                  European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics 2010
                           the 28th Conference of the
                European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE)
                    24-27 August 2010, Delft, The Netherlands.
                       Caring technology for the future

                Call for Participation – Papers, Workshops, Posters
                     and Doctoral Consortium


ECCE 2010 aims to provide an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in all
areas of cognitive ergonomics. By presenting and discussing innovative
research, ECCE 2010 participants will explore knowledge and research
areas in cognitive ergonomics with the aim of developing and enhancing
the relationship between cognitive sciences and technical information
processing system developments. More details will be made available soon
on the conference website.


The roles of cognitive ergonomics in the development of IT artefacts and
complex systems have become more and more important and widespread. So
far, theoretical, empirical, and practical aspects of cognitive
ergonomics have been studied in various domains that make intensive use
of IT. Recent trends of cognitive ergonomics indicate that human
interaction with IT-based systems is increasingly complex and thus needs
more sophisticated social, cognitive and affective support, and that
diverse user groups should be considered from system requirements
analysis and initial design stages, paying attention to personalization,
care and complexity.

ECCE2010 conference theme is: caring technology for the future. Computer
technology is increasingly being used in a care context, for example in
healthcare centers, in the home, at work, but also in crisis situations.
In these contexts, caring technology is developed to improve
individuals’ mental and physical health or quality of live, to enhance
persons’ resilience in critical situations and to support recover of
undesirable states. The conference will explore new type of cognitive
ergonomics issues in this area. Through this conference, it is envisaged
that participants will report on inventions, or innovative ideas and
concepts to study and develop cognitive ergonomics in future caring
technology. Besides this focus, we also welcome the research works in
all other areas of cognitive ergonomics.


We invite papers that report on innovate concepts, fundamentals
(concepts, theories, models, and principles), empirical studies,
application and case studies, methodologies, surveys, systematic
reviews, and critical appraisals which are relevant to the following
topics (but not limited to):
-Human decision making and problem solving
-Knowledge structure and mental model
-Human learning behaviour
-Human error and reliability
-Situation awareness
-Collaborative work
-Affective/emotional aspects of human interaction with IT artefacts
-Design methods, tools, and methodologies for supporting cognitive tasks
-Cognitive task analysis and modelling
-Human-centred automation
-Task/function allocation
-Decision aiding, information presentation and visualization
-Innovative user interface concepts (including augmented and virtual
reality, multimodal user interfaces, and wearable computing)
-Intelligent agent design
-Training systems design
-Joint cognitive systems design
-Supporting diverse user groups (the disabled, the elderly, children,
personality traits, cognitive styles, gender, culture etc.)
-Evaluation of cognitive performance, social interaction, usability, etc.
-Methods and tools for studying cognitive tasks
Examples of application or industrial domains include: eHealth services,
medical systems, process control, aviation traffic control, advanced
manufacturing systems, intelligent vehicles, railroad systems,
ubiquitous computing, smart home, mobile devices, digital TV, web
applications, electronic commerce, game and entertainment, e-learning,
business information systems, etc.


18 Jan 2010 Submission of Workshop proposal
1 Feb 2010 Notification of Acceptance Workshop proposal
1 April 2010 Submission of Extended Abstract, Poster & Demonstration
papers, and Doctoral Consortium paper and cover letters
15 May 2010 Notification of Acceptance
1 July 2010 Submission of Camera-Ready Papers
24 August 2010 Workshops
25-27 August 2010 ECCE2010 Conference

We invite various types of submissions as described below. All
submissions must be written in English. Submissions for all the
categories will be published in the conference proceedings. The authors
must declare in which category their paper is submitted. However, the
authors of some full and/or short papers that would otherwise be
rejected for the lack of space may be invited to re-submit their work as
a poster paper.

This is a new element to the Conference. Submissions for one-day
workshop are invited. The workshops will be held on 24 Aug 2010, a day
before the main body of the ECCE 2010 conference. Workshop proposers
should submit a 2 pages paper using the Word Template that is provided
on the conference website. The workshop paper should explain the topic
of the workshop, how it is set up, the manner in which people can
participate and the aim of the workshop (e.g. writing/editing a book, a
research proposal, or a special issue for a journal). The organising
committee should have members from at least two different organizations
or institutes. International consortia are welcomed and preferred. All
proposals must be written in English. In addition, a cover letter should
be included with background information about the workshop organisers,
and the manner in which workshop participants will be invited.

Long papers category
Long papers should describe authors’ original, completed research works
that contribute to the topics relevant to the conference. Initially
authors should submit an extended abstract of 4 pages using the Word
Template provided on the conference website. After acceptance of the
extended abstract the authors will be invited to submit camera-ready
papers of 8 pages maximum.

Short papers category
Short papers should describe work-in-progress, industrial experiences,
and innovative concepts or approaches, which can promote discussions
among attendants. Initially authors should submit an extended abstract
of 2 pages using the Word Template that is provided on the conference
website. After acceptance of the extended abstract, authors will be
invited to submit camera-ready papers of 4 pages maximum.

Poster & Demonstration category
The Poster and Demonstration sessions aim to show work in a setting
which facilitates open discussion. Authors who wish to present and
demonstrate their work, smaller projects, systems or prototypes in a
more interactive and informal setting during ECCE 2010, may choose this
category and provide a description. Poster and demonstration papers
should not exceed 2 pages in total and authors should use the Word
Template for the preparation of their papers, which is provided on the
conference website.  Accepted papers will be published in the conference

Doctoral Consortium category
The aim of the ECCE 2010 Doctoral Consortium is to provide an
opportunity for PhD students to participate in multi-disciplinary
in-depth discussions of their work with fellow students and a panel of

The Consortium is designed for students currently registered for a PhD
in Cognitive Ergonomics or a related field. Preference will be given to
students who have carried out some initial research but are not so far
down the road that they are getting ready to submit their thesis. The
format for the doctoral consortium requires each participant to give a
15 minute presentation on their research. This will be followed by
questions from other participants, and feedback from a panel of experts.

Application Procedure

1. A letter from your supervisor/Principal Advisor on letter-headed
paper, stating:
  •that you are registered for PhD studies
  •your research topic
  •what stage your research is at
  •why you and your research would benefit from participation in the
ECCE 2010 Doctoral Consortium.
2. A 4 pages long paper, prepared using the Word Template (provided on
the conference website) of the conference proceedings, containing the
following: a structured abstract, the aims and objectives of your
research; the main contribution(s) of the research to the Cognitive
Ergonomics field; a description of the methodology adopted for your
research, the results obtained so far from your studies, a critical
analysis of the results in relation to previous research work in the
area, future research plans.


Applicants who are selected to take part in the doctoral consortium will
be asked to pay a very "student friendly" registration fee. Specific
details can be found on the website. Please note, however, that
participants will be expected to pay for their own travel, accommodation
and subsistence.
