	      ECCE 2007 EXPLORE! INVENT! 

      The 25th Anniversary Conference of the 
  European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE)
          In-cooperation with ACM SIGCHI 

            28-31 August 2007, London, UK.

Extended deadline (29 March 2007) Doctoral Consortium


ECCE 2007 aims to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to 
exchange new ideas and practical experience in all areas of cognitive ergonomics. By 
presenting, criticizing, and defending papers, ECCE 2007 participants will explore 
knowledge and research areas in cognitive ergonomics and invent new directions for 
advancing both theoretical and practical aspects of cognitive ergonomics.  The 
Doctoral Consortium category is new addition for ECCE 2007. The aims of the ECCE 
2007 Doctoral Consortium are 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 experts. 

The Consortium is designed for students currently registered for a PhD in Cognitive 
Ergonomics or a related field (see topics and scope below). 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. 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.


29 March 2007 Late Submission deadline Doctoral Consortium paper and 
              cover letters
 4 May 2007   Notification of Acceptance 
11 June 2007  Submission of Camera-Ready Paper 	 

Participants should submitted the following documents: 
  1. A letter from your supervisor/Principal Advisor on letter-headed paper, 
	-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 2007 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; main 
     contribution(s) of the research to the Cognitive Ergonomics field; a 
     description of the methodology adopted for your research; results obtained so 
     far from your studies; critical analysis of the results in relation to previous 
     research work in the area; and future research plans.  If invited for doctoral 
     consortium this paper will be published in the conference proceedings and 
     later on made available in the ACM digital library.

For the papers all authors should use the Word template that is provided on the 
conference website. Instruction how to make an online submission can be found on 
the conference website (

Selected participants for the Doctoral Consortium can attend the conference 
free of charge. Please note, however, that participants will be expected to pay for 
their own travel and accommodation.

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 cognitively 
complex and thus needs more sophisticated cognitive support, and that diverse user 
groups should be considered from system requirements analysis and initial design 
stages, paying attention to personalization. 

ECCE 2007 Explore! Invent! focuses on innovative concepts or approaches that 
address recent trends. We will explore new types of cognitive tasks and their 
characteristics resulting from the cognitively complex interaction with new IT-based 
systems, and informed design methods dealing especially with personalization 
issues. Through this conference, it is envisaged that participants will report on 
inventions, or innovative ideas and concepts to study cognitive ergonomics in future 
IT-intensive systems. Besides the focus, we also welcome the research works in all 
areas of cognitive ergonomics.

We invite submissions 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: process control, aviation 
traffic control, advanced manufacturing systems, medical 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.
