We apologize for any cross-postings.

Call for Position Papers  
Eindhoven, The Netherlands, October 27-30, 2013

Submissions due: September 8, 2013 

The AutomotiveUI 2013 Doctoral Consortium aims at bringing  together PhD
students working on topics  related  to  the  field  of  automotive user
interfaces and  interactive  vehicular  applications,  offering  them an
opportunity to present and  discuss  their  research  to  an audience of
peers and senior faculty. PhD students will receive feedback  from their
peers about the appropriateness of their  idea/topic/research  approach,
and will enjoy discussing their  research  with  senior  members  of the
community. It is  scheduled  prior  to  the main  conference  program on
Sunday, October 27, 2013.

The topics of the AutomotiveUI 2013 doctoral colloquium are the  ones of
the main conference, including

 > new concepts for (multi-modal) in-car user interfaces,
 > input/output while driving, interaction with navigation systems,
 > evaluation and benchmarking of in-car user interfaces,
 > assistive technology in the vehicular context,
 > methods, tools, standards for automotive user interface research,
 > detecting and estimating user intentions, cognitive load, distraction
   subliminal techniques for workload reduction,
 > biometrics and physiological sensors as a user interface component,
 > applications and user interfaces for inter-vehicle communication,
 > in-car gaming and entertainment,
 > different user groups and user group characteristics,
 > in-situ studies of automotive user interface approaches,
 > driving safety research using real vehicles and simulator studies.

The AutomotiveUI 2013 doctoral  colloquium  welcomes  contributions from
doctoral  students  currently  registered    in  a  PhD   program. Ideal
candidates should have worked on their  dissertation  for  some  months;
thus, they should have chosen a research topic  and  possibly  have also
selected  theoretical  and  methodological    approaches.   Selection of
participants will be based  on the  quality  of the  submission  and its
relevance to the conference topics of interest.

We intend to provide travel grants to allow more  students to take  part
in the DC; however, at this time we are still negotiating with potential
sponsors so that we cannot  guarantee at all to offer travel  grants. If
you  think you  are eligible for  receiving a  travel grant and  want to
apply in case  we have  grants, please mention this in your application.
We will come back to you and request the required information timely.

Submissions must be single-author, but the name of the supervisor should
also be mentioned  within  the  paper. The language of the colloquium is
English and all  submitted  materials must be also in  English. Research
students  wishing to apply for the DC should submit up to 5 pages inclu-
ding figure, references, and a 100 word abstract using the format of the
main  conference (ACM  SIGCHI two  column  page  layout; available here:

The position statement should:

 > clearly formulate the research question,
 > present  key related  work (current  status of the problem domain and
  related solutions),
 > point out significance and innovation (expected contributions),
 > describe the research methodology that is applied or planned,
 > outline  your contribution  to the  problem  domain and highlight the
  uniqueness of your approach,
 > pose questions and issues (that you'd like to discuss at the DC),

In addition, a biographical sketch (CV) should be submitted, including a
paragraph  stating what you hope to get out of  participating in the DC.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed  by the  members  of the  doctoral
colloquium  program committee. Please send applications (position state-
ment,  biographical  sketch)  as soon  as  possible  but  no later  than
September  8,  2013  to  Andreas  Riener, Doctoral  Colloquium Chair  at
<[log in to unmask]>.  Should you have any  questions  don't  hesitate
to contact me any time (at the same address).
