ECCE 2017 is the 35th annual conference of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics. This leading conference in human-technology 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 main theme of ECCE 2017 is Transforming the everyday. 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, safety-critical, applications and systems remain an essential object of analysis and design, an increasingly important focus of ECCE conferences is on how digital technologies become a part of our everyday environments and practices. The theme of ECCE 2017 reflects this development.

ECCE 2017 seeks to encourage dialogue and discussion among participants about the main theme as well as general topics of this conference series.  We invite various types of contributions from researchers and practitioners - long and short papers, demos, posters, doctoral consortium applications, and proposals for workshops and panel sessions - which address the broad spectrum of cognitive ergonomics challenges in the analysis, design, and evaluation of digital technologies.

The conference will take place from 20th - 22th September 2017 at Sliperiet (eng, The Grindery), which is on Umeå University’s Artistic Campus.
