Thank you for considering to submit to the papers track of AutomotiveUI 2021.
The papers track is meant for your best, original scientific work that is not published elsewhere.
If you are new to the community, we encourage you to explore the AutomotiveUI proceedings (incl. papers track) and adjunct proceedings (incl. the other tracks) of previous conferences (see the top of the page). Note that formatting of papers has recently changed.
Intended contribution and topics: Continuing a tradition from AutomotiveUI 2019 and 2020, we ask authors to identify the main intended contribution of their work. AutomotiveUI spans a variety of topics. This year, we particularly welcome submissions about the following topics:
In addition, there are many other topics that are part of AutomotiveUI, which are listed below under “further details”.
Selection criterion is scientific excellence: Our reviewing process is designed to promote scientific excellence, explained in more detail below. Acceptance is highly competitive: regardless of area, all accepted papers will score highly on contribution, innovation, and quality of thought and writing. Submit your best work!
Paper length: This year, we have a different process for paper length. The length should be proportional to the contribution, with a maximum of 13 pages. More details are provided below under “further details”.
Online format and recording: As the conference is virtual, presentations will be online. To cater to diverse timezones, all presentations of accepted papers will be recorded or pre-recorded. Authors who submit their paper should be aware that a recorded version of their presentation will be made available to the delegates.
Desk-rejects and Quick Rejects: The volume of paper submissions is increasing each year. This growth increases the pressure on our Associate Chairs and reviewer pool to handle the review of all submissions. We anticipate that the COVID pandemic worsens this further as it reduces the availability of reviewers and chairs this year. Similar to other ACM SIGCHI conferences, such as CHI, we therefore follow a process in which there is an opportunity for desk-rejects and quick rejects. The procedures are explained below under “further details”.
We look forward to your submissions!

Technical Program Chairs
Intended contributions are used to match each paper to an Associate Chair and reviewers who have expertise in that particular area. Each author is asked to select one main (and one optional second) intended contribution. We distinguish between the following categories:
Topics can be used to allocate your paper to an AC or reviewer with knowledge in that area.
At this years AutoUI we are particularly interested in submissions in these categories:
However, there is a wide variety of topics that fits the conference, which is outlined below. This list is not exhaustive.
Proposals for sustainable mobility that are relevant for AutomotiveUI. Sustainable development can be interpreted as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This category includes both environmental and social aspects such as:
ACCESSIBILITY & VARIETY OF USERS
ETHICS, HUMAN AND HUMANE EXPERIENCES
AutomotiveUI technologies and interventions, and automated technology can change experience in various ways. This broad category captures aspects such as the relationship between AutomotiveUI and:
NOVEL INTERFACES AND ARTIFACTS
MODELING, SIMULATION, PREDICTION AND COMPUTATIONAL METHODS
RADICAL, ALTERNATIVE, THOUGHT-PROVOKING PERSPECTIVES*
We encourage submissions that take a radically different (“out of the box”) perspective compared to previous AutomotiveUI publications, provided that this perspective is relevant for the AutomotiveUI community and shows scientific rigour and clarity. For example, papers that apply different methods, or that test an idea that goes against popular opinion. This category is not meant to cover what CHI calls “Alt-CHI” (as in: work that is hard to get into CHI). Rather, it encourages different perspectives that are scientifically valid and grounded, but that are in a substantial way different from the “typical” AutomotiveUI paper.
DEVICES & INTERFACES
AUTOMATION & INSTRUMENTATION
EVALUATION & BENCHMARKING
DRIVER PERFORMANCE, BEHAVIOR & EXPERIENCE
The papers track is meant for your best, original scientific work that is not published elsewhere. Please know that there are other tracks at AutomotiveUI if your work is
Authors are invited to submit papers that are formatted in accordance with the new single-column ACM SIGCHI format. Below are more details on paper format and length.
More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
After you submit your AutomotiveUI 2021 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 coordinated by the Technical Program Chairs (TPCs). Submit your best work as the reviewing process is competitive. AutomotiveUI papers cover a variety of areas . However, regardless of area, all accepted papers score highly on contribution, innovation, and quality of thought and writing.
The reviewing process is structured as follows:
AutomotiveUI 2021 is the first year where quick rejects are used, in response to the growing number of submissions and the stress that other factors (e.g., COVID pandemic) put on the reviewing process. The TPC will apply these rejections conservatively.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be published in the ACM digital library.
Full paper authors will be notified of (conditional) acceptance or rejection around the end of June, 2021. At a later time, authors of conditionally accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the final formatted version and details on the presentation, live online discussion panel, and scheduling at the conference.
A member of the program committee and the publication chairs will check that your final output meets the requirements for publication and, if so, will finalize the acceptance. Authors are encouraged to submit their final revision earlier than the deadline, in case it is judged that the paper does not meet the committee requirements. If 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.
In order for the final version of the paper to be published in the conference proceedings, at least one author of accepted papers must register for the virtual conference by the early registration deadline in order for the final version of the paper to be published in the conference proceedings.
At the virtual conference, authors will present their work in a presentation with a pre-recorded video. They will also take part in a live Q&A session about the paper. The exact format of the presentation will be decided and communicated at a later time.
Organizers will attempt to accommodate authors in time slots that are most ideal given their time zone. Note however, that we do a good faith attempt, but cannot guarantee that we can accommodate all individual requests.
Authors who do not submit a presentation or participate in the live session may have their paper removed from the proceedings and the digital library.
