The participation of Faentia Consulting in the International Ergonomics Association Congress 2018, held this year in Florence (Italy) from 26 to 30 August, has proven to be a highly positive experience.
There were almost 2000 speakers at the Congress, 1762 papers, 491 side events, such as workshops and special sessions, and 860 conferences dedicated to the state of the art in all the most relevant areas of world ergonomics, with 68 countries represented. These numbers give an indication of the scope of this incredible event.
Faentia Consulting was proud to exhibit its entirely self-financed research project, entitled Comparative Analysis of Subjective Workload in Laparoscopy and Open Surgery using NASA-TLX, in the Sala Raffaello of the Palazzo dei Congressi in Florence.
There was a substantial presence of universities and research centres and we were highly satisfied both with the numbers of visitors – composed entirely of experts in the sector – and the opportunity to meet the fellow ergonomists who gave speeches.
Special mention should be made of the quality of the event’s organisation: the IEA Association showed great professionalism and all aspects of the organisation were studied in detail. For this reason, we consider our experience of this IEA Congress 2018 a genuine success in every aspect!
