Dianne Murray

Dianne Murray was elected President of the Association in 2012. With a joint degree in Computer Science and Psychology, she has been active in the HCI field since 1979. As a research scientist in the renowned UK National Physical lLaboratory she carried out some of the earliest work in adaptive interfaces and then held a Senior Fellowship in the University of Surrey’s Social and Computer Sciences (SCS) innovative multidisciplinary research group. She has been a long-time educator in HCI and SE, held posts at City University, and at Kings College, London (both UK) and is a highly experienced usability consultant. She was a founder member and, for many years, an Executive Committee member of the UK’s BCS interaction group, was ACM SIGCHI’s first International Adjunct Chair and was the co-initiator of the Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI) conference series, being its first Chair in 1993. She has successfully managed and edited the journal “Interacting with Computers”, first for Elsevier Science and now for Oxford University Press, since its creation in 1986 and been Editor-in-Chief since 1999. She has served on the editorial boards of UMUAI and IJHCS and is an Editor for the Springer HCI book series. She has published 8 books and manuals and written most recently about personal privacy concerns in the 2012 book she co-edited on “Usability in Government Systems”. She is currently co-editing a book on “Interacting with Presence in VR” and co-produced the Proceedings of the 2103 EACE Conference.


Flore Barcellini

Flore Barcellini is the secretary of EACE since 2014. She works as associate professor in Ergonomics at the Research Center of Work and Development at Cnam (National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts), Paris, France. After receiving a master degree in physics engineering, she engaged into master and Ph. D in Ergonomics. Now, her research field deals with cooperative work, design project management, participatory design, online epistemic communities and constructive ergonomics. She was the co-founder of the French National Network of Junior Researchers in Ergonomics (www.rjce.org) and its first president; she is currently the secretary of the French college of professors in ergonomics (www.ce2-ergo.fr).


Marja Liinasuo

Marja Liinasuo's work experience covers mental health care, training and human factors studies.  She has Ph.D. in psychology in human visual perception and has been working in the domain of Human Factors Engineering since 2005. Currently she works as Senior Scientist in VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. There, she has participated in national and international research projects on complex work systems. These projects have focused on the evaluation and development of human work practices and tools in various, mostly safety-critical domains such as emergency response, nuclear energy production or telecommunication. Since 2013 she is Assesseur of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE).


Tjerk de Greef

After receiving his master’s degree, he was offered a position at the Netherlands organization for Applied Research (TNO), Defense, Safety and Security where he was mainly involved in human factors related research for the Royal Netherlands Navy. In 2012 he succesfully defended his dissertation at Delft University of Technology on the topic of designing ePartners for dynamic task allocation and coordination in high-risk professional domains such as Urban Search & Rescue and the Navy. From 2012, he holds a post-doc position at Delft University of Technology, in close collaboration with the Oxford Institute of Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict (University of Oxford), on the topic of ethics and automation. Since 2010 he is the treasurer of the European Association of Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE).

Elly Lammers
Membership Officer   Elly Lammers

During my stay at the Department of Psychology – Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam EACE was born. From the first ECCE conference, in 1982 at this University, I was involved. After the conference I volunteered: keeping the membership administration, giving support to the meetings of the executive committee, to the organization of conferences, elections of the executive committee candidates and replacing the secretary if absent. I also moderate the mailing lists for EACE members and other interested professionals. In April 2012 I received the Royal Dutch Knighthood in the order of Orange Nassau for the work I have done for EACE during 30 years.


Assaf Botzer

Assaf Botzer received his MSc and Ph.D. from the department of industrial engineering & management at Ben-Gurion University, Israel, where he specialized in Human Factors engineering. His former education was in Psychology. He is currently a faculty member at the department of industrial engineering and management at Ariel University, Israel. He specializes in cognitive engineering and studies decision making with decision support systems, interaction styles under stress, physiological responses to effort and stress and human interaction with gaze-interfaces. He has joined the EACE board as an observer in 2013
