About the conference

AutomotiveUI 2018, the International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces (UI) and Interactive Vehicular Applications, invites companies, foundations, institutions, and other entities to support this year’s conference through financial sponsorship.

AutomotiveUI is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. Sponsored by ACM SIGCHI, it is the only international conference focusing on in-vehicle interaction technologies. The conference highlights novel vehicle technologies through models and concepts for enhancing the driver experience, performance, and behavior, the development of semi and fully autonomous driving, and the needs of different user groups, including passengers and pedestrians. The goal is to support the development of automotive user interfaces that are safe, easy to use, useful, and desired by users.

Over 200 attendees, both from academia and industry, come together from across the world within a forward looking perspective necessary to continue supporting the road users of today and the future. Automotive UI is a great place to exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners, as well as to meet leading experts in the field, researchers and students who will form the next generation of experts in Automotive UI.

In its 10th year, AutomotiveUI will be held for the first time in Canada. The conference will consist of one day of workshops/tutorials at the University of Toronto campus and two days at the conference hotel with a variety of interaction formats, including oral/poster/video presentations, keynotes, panel discussions, as well as demos of new technology developments from the industry and academia. These formats offer opportunities for automotive manufacturers/suppliers and other entities to present their brand values, and to share their understanding and vision of vehicle technologies.

We provide several levels of sponsorships with benefits as described below. Exhibitor space is also available if interested.  Please contact chair2018@auto-ui.org for more information.
