The Aging Technical Group (ATG) is a community of professionals from industry, academia, and government organizations who share a common interest in human factors appropriate to meeting the emerging needs of older people and special populations in a wide variety of life settings.
The ATG provides a forum for researchers, service providers, aging individuals, students, and other stakeholders to highlight trends, research, express concerns, and provide insight to meet the needs of the aging and special-needs population. By networking with other professionals and stakeholders, ATG members are afforded insight into new challenges, assessment techniques, and solutions.
Member and ATG news are highlighted in the quarterly newsletter. Student contribution to the field of aging research is recognized with the ATG Scholarship for promising research and the Arnold Small Award for best poster/paper presented during the annual HFES national conference.
