PACDEFF/AAvPA 2020, 4-6 November – Proposed Program Structure

The conference this year will showcase not only the best of CRM and Aviation Human Factors with our PACDEFF traditional practitioner focus on Day 1 and 2, but will also allow delegates to gain wider exposure to research and discussion on Human Factors and Aviation Psychology topics, through dedicated AAvPA forums and applied workshops on Day 3.

Proposed Program

PACDEFF 2020 will be a three day conference consisting of world class presentations and contemporary and relevant workshops.

It will be held over 4-6 November at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia
