The DoD HFE TAG is looking for abstract submissions for their virtual 2021 annual meeting. The HFE TAG provides a mechanism for timely exchange of technical information in the development and application of human factors engineering by enhancing coordination among Government agencies involved in HFE technology research, development, and application.

The HFE TAG consists of several diverse focal areas (SubTAGs) pertaining to human and system performance including Personnel Selection & Classification, Human Performance Measurement, Test & Evaluation, and Training. Visit for more information on the meeting and available SubTAGs.

General topics of interest:

  • Methods/technologies applicable to quantitative assessment of individual differences to improve screening/prediction.
  • Performance-based standards for screening applicants to technical training and transition programs.
  • Definition of performance criteria and methodologies for assessing performance in training and operational settings.
  • Issues arising from policy considerations of manpower, equal opportunity, and needs of the services.
  • Prediction of performance in training and operation of complex systems.

Although the TAG is largely composed of technical representatives from federal entities (DoD, NASA, FAA, DHS), we welcome contributions from other government and private representatives. The HFE TAG encourages representatives from private industry and academia to submit, extending special invites to those accepted.
