Exponent Scientist to Give Keynote Address at the HFES Regional Conference


January 14, 2011

Dr. Robert Rauschenberger, from the Human Factors practice at Exponent’s Los Angeles office, has been invited to give a keynote address at this year’s Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Regional Conference, organized by the California State University Long Beach (CSULB) Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Student Chapter.

Each year, the Chapter invites three keynote speakers who are active in the field of human factors and ergonomics to come and give a 45-minute presentation about a human factors and ergonomics topic of their choice. The regional conference attracts students and faculty from CSULB and other surrounding universities, as well as local human factors professionals. The conference will take place on February 26, 2011.

Dr. Rauschenberger will be presenting a cross-section of research, examining the influence of meaning and familiarity on visual search performance, the ability of certain types of events to capture attention involuntarily, and users’ search for iPhone icons. Dr. Rauschenberger has just returned from giving a related invited talk at Arizona State University’s polytechnical campus, in early January.
