Rhodes 2020 - Conference postponed to September 2021

We are all aware of the current situation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the organizing committee of HUMANIST conference 2020 takes the COVID-19 situation seriously and is following the recommendations for appropriate action from health advisory agencies.

Also taking into account the current travel situation with closed borders even in Europe, and the fact that no one knows at this stage how the situation will evolve in the coming months, the organising commitee decided to postpone the conference to September 2021, still in Rhodes. 


For authors all accepted abstracts will remain valid for the new dates. 

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to see you in Rhodes in 2021.

The organizing team of HUMANIST 2020

The 7th International HUMANIST Conference will bring together researchers, experts and stakeholders from several multidisciplinary communities that are active in the field of Human Factors in Transport. It is a unique and attractive forum to present current and planned activities as well as to share ideas and experiences.

  • How is the road users behaviour, safety and mobility affected by new traffic scenarios including automated vehicles, novel vehicle types, car-sharing schemes and Mobility as a Service? 
  • What concerns, needs and expectations do people have in relation to these emerging technologies and services? How do people see themselves in the digital transport epoch? How can inclusion and accessibility be promoted and ensured?
  • Which are the priorities and technological solutions to be envisaged and adopted within a smart cities transportation environment?
  • Which directions should ergonomic  designs evolve in  so as to ensure adequate passive safety in the changing environments?
  • How and to what extent should current HMI (Human Machine Interaction) concepts and tools be adapted to address the evolving technologies?
  • How to integrate non-connected and potential socially excluded citizens within future transport systems. 

Papers on these topics and many more besides will be presented and discussed in Rhodes during the 7th international HUMANIST Conference.
