Announcing A Special Issue of Human Factors

The Editor of Human Factors invite submissions for the upcoming  Special Issue  of the Journal:  Human Factors  in recognition of and in memory of the career and accomplishments of Professor John W. Senders. The Special Issue will be co-edited by P.A. Hancock and G.M. Hancock. John Senders (1920 – 2019) was a pioneer in the discipline of Human Factors Engineering and continued his active career for more than 75 years. A winner of an  IgNobel Prize , Senders is perhaps best known in popular culture for his work on  distracted driving .
