Attention: Here you can find the general information about the submission process. Individual criteria can be found under the corresponding track web page.

Quick Links to the Templates:

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.

  1. Submissions must use the single-column ACM SIGCHI template. 
    • LaTeX. Please use the latest version of the Master Article Template - LaTeX to create your article submission. It is also available as a template on Overleaf. With the “sample-sigconf.tex” template, use the “manuscript” call to create a single column format, i.e., setting \documentclass[manuscript]{acmart}. Please review the LaTeX documentation and ACM’s LaTeX best practices guide should you have any questions. Below are some quick guides. 
      • Single-column anonymous submissions: \documentclass[manuscript, screen, anonymous]{acmart}
      • Single-column non-anonymous submissions: \documentclass[manuscript, screen]{acmart}
      • Trick: within the manuscript, details can be anonymized with the \anon{...} command, so that you only need to remove the "anonymous" parameter in the 'documentclass' to have all the anonymized texts show up again for the camera-ready version.
    • Word: Write your paper using the Submission Template (Review Submission Format). Follow the embedded instructions to apply the paragraph styles to your various text elements. The text is in single-column format at this stage and no additional formatting is required at this point. A video demonstration of the template can be found here:

More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here:

Anonymization: The submissions for the Papers and Work in Progress track need to be anonymized for double-blind review. We use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. However, you do need to remove identifying information from the title/header area of the paper and also make sure that it does not appear in the document’s metadata. Citations to your previous work must NOT be anonymized so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account. We encourage authors to refer to their previous work in the third person. Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper, while encouraged, is left to the authors’ discretion.

Selection Criteria

  • Originality, writing, and formatting. In a nutshell, 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.
    In more detail:
    Your submission must be original; it cannot be published or be under concurrent review elsewhere. If you make multiple submissions to AutomotiveUI 2023, along any track, they must be distinct from each other.
  • Relevance to AutomotiveUI: We expect submissions to bear relevance to the AutomotiveUI community and previous publications. Submissions should strive to make this explicit by referencing proceedings of previous years, which are available through the ACM digital library.
  • Contribution types and Topics. Please have a look at the contribution types and conference topics for AutomotiveUI 2023 (bottom of page) or contact the Technical Program Chairs if you are unsure whether your submission fits the conference.
  • Prepare supplementary material (optional). We encourage authors to supply supplementary materials that can aid transparency, openness, and future replication of their work. Your submission may be accompanied by a short video or by other supplementary material. Videos do not have a specified limit for duration, although we recommend staying within 5 minutes. Other supplementary material may include, for example, survey text, experimental protocols, source code, and data, all of which can help with replicability of your work. Any non-video supplementary material should be submitted as a single .zip file, including a README file with a description of the materials. Your total submission size (paper + supplementary material) must be no more than 100 MB. Note, however, that your submission must stand on its own and will be reviewed as such. It is the authors’ responsibility to check for compliance with local (institutional) regulations regarding sharing of study materials and participant data. 
  • Previous work. In instances where your new submission builds directly on a project described in another, as-yet-unpublished paper, it is recommended that you submit an anonymized version of that other paper as supplementary material. You may choose to also include a note of explanation as to the novel contribution of the present submission. If the previous work is already published, it may simply be cited in the body of the paper as per usual, and should not be included in the supplementary materials.
  • Make your submission. Submit and resubmit your material using the Precision conference submission system ( until the submission deadline. Be sure to select the appropriate conference and submission track (i.e., SIGCHI > AutoUI 2023 > {Track}).
    Only for papers: To aid the review process, authors are requested to indicate which type of research contribution that the submission makes. This information will be used to find the most appropriate meta-reviewers / ACs (Associate Chairs). See above. 
  • Opening of submission system. The submission system will open for submissions approximately four weeks before the submission deadline.
  • Language editing. Papers should be submitted in the English language and be free of spelling or grammar errors. This includes text embedded in figures. We recommend having your article proofread by native speakers of English before submission.
    ACM has partnered with International Science Editing (ISE) to provide discounted language editing services to ACM authors. ISE offers a comprehensive range of services for authors including standard and premium English language editing, as well as illustration and translation services. Visit Please note that these editing services are at the author’s expense and do not guarantee publication of a manuscript.
  • Accessibility. Please make every effort to make your submission accessible. Please see guide to an accessible submission (explanation for CHI 2019, most of it applies to AutomotiveUI 2023 as well)
  • Paper formatting. When you submit your paper it should be formatted using the provided template. If your paper gets accepted, our publication chairs will contact authors about the requirements for final submission. They might also contact if any errors occur during final checks of the format. Authors should be aware that AutomotiveUI works on a limited time-line. Some of this communication will happen during the summer, shortly after decision notification. More details will be provided after paper acceptance.


The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date may affect the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.
