Technical Committee Sessions and Meetings

There will be a short meeting of the IEA-Technical Committee on Human Simulation and the IEA-Technical Committee on Anthropometry to inform about their topics and activities. The symposium will also be followed by a meeting of the IEA-Technical Committee on Human Simulation and Virtual Environments (TC HSVE) during the afternoon of June 28. Committee members and everybody else who is interested is welcome! Please tell us in time if you are willing to join.
