Dear Cognitive Ergonomics Colleague,
As you may know, Ulster University is hosting the European Association for Cognitive
Ergonomics’ 31st European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics (ECCE-2019) in Belfast in
September 2019. Check out the web site here: http://ecce2019.eace.net/.
This is one of the longest-running computing conferences that presents a forum for research
in human-computer interaction and ergonomics with an emphasis on the theories
underpinning cognitive processes and functions, reporting on experimental work, and on the
ergonomics of psychological and behavioural level interactions, appliances and the use of
information technology which is designed to fit with human capabilities.
It’s such an important forum, designed to give space for ideas, reflection and discussion for
the community. We wanted to seek your help to reinvigorate the conference for Belfast in
2019, as well as for future years. The cognitive ergonomics active research community is still
relatively small in number but includes some of the best-regarded research groups, people
and cultures in the world.
The Proceedings of all the past ECCE conferences is available for download on our website
(http://www.eace.net) either as PDFs, or as part of the ACM Digital Library. We also have an
arrangement with the respected journal, Behaviour and Information Technology, that
selected papers from each conference will be published in the journal.
We are asking you to reach out to your research group members, colleagues and friends,
and encourage submission of world-class research in cognitive ergonomics and in
ergonomics/human factors to ECCE for the 22 February 2019 submission deadline.
Consider submissions across the board: long papers, short papers, workshops ideas, demos
concepts, panel suggestions, and especially important, great PhD researchers to sign up to
the Doctoral Consortium on 10th September 2019.
The cognitive ergonomics community has a great opportunity to increase the number of
significant research papers in the conference, thereby increasing interest in the conference
and attracting researchers to attend. Also making it a great go-to conference for PhDs and
more establish researchers alike with a programme designed to let ideas be heard, explained
in more detail and fully discussed in a lively interaction.
The organisers have invited some great keynotes for the conference. Nadia Berthouze, UCL
Interaction Centre, Alan Dix Computational Foundry, Swansea and John McCarthy, UCC
Cork Neuroscience Centre have all agreed to speak.
So, please visit http://ecce2019.eace.net/ and make a difference to the Cognitive Ergonomics
research community – your community.
