Submissions consist of two related documents. Failure to submit either document will result in an automatic rejection. The required documents are:
Both the Extended Abstract and the poster should explicitly communicate:
Also, please consider the following policies and guidelines:
The metadata of your submission is due on July 11, 2018, AoE. Please submit your work using the Precision Submission System and prepare it according to the requirements stated above.
Due to the short selection cycle, there will not be an opportunity to make major changes in the extended abstracts between your submissions and the camera-ready final documents, so please ensure your submission is close to camera-ready.
The submissions will be selected using a double blind review process. Neither the reviewers will know the names of the authors, nor will the authors know the names of the reviewers. After the initial reviewers make their recommendation, the final decision will be made by the work-in-progress co-chairs. Submissions are rated on two scales, overall evaluation and reviewer’s confidence. Accepted submissions will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., through USB sticks and on the conference website) and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. All submissions are considered confidential during the review process.
Each submission will be reviewed on the following criteria, acknowledging the early-stage nature of the work:
The extended abstract shall not contain sensitive, confidential, or proprietary information that cannot be disclosed at publication time. Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference, with the exception of title and author information which will be published on the website prior to the conference.
Summaries of completed work or reduced versions of main track AutomotiveUI submissions are inappropriate as a Work-in-Progress submission and will be rejected.
Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the publication-ready version, and details on the poster 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 work-in-progress chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the extended abstract from the program.
Upon acceptance, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the work-in-progress abstracts to be published.
Authors are expected to attend the conference and will be assigned a time and location to present their poster to conference attendees. The authors will also have the chance to introduce their work to the audience in a WiP madness session before their poster presentation.
Work-in-Progress submissions whose authors are not at the conference to present their poster may be withdrawn from the Adjunct Proceedings and the Digital Library.
Accepted Work-in-Progress poster abstracts and poster PDFs will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., through USB sticks and on the conference website) and will secure publication in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to researchers and practitioners worldwide.
