A Work in Progress (WiP) is a concise report of late-breaking findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant to the AutomotiveUI community. It represents work that either has yet to reach the level of completion expected of a conference paper or for which a conference paper is not the most effective communication method. That said, appropriate submissions should contribute to the body of AutomotiveUI knowledge, whether realized or promised.
Submission deadline: June 14, 2023
Decision notification: July 12, 2023
Final formatted version: August 4, 2023
Submissions are accepted until 11:59 pm AoE (Anywhere on Earth). These dates are fixed; there will be no extensions.
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts formatted following the new single-column ACM SIGCHI format. Submissions will be accepted through the Precision Conference Submission system. Accepted Work-in-Progress extended abstracts will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., on the conference website) and will secure publication in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to researchers and practitioners worldwide.
A significant benefit of a Work in Progress derives from the discussion between the author and conference attendees fostered by the “face-to-face” presentation of the work. In this spirit, accepted submissions will be presented as a (potentially digital) poster during the conference.
For each submission, one of the authors (usually the contact author) must be nominated to act as a reviewer for other WIP submissions. Each assigned reviewer will be expected to review two proposals. This is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about cutting-edge research. In addition, for Ph.D. students, it may be an excellent first exposure to the review process.
Work In Progress Co-Chairs:
Philipp Wintersberger, Ignacio Alvarez, Jonna Häkkilä
Submissions to AutomotiveUI in the Work in Progress track must cater to one of the topics outlined below.
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 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 to the AutomotiveUI community and shows scientific rigor and clarity. For example, papers that apply different methods or 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). Instead, 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
Submissions require one document, as outlined below:
More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
The Extended Abstract should explicitly communicate the following:
Also, please consider the following policies and guidelines:
Please submit your work using the Precision Submission System and prepare it according to the abovementioned requirements.
Due to the short selection cycle, there will not be an opportunity to make major changes in the extended abstracts between your submissions and the camera-ready final documents. Please ensure that your submission is as close to camera-ready as possible.
The submissions will be selected using a double-blind review process. Neither the reviewers will know the names of the authors, nor will the authors know the names of the reviewers. After the initial reviewers make their recommendation, the Work in Progress Chairs will make the final decision. Accepted submissions will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (on the conference website), and appear in the ACM Digital Library. All submissions are considered confidential during the review process.
Each submission will be reviewed on the following criteria, acknowledging the early-stage nature of the work:
During the WIP review, the first two criteria (‘ability to engender discussion’ and ‘originality’) will be considered twice as important as the other criteria and, therefore, will be weighted accordingly.
The extended abstract shall not contain sensitive, confidential, or proprietary information that cannot be disclosed at publication time. Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference, except for title and author information which will be published on the website before the conference. Summaries of completed work or reduced versions of main track AutomotiveUI submissions are inappropriate as a Work-in-Progress submission and will be rejected.
WiP submission authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by July 30, 2021. Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on preparing and submitting the final formatted version and details on the virtual poster, online poster presentation, 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 needs revisions to meet the committee requirements. If authors cannot meet these requirements by the deadline, the program chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the paper from the program.
Upon acceptance, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline for the work-in-progress abstracts to be published.
