Deadline Extension: full text submission for all contribution types on March 3, 2014

Call for papers

The well-established ECCE conference series serves as meeting point for the growing community of researchers and practitioners in the area of cognitive engineering and ergonomics. ‘Cognition in the Wild’ refers to interactive settings involving cognitive, social, emotional, and technical factors.

We solicit conceptual and empirical contributions addressing the following topics:

  • situation-awareness
  • elicitation of cognitive referents
  • cognitive task analysis
  • (activation of) engagement
  • capacity-building and sense making
  • workload balancing
  • support for naturalistic decision making
  • experience-based interaction
  • augmented navigation
  • preference management
  • neuro-ergonomics
  • support for changing viewpoints
  • support for developing dynamic capabilities
  • handling ambidexterity
  • support for meta-cognitive processes
  • resilience and diversity


A variety of submission types is available:

  • Research Papers which present quality state-of-the-art research in areas relevant to cognitive ergonomics and engineering. Submissions should not exceed 8 pages (ACM style sheet).
  • Experience or Application Studies in which developers or users of interactive systems can report on experiences in development processes and applications in use. Submissions should not exceed 6 pages (ACM style sheet).
  • Interactive Education Techniques in which trainers, teachers, or facilitators can share conceptual findings and didactic impacts of relevance to cognitive ergonomics, or present scholarly applications for educational settings. Submissions should not exceed 4 pages (ACM style sheet).
  • Cognitive Architecture Demonstrations for sharing development work and receiving focused feedback. This track is an opportunity to showcase and discuss cognitive architectures and their implementation with conference participants. Submissions should not exceed 4 pages (ACM style sheet).
  • Gong Show Contributions will consist of very short visionary ideas presentations concerning the next generation of cognitive architectures and cognitive engineering applications. The submission required is a 2-page extended abstract indicating the originality of the approach (ACM style sheet).
  • Young Researcher Networking Event Contributions from Master or Doctoral students in a relevant area of cognitive ergonomics are solicited. Students can share ideas with peers, and receive feedback from research and development communities. Academic Supervisors are encouraged to nominate suitable candidates. The submission required is a one page abstract (ACM style sheet) reflecting the theme and status of the work.

Submission guidelines

  • Submission language is English.
  • All submissions will be subject to a double blind review by a body of international program committee members.
  • Individuals may appear as co-authors in several papers, but can present only one paper.
  • Submissions will be handled through a Conference Management System exclusively. In order to assist in planning, potential authors are encouraged to register their intention to submit, in advance, at this site:
