A workshop is a meeting to address a topic of common interest to a subset of AutomotiveUI attendees. For example, previous workshops have addressed natural user interfaces, situational awareness, and autonomous vehicles. Workshops are 4 hours (morning: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m; afternoon: 2 p.m. to 6.p.m). Workshops may include keynotes, hands-on activities, practice sessions, group discussions, and panel discussions. The intent is to develop a common understanding of research questions or methods, share different approaches to common questions, or serve to build a new research community. Workshops can, but are not required to, include solicited position papers and presentations.
A Tutorial is a session in which specific material is taught, either by one person or several people. For example, previous tutorials have addressed automotive user design standards, ambient notification prototyping, eye-tracking and EEG methods. It is a half day class (i.e. 4 hours).
In addition to individuals and groups proposing workshops and tutorials on their own initiative, the workshop/tutorials chairs might be able to “matchmake” potential contributors with similar interests. Those with ideas for such topics should contact the workshop/tutorial chairs directly. Preference will be given to workshop/tutorial proposals that identify new topics that have not been addressed in previous years.

The topic of submissions to the workshop and tutorial category must fit into the general topics and goals of the conference. Nonetheless, the following topics are of strategic need to the AutomotiveUI community and submissions tackling these topics are especially welcome (in alphabetical order):
Workshop/tutorial proposals must be submitted as 6-page manuscripts (+ additional pages for short organizer/presenter biographies and references). Please use the ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstract format.
Proposals must contain the following:
The following will be considered in selecting workshops/tutorials, whether:
Proposals will be peer reviewed by two members of the PC and selected based upon their content, the organizers qualifications, and logistical constraints.
Accepted workshops will be advertised with the organizers' names. Thus, we expect all organizers of accepted proposals to be present at the workshop. In addition, we expect workshops to accept attendees commensurate with the number of organizers (approx. 5 attendees per organizer). If otherwise, please inform the workshop chairs prior to submission.
Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. By default, the conference will provide:
