A workshop is a meeting to address a topic or method of common interest to a selective group of AutomotiveUI 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.
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.
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.
What is the selection process?
Each proposal will be reviewed by two of the workshop/tutorial chairs. Proposals will be accepted based on their topics, anticipated engaging interactions, realistic time frames, and expected outcomes. We may get in touch with you if similar proposals need to be refined or merged or if changes are necessary to get your proposal accepted.
What do I need to do if the proposal gets accepted?
Submit a two-minute pitch video to advertise your workshop/tutorial. Set up a website for your workshop. Also, do not forget to register for the conference.
What are the biggest changes since last year?
This year, workshops/tutorials will be in person!
How many workshops/tutorials can I be on as an organizer?
You can help organize up to two proposals (e.g., if accepted, one scheduled for morning, one for afternoon session) as organizers are expected to attend their own workshops/tutorials.
The topic of submissions to the workshop/tutorial category must fit into the general topics and goals of the conference. In particular, preference will be given to proposals that address topics that are currently strongly debated or topics that have not been addressed in previous years. Also, we favor topics that bring together groups that are, until now, under-represented at the AutomotiveUI conference.
The following topics are examples of topics that are typically of interest to the AutomotiveUI community and submissions tackling these topics are especially welcome (in random order):
Submissions consist of workshop/tutorial description including short organizer/presenter biographies and should be uploaded to the Precision conference submission system:
A. Extended Abstract:
More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
Submissions must contain the following:
The following will be considered in selecting workshops/tutorials:
Proposals will be reviewed by two workshop/tutorial co-chairs and selected based upon their content, the organizers’ qualifications, and logistical constraints. Co-chairs will reach out to authors of these submissions to discuss details about format and support. It is our goal to support selected workshops/tutorials to achieve their respective purpose and to ensure all attendees may actively contribute to/learn from these sessions.
Accepted proposals will be advertised with the organizers' names. Thus, we expect all organizers of accepted proposals to be present at the workshop/tutorial.
In addition, we expect workshops/tutorials to accept attendees commensurate with the number of organizers (approx. 5 attendees per organizer). If otherwise, please inform the workshop/tutorial chairs prior to submission.
Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. By default, the conference will provide:
