The People & Systems symposium provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of papers on recent developments and future trends in Human Factors Engineering. The event will offer practical engineering solutions for recognised problems in the field. The technical scope will cover:
· Solutions to common Human Factors problems
· Commercial and technical costs and benefits of Human Factors Integration
· Presentations of early or mature research results and case studies

A number of leading international experts in human systems development will deliver invited presentations and Keynotes Speakers confirmed to date include:
· Field Marshall The Lord Vincent, Cranfield University
· Mike Markin – MoD Science & Technology
· Professor Erik Hollnagel, Linköping University
· Dr Bruce Callander, MoD Research Acquisition Organisation
· Stuart Arnold, QuinetiQ
· Professor Nigel Shadbolt, Southampton University

The symposium will be of practical value to systems engineers and managers from industry, defence and academia involved in the design, development and procurement of complex systems used by people. It is also intended that the symposium will be of interest and highly relevant to both civilian and military operational and technical staff including people working in:
· Control rooms
· Land vehicles, trains, ships and aircraft
· Command centres: police, military, disaster management
