AutomotiveUI Papers are refereed publications of original research on interface use, product evaluation, theories of human interaction, the adoption of new technology, or aspects of driver interfaces relevant to this conference. AutomotiveUI Papers are read and cited worldwide and have a broad impact on the development of theory, method, and practice in this domain.
Authors must present accepted Papers at the AutomotiveUI conference. Accepted manuscripts appear in the AutomotiveUI Proceedings, which is listed in the ACM Digital Library. The ACM Digital Library includes a mechanism to enable authors to provide perpetual free public access to their papers. See below for details.
Accepted Papers may come from any area of AutomotiveUI activity: academia or industry; science, engineering, or craft; analysis or design. Acceptance is highly competitive: all accepted Papers will score highly on innovation, contribution, and quality of thought and writing. Submit your best work!

Authors are invited to submit papers that are 6 - 10 pages formatted in accordance with the two-column ACM SIGCHI format. In line with many other SIGCHI conferences, references do not count towards the page limit.
Write and format your Paper. Your submission must be original; it cannot be published or be under concurrent review elsewhere. If you make multiple submissions to Automotive 2018 Papers, they should be distinct from each other. This restriction applies even if the overlap in review timelines between AutomotiveUI and another venue is just a few days or a few hours, and even if it is your intention to withdraw the submission from the other venues as soon as it is accepted by one of them. This restriction also applies even if the other venue allows simultaneous submission. We will make every effort to identify simultaneous submissions, and AutomotiveUI reviewers are often familiar with the papers under review at other related conferences and journals; as such, submissions that are substantially similar run the risk of being rejected by AutomotiveUI and the other venues on grounds of duplication alone.
Papers must have a length of 6 to 10 pages. Authors are encouraged to submit a paper of length proportional to its contribution. Reviewers will be instructed to weigh the contribution of a submission relative to its length, so papers with a length disproportional to their contribution will be rejected. In exceptional cases, the authors may be requested to shorten papers for the camera ready stage. References do not count toward the mentioned length of 6-10 pages. Page length includes figures, appendices, and an abstract of less than 150 words. Submissions that exceed these limits will be rejected.
Papers need to be anonymized for blind review. We use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. However, you do need to completely remove identifying information from the title/header area of the paper, and also make sure that it does not appear in the document’s meta-data. Citations to your own previous work must NOT be anonymized, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account. We encourage authors to refer to their previous work in the third person. Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper, while encouraged, is left to the authors’ discretion.
Please have a look at the overall submission topics of AutomotiveUI ’18 or contact the program chairs if you are unsure whether your submission fits to the conference.
Also, please have a look at the following resources:
Prepare supplementary material (optional). Your submission may be accompanied by a short video or by other supplementary material. Video figures do not have a specified limit for duration, although we recommend staying within 5 minutes. Other supplementary material may include, for example, survey text, experimental protocols, source code, and data, all of which can help with replicability of your work. Any non-video supplementary material should be submitted as a single .zip file, including a README file with a description of the materials. Your total submission size (paper + supplementary material) must be no more than 100 MB. Since not everyone who reads a Paper will view the supplementary material, your submission must stand on its own and will be reviewed as such.
In instances where your new submission builds directly on a project described in another, as-yet-unpublished paper, it is recommended that you submit an anonymized version of that other paper as supplementary material. You may choose to also include a note of explanation as to the novel contribution of the present submission. If the previous work is already published, it may simply be cited in the body of the paper as per usual, and should not be included in the supplementary materials.
The submission system will open for submissions approximately four weeks before the submission deadline.
After you submit your AutomotiveUI Paper, it will undergo a rigorous double-blind review process. Neither the reviewers will know the names of the authors, nor will the authors know the names of the reviewers. This process is managed by the Technical Program Chairs (TPCs) and Associate Chairs (ACs) of the program committee. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained throughout the review process.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be published in the ACM digital library.
At the highest level, the submitted papers present novel and interesting content that is well presented. More, specifically, reviewers should consider the following for their reviews:
Full paper authors will be notified of (conditional) acceptance or rejection on June 29, 2018. Authors of conditionally accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the camera-ready version by July 20, 2018, and details on the presentation and scheduling at the conference.
A member of the program committee and the publication chairs will check that the final version meets the requirements for publication and, if so, will finalize the acceptance. Authors are encouraged to submit their revision earlier than the deadline, in case it is judged that the paper does not meet the committee requirements. If the authors are unable to meet these requirements by the deadline, the program chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the paper from the program.
Upon acceptance, 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.
Authors are required to present their work in a scheduled session with other AutomotiveUI papers. Paper authors with accepted papers will either provide a presentation of 10 minutes length (+5 minutes of questions) or present a poster at a dedicated session within the main conference track.
We expect authors to be present for the full session in which they present. Please test your presentation in advance (e.g., during the coffee breaks), and present yourself to the session chair before the start of your session.
Papers whose authors do not present their paper may be removed from the proceedings and the digital library.
