Dr. Hasan Ayaz Is Field Chief Editor of the International Journal Frontiers in Neuroergonomics

September 24, 2020

Hasan AyazNeuroergonomics is a diverse, interdisciplinary, and rapidly expanding field of research and development that focuses on theoretical and applied studies of brain and human behavior at work.  

Drs. Hasan Ayaz, associate professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, Drexel University; Frederic Dehais, professor at l'Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE)-SUPAERO, Université Fédérale de Toulouse; and Waldemar Karwowski, professor and chair of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, University of Central Florida, will serve as the founding Field Chief Editors of the new international journal, Frontiers in Neuroergonomics, dedicated to the emerging field of neuroergonomics research. This new international journal will provide a global forum for the dissemination of ideas and research output that advance interdisciplinary fields, including neuroscience, neuroengineering, psychology, cognitive sciences, human factors and ergonomics, by presenting and discussing novel approaches, design tools, methodologies, techniques, and solutions for understanding the human brain at work and in everyday life.

The journal editorial board represents multi-disciplinary and leading world-renown experts with over 300 scientists and scholars and the journal has 7 specialty sections: Cognitive Neuroergonomics, Social Neuroergonomics, Clinical Neuroergonomics, Physical Neuroergonomics, Consumer Neuroergonomics, Augmented and Synthetic Neuroergonomics, and Neurotechnology and Systems Neuroergonomics.

It was particularly at the Inaugural International Neuroergonomics Conference in 2016 in Paris, France, that the community's dire need for a dedicated journal was voiced. Later, at the Second Neuroergonomics Conference in 2018 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, USA, that need was more emphasized and underlined. And, finally, after the 2019 Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics Conference in Washington DC, the process to launch the journal was finally initiated.

In the first editorial, the field chief editors discussed the field’s grand challenges and opportunities: Brain at Work and in Everyday Life as the Next Frontier: Grand Field Challenges for Neuroergonomics.
