Dear colleagues,

ECCE 2019 - 31st European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics

Please find below the Call for Papers.

Please accept our deepest apologies if you receive multiple copies.

Thank you for your kind attention.

4th CALL FOR PAPERS: 31st European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics (ECCE 2019)

10-13 September 2019, Belfast, Northern Ireland

 *** Due date for all paper submissions: 22 February 2019 ***

Registration is open at


We are pleased to confirm that ECCE 2019 will adopt The ACM Publishing System (TAPS). This means some changes in the submission process. Accepted manuscripts transition from the “submission template” to the “ACM master article template” before submitting to TAPS. ECCE authors must successfully validate their document and push their document through TAPS to produce the PDF/HTML output by the ECCE-2019 Camera Ready Submission Date of 31 May 2019. This means that your paper will be available on ACM Digital Library at the beginning of the conference in September 2019. More links available at conference website.

ECCE 2019 is the 31st annual conference of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE). This leading conference in human-computer interaction, human factors design and cognitive engineering offers an unparalleled opportunity for both researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experiences from a variety of domains. In addition to ACM proceedings, best papers will be published in the Behaviour & Information Technology Journal (Impact Factor =1.380).

Our special theme for ECCE in 2019 is ‘Designing for Cognition’. Interacting with digital technologies, apps, wearables, ‘Internet of Things’ can be cognitively and emotionally demanding in our everyday lives. Now more than ever, we need to consider how ‘Designing for Cognition’ can help us engage in and enjoy seamless intuitive interactions. The theme also involves new ways to understand cognition when interacting in the wild and to research and evaluate our interactions across work, home and community, especially considering the rise of knowledge derived from user data analytics.

ECCE 2019 seeks to encourage dialogue and discussion among participants about general topics as well as this year’s special theme. We invite various types of contributions from researchers and practitioners – long and short papers – which address the broad spectrum of challenges in cognitive ergonomics and in the analysis, design, and evaluation of digital technologies.


Submissions should be made through the EasyChair Reviewing System: See below (under Submission Categories) for more information about these submissions.

The following topics are of interest to the conference (but is not limited to):

  *   Affective/emotional aspects of human interaction with IT artefacts

  *   Cognitively-orientated human factors

  *   Cognitive science

  *   Cognitive processes in design

  *   Cognitive task analysis and modeling

  *   Collaborative creativity and experience

  *   Collaboration in design teams

  *   Collaboration in end-users and design teams

  *   Decision aiding, information presentation and visualization

  *   Design methods, tools, and methodologies for supporting cognitive tasks

  *   Development of usability evaluation methods

  *   Ecological approaches to human cognition and human-technology interaction

  *   Human error and reliability

  *   Human Factors and simulation

  *   Human-technology interaction in the Internet of Things era

  *   Methods and tools for studying cognitive tasks

  *   Motivational/emotional aspects of human interaction with IT artefacts

  *   Motivation, engagement, goal sharing

  *   Resilience and diversity

  *   Trust and control in complex systems

  *   Situation awareness

  *   Usability and User Experience evaluation methods (e.g. in games)

  *   User research concepts, methods, and empirical studies

  *   Human Computer Interaction

  *   Virtual reality

  *   Conversational user interfaces / chatbots

  *   Web design

  *   Graphical user interfaces


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, which will be made available to conference attendees and published in the ACM digital library.

Please visit for all information on publishing, including the templates to use to create your manuscript for submission into The ACM Publishing System (TAPS).

Please note a change to the process, where accepted manuscripts transition from the “submission template” to the “ACM master article template” before submitting to TAPS for ECCE (should authors have any support questions, please contact ACM’s support team at   [log in to unmask]).

ECCE authors must have successfully validated their document and have pushed their document through TAPS to produce the PDF/HTML output by the ECCE-2019 Camera Ready Submission Date of 31 May 2019.

If you have any questions regarding the formatting of your paper, please contact the program chairs:

Maurice Mulvenna (md.mulvenna [at]

Raymond Bond ( [at]

Proposals for panel sessions should be submitted to Maurice Mulvenna, programme chair: (md.mulvenna [at]


Long and Short Papers

The size of long papers can be 8 pages at most, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. The size of short papers can be 4 pages at most, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. The papers should be anonymised before submitted to EasyChair in PDF-format.

Best long paper will be selected for a special issue of Behaviour & Information Technology journal (impact factor 1.380)


Submissions can also be demonstrations, where the aim is 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 2019. Demonstration papers should not exceed 2 pages (including references), explaining the work to be presented, how it will be presented, and the relevance of the presentation to conference attendees. Demonstration proposals should be submitted to Maurice Mulvenna, programme chair: (md.mulvenna [at]

Workshop submissions

We strongly encourage researchers to propose workshops around this or related research themes in cognitive ergonomics. Workshops will take place on 10th September 2019 before the main ECCE conference on 11-13th September 2019. Please send your workshop proposal to the programme chairs (see below) as a 2-page proposal in PDF format. Paper Submissions for accepted workshops will follow the same paper submission guidelines as for the main ECCE conference.

Submissions to the Doctoral Consortium

We encourage PhD students to submit to the doctoral consortium taking place on the 10th of September 2019. We have secured two leading experts to mentor PhD research students at the Doctoral Consortium. Professor John McCarthy, University College Cork and Dr Julie Doyle, Dundalk Institute of Technology are experts in experience design and interaction design, respectively. The submission deadline is the same as the main paper submission deadline (see above). Submissions should be sent to the Doctoral Consortium Chairs, Ana Caraban (ana.caraban [at] and Sara Tranquada (sara.tranquada [at] As soon as a student submits to the consortium he or she is eligible to apply for a limited number of scholarships covering the conference registration fee. The application for scholarship should be sent to the Doctoral Consortium Chairs, Ana Caraban (ana.caraban [at] and Sara Tranquada (sara.tranquada [at] Doctoral Consortium papers can be 4 pages at most, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. Submissions should provide a summary of the PhD student’s work (including aspects such as research context, achievements, future directions and issues experienced) and a 1-page CV. Submissions must be in PDF format.

Gary Marsden Student Development Fund

SIGCHI student members (or interested in becoming members) who are postgraduate students from, and currently based in, developing countries 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. See ECCE-2019 website for more information on how to apply.
