CALL FOR PAPERS: European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics (ECCE 2017)
September 19-22, 2017, UmeŚ, Sweden
*** Due date for all submissions: February 28, 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.
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, goal sharing
∑ Ecological approaches to human cognition and human-technology interaction
∑ User research concepts, methods, and empirical studies
∑ Cognitive processes in design
∑ Collaborative creativity
∑ Collaboration in design teams
∑ Cognitive task analysis and modeling
∑ 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
∑ February 28, 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
All submissions should be written in English and authors should anonymise their papers. All
submissions fulfilling the submission requirements will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings that will be made available in the ACM digital library.
Submissions must follow the ACM conference proceedings formatting guidelines. Submissions via
EasyChair must be in PDF format.
Proposals for workshops and panel sessions should be submitted by email to program chairs Victor
Kaptelinin ([log in to unmask]) and Gerrit van der Veer ([log in to unmask]).
Submissions can be long papers, short papers, posters, and demonstrations. In addition, we invite
applications for panel sessions and workshops, and doctoral candidates may submit to the ECCE 2017
Long papers (max. 8 pages) should describe original, completed research work that contributes to the
conference topics. Short papers (max. 4 pages) 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 ECCE2017.
Poster and demonstration papers, up to 2 pages, 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
programme chairs about that to ensure that we can accommodate your needs.
ECCE 2017 will be organized in UmeŚ, 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 a
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.
General Chairs: Rikard Harr and Helena Lindgren
Programme Chairs: Victor Kaptelinin and Gerrit van der Veer
