Thank you for considering to submit to the papers track of AutomotiveUI 2024.
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 the formatting of papers has recently changed.
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: The length should be proportional to the contribution, with a maximum of 13 pages. More details are provided below under “further details”.
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. 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”.

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 year's 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
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.
Alternatively, you can use Word (not recommended): 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: https://youtu.be/sUGEoPaXRKQ

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: 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
After you submit your 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 2023 is the third 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.
AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: 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.
Full paper authors will be notified of (conditional) acceptance or rejection around the end of June, 2023. 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.
At least one author of accepted papers must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the final version of the paper to be published in the conference proceedings.
