INTERNATIONAL CONCERENCE ON ENVIRONMENTAL ERGONOMICS
                            2007
                  ICEE 2007: August 19-24, 2007
           Grand Hotel Bernardin, Piran, Slovenia (Europe)


Dear Colleagues,
                                                th
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 12            International Conference on
Environmental Ergonomics in Piran, Slovenia.

This year’s conference is being held under the patronage of Dr. Janez Potocnik,
European Commissioner for Science and Research.

The conference is divided into 6 Symposia, each comprising oral and poster
sessions on specific topics. We have been assisted in the organisation of the
Symposia by the coordinators of the Symposia, who together with the
Chairpersons of the oral and poster sessions will ensure that the sessions are
entertaining and learning experiences. The organisation of the sessions is
shown in the Table on pages 10-11. A time schedule of the sessions is provided
on pages 12-13.

Several initiatives of the ICEE Executive Committee have been introduced at
ICEE 2007. The two most important initiatives are providing stipends to cover
the registration fee of our youngest scholars (post-graduate students and
post-doctoral Fellows), and of our Emeritus members. These initiatives have
been extremely successful, primarily due to the generous donation from W.L.
GORE & ASSOCIATES. We are also pleased to announce the W.L. GORE &
ASSOCIATES prize for best student oral and poster presentations.

Another important feature of this year’s meeting is the close collaboration with
the European Journal of Applied Physiology, which will publish a special volume
dedicated to Environmental Ergonomics, highlighting select papers presented at
this year’s meeting.
                                               2

In addition to our standard conference topics, we introduced a new Symposium
on Milestones in Environmental Ergonomics, which celebrates the work or our
members and examines trends for our future work.

The Symposium on Aerospace and Diving Physiology was organised in
collaboration with the Slovene Aerospace Medical Association (SAsMA) and the
Slovene Diving Federation (SDF). The Annual Rusjan & Potocnik Lectures
normally given at annual SAsMA meetings will be presented at the ICEE
meeting.

In contrast to previous years, we have made an electronic version of the
Proceedings, which is downloadable from the meeting website, and will also be
available through our Society’s website. Printed proceedings may also be
ordered at the conference, and for one month after the conference.

We hope you have a memorable meeting!

We are extremely grateful to Mr. Mark Newton of W.L. Gore & Associates for
spearheading the initiative to cover the registration fee of all graduate students
and post-doctoral fellows actively participating at this meeting. With the
funding provided by:

                            W.L. GORE & ASSOCIATES

we have been able to support the attendance of 40 students and felows.

At this meeting we have also introduced a new initiative that of waiving the
registration fee of all retired ICEE Emeritus members. The funding for this
initiative has been provided by:

                                BIOMED d.o.o.

The dedication of the local organising committee has been outstanding. We are
especially grateful to Alan Kacin, Danny (Wolowske) Yogev, and Mojca Amon.

The organisers also acknowledge the support of their respective institutions in
the organisation of this meeting:

                Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia
                                     •
