Poster Presentation Guidelines


We will provide 60" x 40" (1500mm x 1000mm) poster boards which can be oriented either as landscape or portrait. We suggest using ANSI E (44" x 34") or A0 (1189mm x 841mm) paper sizes when printing your poster so that it will easily fit the board. Poster setup will start in the morning of the day of your session. Room assignment will be provided in the conference program.

Authors are responsible for printing their own posters. We will provide pins or adhesive tapes for mounting the posters on the boards.

Poster sessions will start with one minute madness, where each presenting author will have one minute to give a serious or witty introduction to their poster. The minute will be strictly enforced, as usual. Please send your one-minute Powerpoint or PDF presentations to

AutomotiveUI‘12 invites submissions in the following categories:

1) Full and Short Papers (submission deadline: June 12th, 2012) - see camera-ready instructions

2) Workshops (submission deadline: July 6th, 2012)

3) Work-in-progress & Interactive Demos (submission deadline: September 7th 14th, 2012)

4) Industrial Showcase (submission deadline: September 7th 14th, 2012)

5) Workshop Position Papers (for submission deadline see below)


Full and Short Papers

Authors are invited to submit papers that are 4 or 8 pages long, formatted in accordance with the two-column ACM SIG format. We are happy to consider a variety of styles for inclusion in the proceedings, such as academic papers, design sketches, interaction concepts, and industrial case studies. Along with the paper, authors are also encouraged to submit an accompanying video. The papers will be selected in a peer-review process. All accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings and we plan to secure publication in the ACM digital library.

At the conference, papers will be presented as oral talks or posters. Eight page papers will be presented as talks, while 4 page papers will be invited for presentations as either oral talks or posters.

If your paper is accepted, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the final version of the paper to be published in the conference proceedings.

Please submit your work using the EasyChair conference submission system.

Submission deadline: June 12th, 2012

Camera-ready instructions:

Camera-ready PDFs including the correct copyright statement and proper pagination (8 pages for full papers, 4 pages for short papers) should be sent to <> as soon as possible but no later than August 24th, 2012.

Please read the submission and formatting instructions for detailed information on how your full/short paper should be written and formatted and to access the template.


The successful workshop day at AutomotiveUI’11 with over 75 participants was highly encouraging and we will continue with this submission category. These workshops provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss themes of common interest in a less formal setting. We are open to all topic areas, but do encourage workshop proposals covering emerging and future trends in the field.

The proposed workshop should consider topics that can move the field forward and suggest promising new research directions. We accept proposals for full day (~6 hours) or half day (3-4 hours, morning or afternoon) workshops. Interested workshop organizers are requested to submit a proposal to the conference co-chairs. If the proposal is accepted, the workshop is publicized as part of the conference. The criteria, reviewing and acceptance will be handled by the workshop organizers. Workshops are only open to people accepted by the workshop organizers and who register for the main conference (workshop participation itself is free of charge).

Workshop proposals should be submitted as 4 page (maximum) write-ups. Please format your abstract according to the ACM SIGCHI format. Proposals must contain the following:

  • general goal of the workshop
  • topics of interest
  • proposal for the schedule of the workshop including the preferred type and number of participants you will expect to take part
  • ideas for publicizing the workshop
  • procedures for handling the reviews
  • thoughts about how the outcome of the workshop can be can be captured and retained in a meaningful way
  • (short) organizer biographies

Upon proposal acceptance, organizers should set up an external web page delivering all the necessary information for interested participants.

Submissions should be made by sending them directly to

Submission deadline: July 6th, 2012


Work-in-progress & Interactive Demos

Work-in-progress and interactive demos should report on ongoing or late-breaking work, or include research prototypes that can generate discussions and demonstrations with the other conference participants. The format for this track is a 2-page paper that, if accepted, will appear in the adjunct proceedings of the conference. In addition to the abstract, authors are also encouraged to submit an accompanying video. Participants in this track will present their work in a poster / demonstration session and have one minute each to introduce their posters to the conference audience.

The demonstration submissions must also include a separate appendix or video describing in detail the elements of the demonstration, the technical requirements of the demonstration (required visual and acoustical settings, space requirements, the power supply needed, networking options, etc.).

Please format your abstract according to ACM SIGCHI format templates.

If your abstract is accepted, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the work-in-progress and/or interactive demonstration abstracts to be published in the adjunct conference proceedings.

Submissions (abstract, poster supplement) should be made by sending them directly to

Submission deadline: September 7th 14th, 2012.


Industrial Showcase & Panel Discussion

We encourage submissions from industry representatives that showcase recent product introductions, new concepts and prototypes, design tools and processes, or any other contribution relevant to automotive user interfaces. The goal is to provide a forum for automotive industry viewpoints, needs, and activities around the topic of Automotive UI, and to close the gap between research and practice.

This year we will conduct some or all of this track in a panel format in hopes of promoting a healthy dialog among participants in a variety of industrial as well as academic roles. Two potential topics for the panel(s) are the following:

  • UI design and development processes: Does the academic perception of these processes square with industrial reality? Which tools and technologies are used today, why, and which are envisioned to be needed in the future?

  • Driver distraction: How does industry address this issue in their UI designs, and how can academic research be made more relevant (i.e., how can it go beyond simply saying “activity X is distracting and this is a problem”)? How can industry and the academy help drive international standards and user interface design guidelines that help to reduce driver distraction?


We welcome submissions in a variety of formats, including presentation slides, videos, interactive demos, etc., and we are happy to discuss alternative ways to submit and present your work. As a default, please use the format for Works-in-Progress and Interactive Demos (see above). Submitted abstracts and/or panel position papers will appear in the adjunct proceedings, which will be distributed at the conference and published electronically on the conference website.
