Cognitive Load and In-Vehicle Human-Machine Interaction
Workshop at AutomotiveUI 2013<>
Workshop date: October 27, 2013
Submission deadline: August 30, 2013

In-vehicle human-machine interaction (HMI) can interfere with the primary task of driving. The concept of cognitive load can help us understand the extent to which these interactions interfere with the driving task and how this interference can be mitigated. While research results on in-vehicle cognitive load are frequently presented at automotive research conferences and in related journals, CLW 2013, the third in the series, will provide a unique forum for focused discussions on this topic.

We solicit 2, 4, and 8 page papers exploring issues in cognitive load estimation and management for interactions with in-vehicle devices. Authors are encouraged to also include at least one paragraph addressing standardization, including the introduction of standard definitions, toolsets, and corpora, which could be used to make new results replicable and easily compared to the results of others. Additionally, position papers on standardization are also solicited. Topics of interest include:

·        Cognitive load estimation in the laboratory,

·        Cognitive load estimation on the road,

·        Sensing technologies for cognitive load estimation,

·        Algorithms for cognitive load estimation,

·        Performance measures of cognitive load,

·        Physiological measures of cognitive load,

·        Visual measures of cognitive load,

·        Subjective measures of cognitive load,

·        Methods for benchmarking cognitive load,

·        Cognitive load of driving,

·        Cognitive overload and cognitive underload,

·        Approaches to cognitive load management inspired by human-human interactions.
