    Call For Papers on Slips, Trips And Falls

    There will be an International Symposium on Slips, Trips And Falls at the
    Ergonomics Society Annual Conference 2005 which will be held at the De
    Havilland Campus, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK from April 5 to 7, 2005.

    The objective of this symposium is to provide a technical forum on slip,
    trip and fall accidents for researchers and practitioners around the world
    to present their latest findings and to exchange research ideas. The
    symposium will cover all aspects related to the problems from research to
    practical experience, such as falls from heights, falls among older people,
    biomechanics, slip resistance measurements, standardization, pedestrian fall
    prevention, flooring and stairway design and development, design of
    footwear, anti-skid devices, and housekeeping. Papers may address
    industrial safety as well as safety at home and during leisure-time. The
    organizers are particularly keen to bring together researchers and
    practitioners from different fall prevention backgrounds, e.g. gerontology,
    health care, occupational safety, to share perspectives and experience.

    If you are interested in presenting your papers at this symposium, please
    follow the guidelines for abstract submission listed at the conference
    website Please indicate in
    your submission that your abstract(s) is (are) for this symposium. The
    deadline for abstract submission is September 30, 2004. Each paper will be
    allocated five pages in the Congress proceedings, which will be published as
    the book 'Contemporary Ergonomics 2005', by CRC Press. The deadline for the
    full papers will be December 10, 2004. Please submit your abstract(s) to
    the Ergonomics Society directly and also a copy to the symposium organizers
