Fifth International Cyberspace Conference on Ergonomics (CybErg'08)
Local Knowledge, Global Applications

We are pleased to inform you that the Fifth International Cyberspace
Conference on Ergonomics (CybErg'08) will be held between 15 September
and 15 October 2008. CybErg'08 is the fifth conference in its series,
and
covers issues on the all aspects of ergonomics, and highlights the
latest development and current technologies in those areas. The theme of
this upcoming CybErg'08 is "Local knowledge, Global Applications" aims
to
deliberate and discuss ergonomic issues such as those applied in
developing
economies in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

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
organisations
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 29 Feb 2008).  Please note that awards for best
paper and most active discussion groups, will be also be presented at
this
conference.

For more information, please visit http://www.cyberg2008.org. Should you
have any queries, please contact Ms. D'oria Islamiah (CybErg'08
Secretary) (mailto:[log in to unmask]) or
me (mailto:[log in to unmask]).

I thank you in advance for your kind attention and
cooperation, and look forward to your submission to the conference.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Alvin W. Yeo
Chairman
Fifth International Cyberspace Conference On Ergonomics 2008
(CybErg'08)
