AutomotiveUI Papers are archival publications of original research. Authors are invited to submit papers formatted in accordance with the new single-column ACM SIGCHI format. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings which will be archived in the ACM digital library. Authors of accepted papers will present their contribution at the virtual event.
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.
The DC brings together PhD students working on topics related to automotive user interfaces and interactive vehicular applications, providing them with an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their peers and senior faculty. It will further provide opportunities for PhD students to network and facilitate professional development by sharing research interests.
A Work in Progress (WiP) is a concise report of late-breaking findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant for the AutomotiveUI community. It represents work that either has not reached a 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 make a contribution to the body of AutomotiveUI knowledge, whether realized or promised.
Video Demo submissions are short motion presentations that showcase examples best communicated in this format or provide supplementary content to another submission (e.g. a paper). Video demos can, but are not restricted to present your study design, data collection design, progress over time, study results, research projects, design concepts and visions of the future.
The following provides a non-exhaustive list of conference topics.
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:
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.
