Due to global uncertainty around when restrictions on travel and social distancing would be lifted, the decision was taken to postpone the 55th Human Responses to Vibration Conference until June 2022.

The venue has been changed to the University of Exeter campus and the new dates have been set as Wednesday 22 June to Friday 24 June 2022.

The UK Conference on Human Responses to Vibration (UK HRV) is an annual opportunity for specialists from the UK and further afield to exchange information, disseminate research findings and receive updates on current issues related to human exposure to vibration. Submissions will cover all aspects of hand-transmitted vibration, whole-body vibration and motion sickness.

The theme for the 55th conference will be Human Response to Vibration in Transport and the Built Environment. While hosted on the main University of Exeter campus, it will focus attention around the newly opened VSimulators facility located within the University of Exeter Engineering Research Building at Exeter Science Park. The conference will include demonstrations of the facility to enable delegates to see and experience its capabilities throughout the event.
