SJSU Psychology Department’s Spartan Psychological Association Research Conference (SPARC): Dr. David C. Foyle

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share this info with you:

“I am forwarding the following information about the SJSU
Psychology Department’s Spartan Psychological Association Research
Conference (SPARC) because I thought our keynote speaker may be of interest
to students in your Human Factors program.

SPARC is a research conference which gives undergraduate and graduate
students an opportunity to present their psychological research in talks and
poster sessions.  Each year we also have a keynote speaker.

Our featured speaker this year is Dr. David C. Foyle, who is a SJSU alumnus.
Dr. Foyle is currently a Senior Research Psychologist in the Human Factors
Research & Technology
Division at the NASA Ames Research Center.  Below is
his talk title and date/time.  I’ve also attached an announcement and
schedule for SPARC.

Title:  Aviation Human Factors Research: Designing Human-Centere Systems
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 21, 3:00 – 4:00, LomaPrieta Ballroom

More information about SPARC and Dr. Foyle can be found at the following

We hope to see some of your students at the conference!
