Third International Scientific Conference



--------- Aims of the Conference

You are cordially invited to participate in the WWDU'92 conference in Berlin
on September 1-4, 1992. After Stockholm in 1986 and Montreal in 1989, Berlin
will provide a forum for users, designers and manufacturers as well as
scientists to present state-of-the-art knowledge on utilization of visual
display units.

Working With Display Units, a new style of human work which emerged just 20
years ago in offices has become a focus of interest, wherever people process

Research on WWDU and the formulation of design principles surrounding the
subject have both broadened and increased in depth as the use and capacity of
computers have extended even into areas formerly thought to be the exclusive
domain of the human brain. The positive response of all the disciplines
involved must be

- to support human abilities to process information by tools and techniques in
all areas of human industry, both for experts and for novices;
- to reduce health hazards by preventive research and measurements in all
areas of information technology;
- to endeavour to provide innovative solutions in workplace design and the
complex and flexible arrangement of individual workers in new organiza-
tional and management concepts.
