused specifically on HFE approaches in a city, urban design and development context and discuss current and future issues. Click here to read the full announcement.
