1. CALL FOR EXTENDED ABSTRACTS

It is generally acknowledged that technologies today not only originate
from developed nations but also from developing nations. New knowledge
about the different requirements of various cultures, needs, and
application of new and old technologies in a variety of environs are being
identified; these local knowledge can then be applied for products and
services targeted for nations all over the world. All this will bring
about the betterment of society, in improving the usability of
technologies and personal experiences, quality of life and work.

It is within this context of discovery of new local knowledge and its
global application, that we would like to invite the global community to
contribute and participate in the 5th International Cyberspace Conference
on Ergonomics (CybErg'08).

However, one of the deterrents to greater participation from countries
with developing economies has been the high international travel costs. As
CybErg'08 is an online conference, it is easy to see how an international
conference based on the World Wide Web can drastically reduce
travel-related costs. In addition, with greater participation from the
under-represented communities, it is anticipated that issues normally not
discussed at major conferences would be covered.  In addition,
participation and response received from the industries and organizations
since the first CybErg in 1996 have been very encouraging.
Last but not least, given the conference is on-going for a month, there is
ample opportunity to discuss issues which may not normally get air-time
given the limited amount of period available to conduct a lengthy
discussion.  With "bulletin boards" available, participants will have an
opportunity to discuss with the authors and other attendees with similar
interests.
Thus, we would like to invite you to submit an extended abstract to
CybErg'08 (deadline 30 April 2008).  Please note that awards for best
paper and most active discussion groups, will be also be presented at this
conference.

2. CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR PANEL DISCUSSIONS

One-page proposals for Panel Discussions will also be held to complement
and enhance the CybErg programme. The purpose of the panel discussion is

3. CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR SPECIAL TRACKS
One-page proposals are also invited for special tracks comprising at least
three papers (of a particular topic of interest).  These proposals will be
reviewed by programme review committee. Full papers submitted to this
