Call for Papers

   The 91st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Aerospace Medical Association will be held in 2020 in Atlanta, GA, USA. This year’s theme is “Optimizing Human Performance via Selection & Training.” 
   Aerospace Medicine rests on a foundation of traditional clinical medicine but goes well beyond. Selection standards are largely based on threats and risks to operational tasks at hand. Training for operators and controllers on physiologic limitations and countermeasures has been a mainstay of optimizing performance. Protective equipment (technology) and Rules of Engagement (policy) add extra rigor in further enhancing human performance. But selection and training are “before the bang,” that is, prior to the actual need for maximum performance. This year, we seek unique or novel combinations of medicine, engineering, physiology, psychology, nursing and social sciences that better select and train individuals for maximum performance, both within the aerospace world and from other “operations” that have high performance demands. Individuals and groups outside of aerospace medicine may offer successful solutions, approaches or perspectives that could be leveraged by aviation or space operations for optimizing performance. You may learn a novel way to optimize your specific operations. Join us in Atlanta.
