2018 AAvPA Symposium – 7-9 November 2018, Sydney, Australia

Date: 7 November 2018

The AAvPA executive committee are pleased to announce the details of the 13th International Symposium.

AAvPA is organising the 2018 conference with the theme ‘Maximising human performance for future systems’.

The symposium will be held on 7 – 9 November, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Coogee Beach, Sydney. Due to the success of the 2016 symposium, we will again be combining with the 2018 PACDEFF conference, so delegates attending have the opportunity for a varied exchange of information and advancement of knowledge and skills in fields of psychology and human factors, applicable across industries.

We are very excited to have confirmed our keynote speakers:
• Professor Nancy Leveson (MIT)
• Dr. Sarah Fletcher (Cranfield University)
• Professor Mark Griffin (University of WA)
• Alison McDonald (EBT Foundation)

The call for speakers is open from now until 1 May 2018. Papers can focus on the theme, or as usual, can present current theoretical and practical applications of psychology and human factors across the transport domains. Please email an overview of your topic to

Our program will be populated once the call for papers is finalised.

We look forward to welcoming you to Coogee in November! Dr Melanie Todd President, on behalf of AAvPA executive committee
