                   Call for Participation in the Workshops

					in the

	European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics 2010
                            the 28th Conference of the
                 European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE)
                     24-27 August 2010, Delft, The Netherlands.

                        Caring technology for the future

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics 2010 (ECCE2010) is the  
annual conference of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics  
(EACE). This year, for the first time, the main conference will be  
preceded by a day of workshops. The workshops aim to provide an  
opportunity for researchers and practitioners with similar interests  
to exchange new ideas and practical experience in their specific areas  
of cognitive ergonomics. By presenting, discussing, and reporting  
innovative research or ideas, workshop participants will explore these  
research areas with the aim of developing and enhancing the  
relationship between cognitive sciences and technical information  
processing system developments.


IMPORTANT DATES

30 May 2010 Submission of Motivation & Workshop paper to workshop  
organizers
15 June 2010 Notification of Acceptance Workshop Participation
24 August 2010 Workshop



THE WORKSHOPS TOPICS



*Cognitive Engineering for Technology in Mental Health Care and  
Rehabilatation
The use of technology, such as virtual reality, electronic diaries,  
multimedia, brain computing and computer games, to support the care  
and rehabilitation of patients affected by mental disorders is a  
relatively new and advancing research area. In this workshop,  
researchers, developers and mental health professionals will present  
and discuss their latest work, with a focus on cognitive, emotional  
and ergonomic aspects on issues as acceptance, usage, experience and  
accessibility of these innovative technologies.

*Towards an ergonomic mammography: rethinking the acquisition process
Breast cancer is the major cause of cancer-related deaths among the  
female population. Mammography is currently the best technique for  
reliable detection of early, non-palpable, potentially curable breast  
cancer. A considerable percent of women avoid doing regular  
mammography exam due to pain and discomfort caused by the strong  
compression over the breast. Other studies mention that forceful  
compression of the breast may rupture small blood vessels and  
encourage distant spread of undetected cancers. However, few studies  
are focusing on improving the comfort for women during examination.  
The main motivation of the workshop is to reduce/eliminate pain for  
women during mammographic exam. We believe that rethinking the  
acquisition process can lead towards an ergonomic mammography to  
promote comfort and protection for women. The aim of the workshop is  
to evaluate the state-of-the-art in mammography from the point of  
women’s health perspective, to rethink the mammography acquisition  
process and to establish a research proposal.

*Putting users’ first : the importance of human-centred design in the  
development of mobile applications and services

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested  
in exploring the state of the art research in relation to human  
factors aspects of mobile application and service design. The workshop  
format will allow each member to present a short paper on their  
current work and open this up to general discussion afterwards. The  
overall aim of the workshop will be to put forward the contents and  
structure for an edited book on this topic with contributions from the  
workshop participant

*Robots That Care

Many countries face pressure on their health care systems. To  
alleviate this pressure, ‘self care’ is often stimulated with the use  
of new, assistive technologies. Social robotics is a research area  
where robotic technology is optimized for various social functions.  
One of these functions is self care assistance. To foster progress in  
this area of ‘social robotics for self care’, coordinated efforts  
between research institutes, companies and end users are needed. This  
workshop focuses on bringing these stakeholders together and creating  
a shared research agenda.

*Eye-Tracking = Reading the Mind

Eye activity measures are utilized to make inferences about human  
activity. While much is known how to use the eye to infer workload,  
less is known about inferring higher-level cognitive processes from  
lower-level eye movements. The main question addressed in the workshop  
is how to use eye activity measures in order to support higher-level  
cognitive processes. The workshop mainly serves to establish an  
international special interest group interested in making research  
proposals about the above-mentioned topic. The workshop entails a full  
day using the morning to establish a short overview of the state-of- 
the-art in eye activity measures and applications. The afternoon will  
be used to form consortia and generate research proposal ideas. People  
interested are required to shortly motivate their attendance by  
describing their research interest, experience, and a visionary  
statement that identifies knowledge gaps and possible approaches to  
bridge them (max. 500 words).

*3D Quality of Experience : A Workshop on the Human Factors of  
Stereoscopic Displays

At what appears to be a turning point in the public acceptance and  
commercial viability of stereoscopic 3D entertainment, the human  
factors community has to face a number of challenges with regard to  
the effects of stereoscopic displays, and methods of assessing such  
effects. We propose a one-day workshop to provide an overview of the  
state-of-the-art of human factors insights in this area, and define an  
agenda for future research. The workshop will be split into two  
distinct parts. During the morning session, we aim for invited talks  
by 3-4 leading scholars, who are asked to provide an overview of the  
field of human factors of stereoscopic displays. During the afternoon  
session, we will have a number of talks that were selected from an  
open submission process. For this purpose, a call for papers will be  
published inviting scholars to submit their most recent and most  
innovative empirical results in the area of human factors of  
stereoscopic displays.
