Human Factors Prize LogoThe Human Factors and Ergonomics Society welcomes your submission for the 2014 Human Factors Prize for Excellence in Human Factors/Ergonomics Research. The Prize confers a $10,000 cash award and publication of the winning paper in the Society¹s flagship journal, Human Factors. The winner will also present the paper in a special award ceremony at the HFES 2014 Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Suitable sample topics include:

  • research on human trust in automation and how trust affects interactions
  • how team interactions are affected by automation
  • models of effective human-automation interaction/autonomy

Manuscripts should be submitted between April 1 and June 2, 2014. Membership in HFES is not required. Visit for additional details about the topic, including a list of published papers on related topics; eligibility; evaluation criteria; and deadlines.
