The Human Side of Service Engeneering (HSSE) Conference is organised within the framework of the International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE)  as an Affiliated Conference.

The 4th International Conference on the Human Side of Service Engineering will take place at the Walt Disney World® Swan and Dolphin Hotel near  Orlando, Florida, USA from 27 – 31 July 2016.

If there is any one element to the engineering of service systems that is unique, it is the extent to which the suitability of the system for human use, human service, and excellent human experience has been and must always be considered.

HSSE explores the wide range of ways in which Human Factors Engineering, Ergonomics, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Usability Testing, Attitude and Opinion Assessment, Servicescape Designs and Evaluations, Cognitive Engineering, Psychometrics, Training for Service Delivery, Co-Production, Service Levels and Cost Effectiveness, Call Center Engineering, Customer Support Engineering, and many other possible areas relate to and impact the Engineering and Management of Service organizations.

In 2016, sessions relating to Health Care organizations, Aviation, Hospitality, Entertainment, Banking and Finance, and Government at all levels, along with many other fields will be included.

  • Adoption of Health Information Technology (HIT)
  • Aging Society: The Impact of Age on Traditional Service System Constructs
  • Anthropology in Service Science
  • Applying service design techniques to Health Care
  • Co-creating Value
