Apologies for multiple postings of this announcement!

Please, forward this CFP to potentially interested people. Thanks!






June 23, 2013, Gold Coast, Australia



To be held at the 2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, IV’13

June 23-26, 2013, Gold Coast, Australia



SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013





This workshop is promoted by IEEE ITS Society’s Artificial Transportation
Systems and Simulation (ATSS) Technical Activities Sub-Committee. It is the
second edition to be co-placed with the 2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles
Symposium, to be held in the Gold Coast, Australia, June 23-26, 2013. 

The Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (HFIV’13) aims to
foster discussion on issues related to the analysis of human factors in the
design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles (IV) technologies, in a wide
spectrum of applications and in different dimensions. It is expected to
build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate
interactions among the technical and scientific communities, practitioners
and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be further
developed and enhanced. IV technologies have experienced a great improvement
in the last couple of decades, turning vehicles into more interactive
counterparts in transportation and mobility systems. However, the impact of
such technologies on traffic awareness for the driver and driver’s behavior
towards improving driving performance and reducing road accidents still
demands proper tools and approaches. While the feasibility of incorporating
new technology-driven functionality to vehicles has played a central role in
the automotive design, not always safety issues related to interaction with
the new in-vehicle systems have been taken into consideration. Additionally,
other aspects are equally important and need to be analyzed, such as the
impact technologies that support specific driving functions play on the
overall driving task, as well as their impact on the transportation system
overall performance. Besides current industrial achievements that feature
today’s vehicles with a number of important driving assistance systems, the
perspective of autonomous driving vehicles populating urban environment pose
even more challenging issues. 

Thus, the information and functionality that relies on new ways of
communication has to be presented in a non-intrusive way that complies with
specific design requirements. A system that guarantees efficiency of use,
comfort and user satisfaction can contribute to a more conscious driving
behavior that would directly result from the adoption of IV technologies. 





The HFIV’13 welcomes and encourages contributions reporting on original
research, work under development and experiments of different fields related
to Human Factors. 

Some topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following: 


* Intelligent user interfaces 

 * Human-machine interaction 

 * Human-in-the-loop simulation 

 * Cognitive aspects of driving 

 * Human behavior and capability, affecting system’s design and operation 

 * Modeling and simulation in driver’s behavior analysis 

 * Tools and approaches to analyze human factors 

 * Ergonomics of traveler information systems 

 * Behavioral elicitation and influence 

 * Anthropometric layout of vehicular technical systems 

 * Methodologies to optimize overall system performance 

 * Mixed Reality 

 * Cross-Cultural Design 

 * Augmented Cognition 

 * User Experience and Usability 

 * Computer Aided Ergonomics Analysis 

 * Cognitive Modeling 

 * Effects of in-vehicle systems on driver performance 

 * Tools and methodologies for usability assessment 

 * Input/Output modalities in system ergonomic design 

* Leaning, Anticipating, Adapting balance

* Methodologies for driver training 





Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions reporting on their
current research 

and ideas that motivate discussion during the workshop. Each paper will be
analyzed by 

an International Program Committee according to their relevance and


Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings in a digital
format and will be published in IEEE explore. 

Selected high quality papers of the Workshop will have a publication
opportunity in a special issue of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation
Systems Magazine. 


Authors must follow the IEEE Conference format in the preparation of their

of maximum 6 pages in standard IEEE double column PDF format via the
Papercept system for peer-review by the workshop International Program

The code to upload the papers is the following: 31mbi

All accepted papers will imply that at least one of the co-authors attends
the workshop to present the work. Authors will be given a certain time to
orally present their papers and discussion will be actively motivated among


Camera-ready manuscripts must be sent due on February 28th, 2013. 

Further and up-to-date information can be found on the official web site of
the workshop at  





* Deadline for paper submission: January 15th, 2013

* Notification of paper acceptance: February 8th, 2013

* Camera-ready papers due: February 28th, 2013

* Workshop date: June 23, 10:00, Room 3
