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 ***
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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecce2019. See below (under Submission Categories) for more information about these submissions.
We invite contributions that 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:
Affective/emotional aspects of human interaction with IT artefacts
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
Usability and User Experience evaluation methods (e.g. in games)
User research concepts, methods, and empirical studies
Human Computer Interaction
Conversational user interfaces / chatbots
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.
Submissions must follow the SIGCHI Conference Proceedings formatting guidelines. Microsoft Word Templates will available for Windows and for Mac in Fall 2018. We will update this page with correct links once the new templates are available. Detailed formatting instructions, as well as more sample documents (including LaTeX files) are available on the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page: http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
See to it that you use the SigConf proceedings template when preparing your manuscript. If you have any questions regarding the formatting of your paper, please contact the programme chairs, Maurice Mulvenna (md.mulvenna [at] ulster.ac.uk) and Raymond Bond (rb.bond [at] ulster.ac.uk).
Proposals for panel sessions should be submitted to Maurice Mulvenna, programme chair: (md.mulvenna [at] ulster.ac.uk).
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 submission to EasyChair in PDF-format.
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] ulster.ac.uk).
If there are any particular requirements for the demonstration (e.g., size of equipment, power, networking etc.) please also email the web and technology chair (ka.boyd [at] ulster.ac.uk). Demonstration submission deadline is the same as for all submissions.
We strongly encourage researchers to suggest topics for the workshops taking place on the 10th of September 2019. The suggested topics should be related to the themes mentioned above (at least to some extent) and sent to the programme chairs, Maurice Mulvenna (md.mulvenna [at] ulster.ac.uk) and Raymond Bond (rb.bond [at] ulster.ac.uk).
Submissions to the Doctoral Consortium
We encourage PhD students to submit to the doctoral consortium taking place on the 10th of September 2019. 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] m-iti.org) and Sara Tranquada (sara.tranquada [at] m-iti.org). 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] m-iti.org) and Sara Tranquada (sara.tranquada [at] m-iti.org). 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.

LOCATION AND VENUE
The conference will take place at Ulster University’s Belfast Campus, in the heart of Belfast city centre, and will be hosted by Ulster University. The venue is in close proximity to many hotels, restaurants, and bars.
Did you know, ‘Game of Thrones’ is filmed in Northern Ireland – why not take the tour (http://www.gameofthronestours.com/)? If you’re interested in ship building, you can visit the world’s largest Titanic attraction (http://titanicbelfast.com).
Belfast is well connected with 2 airports, and given the conference venue is located in the city centre, the attractions and facilities are within walking distance. See www.visitbelfast.com for more information. Visitors also commonly travel via Dublin Airport, where there is a regular direct shuttle to Belfast city centre.
