Natural user interfaces such as gestures and conversational speech
interaction are an increasingly important topic in research and are
already being applied in a multitude of commercial products. Most use
cases currently involve consumer electronics devices like smart phones,
tablets, TV sets, game consoles, and large-screen tabletop computers.

Motivated by the latest results in those areas, our vision is to apply
natural user interfaces to the automotive domain as well. We envision that
this integration could both reduce driver distraction and allow the
creation of fresh new user experiences for car infotainment and
entertainment systems.

The goal of this workshop is to continue the discussion and exploration of
the design space of natural multi-modal automotive user interfaces and to
continue the fruitful discussions held at the first two workshops on
Automotive Natural User Interfaces at AutomotiveUI 2011 (AutoNUI ’11) and
AutomotiveUI 2012 (AutoNUI ’12). Our chief interest is where and how NUI
techniques can be integrated into the car – both for traditional (manual)
and (semi-) autonomous driving situations.

Workshop Topics
Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to:
* Usage of natural user interfaces in the car, including but not limited
  to gestural and conversational speech interactions
* 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 back seat passengers
* 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 can drive the adoption of new features and
  functionality into car infotainment and entertainment systems
* Automotive user interface frameworks and toolkits that support
  multimodality and NUIs
* New concepts for in-car user interfaces which enhance UX
* New display modalities in the car (e.g., 3D displays, shaped displays)
* NUIs for multimedia, in-car entertainment, and in-car gaming
* Automotive user interfaces supporting the special needs and flexibility
  of (semi-) autonomous driving modes
* User Experience Assessment for in-vehicle NUI

The workshop aims to bring together researchers, students, and
practitioners who are interested specifically in Natural User Interfaces
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 both academic and
industrial institutions.
The number of participants will be limited.
Participants will be selected based on their submission through a review
process. The review process will be conducted by a program committee
consisting of the organizers as well as selected researchers working in
this domain. Registration for the main conference is mandatory for all
workshop participants, but there are no additional costs for attending the
workshop beyond the main conference registration fee.

We invite the submission of either a position paper (2 or 4 pages) or a
paper reporting novel concepts or ideas, (early) prototypes, case studies,
application, or interaction concepts (up to 6 pages). The submission can
be done using our submission system:

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 Extended Abstracts Template. Prepared templates are
available at the workshop website. Submissions need not to be anonymous.
However, reviews will be done anonymously using an evaluation form. Each
paper will receive at least two reviews. All accepted papers will be
published online at the beginning of the workshop.
