A workshop is a meeting to address a topic or method of common interest to a selective group of Auto-UI attendees. Typically, there is a focus on contemporary challenges. For example, previous workshops have addressed natural user interfaces, situational awareness, trust in automated driving, and the use of virtual and augmented reality in vehicle studies . You can find more detailed examples on the pages of previous years, for example workshops and tutorials in 2018 and 2017.
Workshops are 3.5 to 4 hours and held either in the morning or afternoon. 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 and foster 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. 3.5 to 4 hours). You can find more detailed examples on the pages of previous years, for example workshops and tutorials in 2018 and 2017.
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 workshops & 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. In particular, we favour topics that bring together groups that are, until now, under-represented at the Auto-UI conference.
The following topics are examples of topics that are typically of interest to the Auto-UI community and submissions tackling these topics are especially welcome (in a random order):
Workshop/tutorial proposals should be submitted as 2-4 pages 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:
Additional resources may be available upon request.
Further members of program committee to be announced at a later time.
