                  European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics 2010

                           the 28th Conference of the

                European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE)

                          in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI

                    24-27 August 2010, Delft, The Netherlands.



                       Caring technology for the future


  Call for Participation - Papers, Posters and Doctoral Consortium





The interdisciplinary journal Interacting with Computers will feature a Special Issue with a selection of the best long papers presented at the conference.


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. 





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.




11 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 made available in the ACM digital library. 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.



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. After the conference, authors of the best quality long papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their conference paper to a special issue of Interacting with Computers.



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 proceedings.


Workshop contribution based poster

To stimulate cross-over between the workshops and the main conference, workshop participants can submit a 2-page poster version of their workshop contribution to the main conference. The poster may cover the same contribution. The deadline for 2-page workshop poster papers is the same as the workshop paper deadline, i.e., the 30th of may. Decisions will be send out the 15th of June, in parrellel with the workshop contribution decisions. Other than a different deadline and the fact that we allow sending in a contribution based on the same material as the workshop contribution, the workshop contribution based poster follows normal poster submission, reviewing, document style, etc. Acceptance/rejection of the poster at the ECCE main conference and inclusion in the ECCE proceedings is thus independent of acceptance/rejection for the workshop.


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 experts.


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.




Authors of all categories should use the Word template that is provided on the conference website for their papers. Instruction how to make an online submission as well as registration fee can be found on the conference website (
