WCW2008 Workshop on Cognition and the Web: Information Processing,
Comprehension and Learning
        April 24th - 26th 2008 Granada, Spain
http://www.cognitive-ergonomics.org/webcog2008/

Usability and accessibility of information are main topics in Web design
that require the application of methodologies and theories grounded in
cognitive science to be applied in a multidisciplinary context. Knowledge
about perception, attention, memory and comprehension processes is necessary
to develop user models that enhance Web use.

Submissions are invited in the following themes:

1. Cognitive Load on Web Use
2. Individual Differences in Web Navigation
3. Hypertext / Hypermedia Comprehension and Learning
4. Research Methodologies and Instruments
5. Users with special needs

The aim is to have representatives from all relevant areas, and to promote
discussion between the different research groups from different countries on
topics of mutual interest.

The committee will accept short as well as full papers. First submission
should consist of an abstract (500 words at maximum). Your proposal will be
accepted, rejected or offered an alternative presentation format.
