Natural user interfaces by means of gesture and speech interaction have become an important topic in research as well as already for products. Most use cases currently center around consumer electronics like, e.g., smart phones, TV sets, or gaming consoles.
Motivated by the latest results in these areas, our vision is to apply natural user interfaces like gesture and speech interaction to the automotive domain as well. This integration might reduce driver distraction in certain cases and allow designing new experiences for operating infotainment and entertainment systems.
The goal of this workshop is to explore the design space of natural multi-modal automotive user interfaces in order to analyze where and how new interaction techniques can be integrated into the car. We would like to bring together practitioners and researchers to identify and discuss challenges and possibilities of automotive natural user interfaces. This also includes user experience aspects in research and development of automotive interaction design.
Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to:
Usage of natural user interfaces in the car
Visions of future natural user interfaces in the car
Design tools and methods for natural and multimodal interaction in the car
NUIs for the driver, the co-driver, and the backseat area
Using NUIs for interconnection to the outside world
Understanding how NUIs impact the driving experience
Approaches for transitioning to NUIs in the car
Experience and discussion of potential difficulties of integrating NUIs into the car
Relevance of traditional UX factors for gesture and speech in the automotive context
Researching how UX factors might be the driver to integrate new user interfaces into the car
Automotive user interface frameworks and toolkits that support multimodality and NUIs
New concepts for in-car user interfaces increasing UX
NUIs for Multimedia, in-car entertainment, and in-car gaming
The workshop aims to bring together researchers, students, and practitioners, who are interested specifically in the automotive context. In particular, we hope for participants with different backgrounds and perspectives, e.g.,automotive user interface (UI) designers, experience designers and engineers from a scientific as well as from an industrial perspective. The number of participants will be limited. Participants will be selected based on their submission through a review process conducted by the organizers as well as selected researchers working in this domain. The registration for the main conference is mandatory to participate in this workshop. Despite the conference fee, participating in this workshop will not involve addional costs.
Interested workshop participants are requested to submit either a position paper (1 or 2 pages) or a paper reporting novel concepts, (first) prototypes, studies, application, or interaction concepts (up to 4 pages). The submission can be done using our submission system: <http://blog.hcilab.org/autonui/submission/> <http://blog.hcilab.org/autonui/submission?pk_campaign=email-cfp-02&pk_kwd=submission> http://blog.hcilab.org/autonui/submission/<http://blog.hcilab.org/autonui/submission/?pk_campaign=email-cfp-2nd&pk_kwd=submission>. The paper should contain a description of the area of research, specific work (empirical or theoretical) on the workshop topic, and the innovative character of the research.
All submissions should be prepared according to the standard SIGCHI Conference Publications Format. Each paper will receive at least two reviews. All accepted papers will be made available online.
