Call for Late-breaking work submissions

To complement the full papers we invite researchers and practitioners to submit short papers and posters on the subject of mental workload modeling and measurement.

Suitable topics include early results of ongoing work, student papers, practitioner summaries and reflections on practice on any aspect of mental workload. The submissions can take the form of short papers, extended abstracts, and posters or demonstrations.


Short paper format:

Short papers should present a focused, succinct and scientifically robust contribution to the field of mental workload. Short papers are not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as broad and complete as full papers.

The page limit is 6 (references do not count toward the page limit).

Extended abstracts:

Extended abstracts provide the opportunity to share work in progress, interim results, or practitioner viewpoints that may not lend themselves to be presented as a full or short paper. The abstract should convey the background and context of the work, and describe the relevant scientific findings to be presented at the conference.

The page limit is 2 (references do not count toward the page limit).

Poster format:

Posters and demos may be used to present the results of studies not yet at publication stage, or unsuitable for oral presentation at this stage. A short abstract (200 words) should be submitted describing the proposed poster or demo.

The format of the poster is 120cm x 147cm (47” x 58”). Poster boards and fixing material will be provided to mount your posters during the conference.


Guidelines on paper preparation and submission can be found here.

All accepted papers and posters will be published in the digital conference proceedings. All accepted speakers must register for the conference to be included in the final programme and proceedings.

Note: just a small selection of best short papers might be considered to be published in the planned Springer Volume
