ECCE 2018 - European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics
With As Special Theme: Modeling, Simulation and Games
With As Special Theme: Modeling, Simulation and Games
ECCE 2018 is the 30th annual conference of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE). This leading conference in human-media interaction and cognitive engineering provides an opportunity for both researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experiences from a variety of domains.
The role of digital technologies in our life has dramatically changed in the last decades, and the scope of cognitive ergonomics has extended accordingly. While industrial applications and systems remain an essential object of analysis and design, an increasingly important focus is on how digital model and game-based technologies become a part of our everyday environments and practices. Therefore, we have chosen for Modeling, Simulation and Games as ECCE 2018’s special theme, addressing questions such as:
ECCE 2018 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 cognitive ergonomics challenges in the analysis, design, and evaluation of digital technologies.
General Chairs: Egon L. van den Broek (vandenbroek<&>acm.org) and Herre van Oostendorp (H.vanOostendorp<&>uu.nl)
Programme Chairs:: Christian Stary (Christian.Stary<&>iku.at) and Françoise Détienne (francoise.detienne<&>telecom-paristech.fr)

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 volunteering of any kind (such as student volunteer) for the conference.
*This is the regular fee for the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE) for the year 2018.
**This is the regular fee for the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE) for PhD students for the year 2018.
***As an alternative to a yearly fee, a full member can also choose to pay for a five-year membership, which fee is equal to four times the regular fee.
****EACE members who have reached the official retirement age can choose a life-time membership. In this case, you pay the fee that equals to four years but you remain a member of the Association for the rest of your life.
We seek contributions relevant to the broad spectrum of cognitive ergonomics challenges in the analysis, design, and evaluation of digital technologies. In particular, work related to the special theme Modeling, Simulation and Games, is invited. This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
All submissions should be written in USA English and authors should anonymize 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 in the ACM digital library, the most comprehensive collection of full-text articles and bibliographic records covering the fields of computing and information technology.
Please note that ACM has developed a new webpage, which contains the new proceedings templates: http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html/. If you have any problems with the templates, please contact ACM's TeX support team at Aptara: firstname.lastname@example.org. ACM provides several templates to format articles. For this conference, please use the SIGCHI proceedings template only. After your submission is accepted, please submit:
All submissions should be made through the EasyChair Reviewing System.
The size of long papers can be maximally 8 pages, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. The size of short papers can be maximally 4 pages, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. The papers should be submitted to EasyChair in PDF-format. The submission deadline is March 16, 2018, 5 PM (CET).
The authors of the best 4 or 5 long papers will be invited to transform their paper into a paper suited for the leading journal Behaviour & Information Technology (BIT). At the same time these authors are also asked:

Utrecht City Centre - Walking distance from Utrecht Central Station (10 minutes)
Utrecht is a municipality in the Netherlands, capital and most populous city of the province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern corner of the Randstad conurbation and is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands with a population of 345,080 in 2017.
Utrecht is the heart of the Netherlands, a city full of vitality. The historical city center is small enough to explore on foot but large enough to enjoy world class festivals, modern architecture, trendy shops and interesting museums for days on end. Check the official visit Utrecht website (www.visit-utrecht.com) for the upcoming events, things to do, restaurants and more.
Utrecht's ancient city centre features many buildings and structures several dating as far back as the High Middle Ages. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the 8th century. It lost the status of prince-bishopric but remains the main religious centre in the country. Utrecht was the most important city in the Netherlands until the Dutch Golden Age, when it was surpassed by Amsterdam as the country's cultural centre and most populous city.
Utrecht is host to Utrecht University, the largest university in the Netherlands, as well as several other institutions of higher education. Due to its central position within the country, it is an important transport hub for both rail and road transport. It has the second highest number of cultural events in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam. In 2012, Lonely Planet included Utrecht in the top 10 of the world’s unsung places.
Direct train: Schiphol Amsterdam Airport – Utrecht - € 8.70 (one-way) - 4x per hour - 30 minutes
Also direct trains from Rotterdam, The Hague, and Eindhoven Airport.
€3.00 (1 trip) - €6.00 (1-day) - € 11.50 (3-days)
Many buses (e.g. 2 and 28) from the Central Railway Station stop at “Janskerkhof”. From there it is a 4 min. walk to the conference building.
Often expensive in the Netherlands (costs ca € 100 – 120)
This collection of unique, small-scale hotels with their own conceptual identity offers four different hotels, all located in the city center, close to the conference venue:
