The design and implementation of interfaces that are natural, intuitive 
to use, and even "cool" is now globally recognized as a crucial factor 
when creating new interactive products. User Experience (UX) research 
and engineering has focused on investigating and designing for 
subjective perceptions of feelings and emotions (e.g. fun, trust, 
feeling of competency) that users experience before, during or after 
interacting with devices and interfaces. This could hence be termed an 
interaction-oriented approach, in which UX is addressed during 
development activities of a certain product or device. Conversely, 
educational psychology established models of the mind, such as the 
Cognitive Load (CL) theory, that often get tested on various tasks or 
devices in a post hoc fashion.
Teachings from both fields are complementary and crucial to the design 
of interactions, interfaces and effective content. However, to date 
there is little known about the dependencies that exist between UX and CL.

This one-day workshop provides a unique opportunity to bring together 
researchers and practitioners with a diverse background to (1) share 
practical experience and theoretical knowledge (2) to discuss possible 
impacts and dependencies between UX and CL, (3) to discuss objective 
measurement techniques and study designs to investigate their 
relationship, and (4) to build a first theoretical framework including 
principles to describe the constructs' dependencies.

The workshop is open to researchers and practitioners with experience or 
interest in dependencies between UX and CL. Participants will be 
selected based upon the relevance for the workshop topics, 
insightfulness, and originality of their submissions that are expected 
in the form of position papers (Springer LNCS, max 4 pages).
Submissions can be made via Email to [log in to unmask]

  - Which UX factors impact CL and in what measure?
  - Which UX factors can get influenced by CL, and to what extent?
  - What theoretical models can support that dependency?
  - How does this relationship evolve or change over time?
  - How can UX and CL be measured objectively and in real-time?
  - Good examples on combining UX and CL in products

Important Dates:
  - May 20th 2013: Submission of position papers [Extended]
  - May 27th 2013: Acceptance notification
  - June 14th 2013: Submission of Camera Ready
  - September 3rd 2013: Workshop
(all times are 23:59 American Samoa time)

Intended Outcomes:
This workshop provides a unique opportunity to bring together 
researchers and practitioners with a diverse background to share 
practical experience and theoretical knowledge which will help define 
and shape future research activities in UX and CL. Accepted papers will 
be published on the workshop website ([log in to unmask]), 
alongside with a summary of the workshop results, written as a 
whitepaper spread to related communities via workshop website, email and 
social networking.

Workshop Organizers:
The workshop organizers are from National ICT Australia (NICTA) and 
Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering, Germany 
(Fraunhofer IESE),  in particular: - Dr. Fang Chen (NICTA)
  - Ronnie Taib (NICTA)
  - Kun Yu (NICTA)
  - Steffen Hess (Fraunhofer IESE)
  - Jessica Jung (Fraunhofer IESE)
