The role of digital technologies in our life has dramatically changed in the last decades, and the scope of cognitive ergonomics has extended accordingly.
Our special theme for ECCE in 2019 is ‘Designing for Cognition’:
Interacting with digital technologies, apps, wearables and ‘Internet of Things’ generally 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.
