The 1st International Symposium on Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications (H-WORKLOAD 2017) will be held in Dublin (June 28-30, 2017) at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland.

We encourage researchers and practitioners to present late-breaking work submission as it can provide a valuable opportunity for sharing ideas and fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues.

Guidelines on paper preparation and submission can be found here.


All accepted speakers must register for the conference to be included in the final programme and proceedings.

The late submissions can take the form of :

  • Short papers,
  • Extended abstracts
  • Demo and Poster

Short papers:

A short paper is a much more focused and succinct contribution to the field of mental workload and should convey a scientific result. Short papers are not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as broad and complete as that of full papers.


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

Accepted short papers will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceeding.

Extended abstracts, demos and posters:

All submissions in this area should provide the opportunity to share work in progress or interim results that  may not lend themselves to be presented as a full length research paper or as short paper submission yet.

The demonstrations track complements the overall program of the conference. Demonstrations show implementations of novel, interesting, and important technologies or software which can serve for the purpose of mental workload measurement.

The page limit for extended abstracts and demos is 2 pages (references do not count toward the page limit).  Submitting this 2-page contribution is not required but a poster must be submitted anyway through the online system as a pdf in the format 120cm x 147cm (47” x 58”). Poster boards and fixing material will be provided to mount your posters during the conference.

Accepted extended abstracts and demos will appear in the conference proceedings


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