ECCE2010 Workshop on Cognitive Engineering for Technology in Mental Health Care and Rehabilitation

24 August 2010, Delft, The Netherlands


This workshop is endorsed by the International Association of CyberPsychology, Training and Rehabilitation (iACToR)


This workshop at ECCE2010 will investigate the use of technology, such as virtual reality, electronic diaries, multimedia, brain computing and computer games, to support the care and rehabilitation of patients affected by mental disorders. Researchers, developers and mental health professionals will present and discuss their latest work, with a focus on cognitive, emotional and ergonomic aspects on issues as acceptance, usage, experience and accessibility of these innovative technologies. The workshop seeks to attract researchers, designers, and practitioners interested in understanding good design and engineering in the domain of mental health. Workshop participants could come from a variety of backgrounds such as computer science, psychology, design, and psychiatry. The main objective of the workshop is to strengthen this growing community within the domain, thereby allowing a lively exchange of ideas with the aim of supporting the research of the workshop members, as well as working towards the publication of a special journal issue of the Journal of CyberTherapy & Rehabilitation.


Workshop focuses on the technology used in clinical areas such as anxiety disorder, addictions, cognitive rehabilitation, eating disorders, motor rehabilitation, obesity, pain management, personality disorder and autism. Possible topics in this area include, but are not limited to:

* Bio/feedback/physiological measurement

* Simulation/augmentation and presence

* Virtual and augmented reality

* Brain computing interfaces

* Wearable technology

* Internet based technology, tele-health and video-conferencing

* Mobile technology, including mobile diary systems

* Display technology (CAVE, HMD, Projection systems, etc)

* Therapeutic computer games

* Educational and persuasive technology, including psycho-education systems

* Technology support to enhance persons' resilience in stressful situations



This is a full-day workshop. Workshop members will present their work followed by an in-depth discussion. Participants are encouraged to demonstrate the support technology that they might have developed, used, or studied. In the afternoon, participants will also discuss the special journal issue, ways of collaboration and new research questions.



To participate in the workshop please submit a position paper with your ideas, work or demo description. The paper may be up to 4 pages long and when accepted will be published on the workshop website. After the workshop, position papers and minutes from the workshop discussions will be published in the proceedings of the workshop. In advance of the workshop, participants' presentation slides or other material provided will also be made available on the website.
