CALL FOR PAPERS:
European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics (ECCE 2017)
September 19-22, 2017, Umeċ, Sweden
*** Extended deadline for all submissions: March 15, 2017 ***
ECCE 2017 is the 35th annual conference of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics. This leading conference in human-technology interaction and cognitive engineering provides an opportunity for both researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experiences from a variety of domains. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners, which address the broad spectrum of challenges and opportunities in this area.
The main theme of ECCE 2017 is Transforming the Everyday. The role of digital technologies in our life has dramatically changed in the last decades, and the scope of cognitive ergonomics has extended accordingly. While industrial, safety-critical, applications and systems remain an essential object of analysis and design, an increasingly important focus of ECCE conferences is on how digital technologies become a part of our everyday environments and practices. The theme of ECCE 2017 reflects this development.
The conference will include two keynote speakers. Kia Höök, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, will speak about Designing with the Body - Somaesthetic Interaction Design. Kris Luyten, Hasselt University, Belgium, will give a talk entitled Making the invisible visible again - toward intelligible interfaces for all.
We invite various types of contributions from researchers and practitioners - long and short papers, demos, posters, doctoral consortium applications, and proposals for workshops and panel sessions - which address the broad spectrum of cognitive ergonomics challenges in the analysis, design, and evaluation of digital technologies. This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
· Design methods, tools, and methodologies for supporting cognitive tasks
· Affective/emotional aspects of human interaction with IT artefacts
· Motivation, engagement, and goal sharing
· Ecological approaches to human cognition and human-technology interaction
· Human-technology interaction in the Internet of Things era
· User research concepts, methods, and empirical studies
· Cognitive processes in design
· Collaborative creativity and experience
· Collaboration in design teams
· Cognitive task analysis and modelling
· Methods and tools for studying cognitive tasks
· Decision aiding, information presentation and visualization
· Human Factors and simulation
· Trust and control in complex systems
· Situation awareness
· Human error and reliability
· Resilience and diversity
· March 15 (extended), 2017, 5pm (CET): Due date for all submissions
· May 2, 2017: Notification of acceptance
· June 15, 2017, 5pm (CET): Camera-ready version of accepted contributions
· July 30, 2017, 5pm (CET): Early registration deadline
· September 19, 2017: ECCE 2017 Doctoral Consortium and Workshops
· September 20-22, 2017: ECCE 2017 Conference
GENERAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
All submissions should be written in English and be anonymous. All submissions fulfilling the submission requirements will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be made available in the ACM digital library.
Submissions must follow the SIGCHI Conference Proceedings formatting guidelines. Detailed instructions and templates are available on the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page: http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template.<http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template> There you can find sample files for SIGCHI conferences proceedings (e.g., ACM_SigChi.docx). If you have any questions regarding the formatting of your paper, please contact the program chairs, Victor Kaptelinin ([log in to unmask]) and Gerrit van der Veer ([log in to unmask]).
Long paper, short paper, and poster/ demonstration submissions should be made through the EasyChair Reviewing System: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecce20170
PAPERS, POSTERS, AND DEMONSTRATIONS
Long papers (max. 8 pages including references) should describe original, completed research work that contributes to the conference topics. Short papers (max. 4 pages including references) may describe work-in-progress, practical experiences, and innovative concepts or approaches, which can promote discussion.
The poster and demonstration sessions aim to show work in a setting, which facilitates open discussion. These sessions are suitable for authors who wish to present and demonstrate their work, smaller projects, systems or prototypes in a more interactive and informal setting during ECCE 2017. Poster and demonstration papers, up to 2 pages (including references), should explain the work to be presented, how it will be presented, and the relevance of the presentation to conference attendees. If there are any particular requirements for the demonstration (e.g. size of equipment, power, networking etc.) please inform the ECCE 2017 technology chair ([log in to unmask]) to ensure that we can accommodate your needs.
WORKSHOPS AND PANELS
We invite proposals for workshops related to the central topics of ECCE 2017. Workshops will be held on September 19, 2017, before the main program of the conference starts. The format provides an opportunity for a group of participants to focus on an important issue of mutual interest. Panels are interactive events, in which panelists present their positions on a topic of broad interest and discuss the positions both with each other and the audience.
Proposals for workshops and panel sessions (max. 4 pages, including references) should be submitted by email to the program chairs, Victor Kaptelinin ([log in to unmask]) and Gerrit van der Veer ([log in to unmask]).
Doctoral consortium, which will be held on September 19, 2017, before the main program of the conference starts, provides an invaluable opportunity for Ph. D. students to present and discuss their work with international experts in a stimulating and safe environment. Doctoral consortium applications, including a two-page summary of Ph. D. work and one-page CV, should be submitted by email to the Doctoral Consortium Coordinator Robyn Schimmer ([log in to unmask]). ECCE 2017. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Doctoral Consortium Coordinator.
GARY MARSDEN STUDENT DEVELOPMENT FUND
SIGCHI student members who are postgraduate students from, and currently based, in developing countries (defined as at http://bit.ly/2gPtEYj where students can also register to be a SIGCHI student member), are eligible to apply to the SIGCHI Gary Marsden Student Development Fund (that may cover a maximum of $2500 USD, including travel (economy class flight tickets, ground transportation), accommodation (student housing if available), and meals during the conference can be covered by reimbursement), if they have an accepted contribution, or are accepted as doctoral consortium student, or volunteering of any kind (such as student volunteer) for the conference.

ECCE 2017 will be organized in Umeċ, a city in Northern Sweden, where beautiful nature meets rich culture and vibrant academic life (https://www.visitumea.se/en). The city, which was selected as the European Capital of Culture in 2014, is the home of a major Swedish university with a strong history of human-technology interaction research and excellent conference facilities and creative environments. One of these environments is Sliperiet (the Grindery in English), located in Umeċ Arts Campus close to the Umeċ River. Together with its neighbours, Umeċ School of Architecture, Umeċ Institute of Design, Umeċ Academy of Fine Arts, the University's museum of contemporary art and visual culture, Sliperiet constitutes a meeting place for interesting encounters and opportunities. The 2017 European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics will take place in this context.
General Chairs: Rikard Harr and Helena Lindgren
Program Chairs: Victor Kaptelinin and Gerrit van der Veer
