Autonomous Driving has gained attention from academia and industry over 
the last decades. Research organizations and companies have developed 
(semi-)autonomous vehicles and first in-situ studies have been 
conducted. This workshop follows last years first AUI workshop on user 
experience (UX) and autonomous driving (AD). We would like to widen the 
conversation on UX and AD based on the results from last year. The focus 
lays in an in depth discussion on challenges and potentials for UX and 
AD among experts and researchers. We will explore various areas such as 
methodological issues, human factors, entertainment, social driving, and 
novel user interface approaches. The overall aim of the workshop is to 
discuss the future landscape for research within and across each these 

Submissions are invited on the following topics:
- Driver and passenger interaction with (semi-) autonomous vehicles
- Handover situations between drivers and automated cars
- User experience factors relevant for autonomous driving (e.g., 
acceptance, trust and driving fun)
- Novel user interface approaches including natural and gaze 
interaction, subliminal information, and brain computer interfaces
- Driver information displays and how they differ from non-autonomous modes
- Experience studies in the lab and in the field with autonomous vehicles
- Study and evaluation methods for autonomous driving
- Entertainment for drivers and passengers in autonomous cars, as well 
as gamification approaches
- Ethical issues of autonomous driving

We would like to invite practitioners and academics from a range of 
disciplines, including design, marketing, anthropology and ethnography, 
sociology, engineering, and computer science.

We aim to help engaged participants to develop their provocative ideas 
and express them clearly. These ideas then provide new angles from which 
to understand the field. This increase in perspectives, coupled with a 
confidence that a good idea will eventually form itself into a practical 
mainstream solution, increases with richness of thinking within the 
community. Additionally, we aim to create a collection of such works and 
distribute it in appropriate channels such as publications in journals 
or interest. One venue could be Interactions (ACM), as an example. We 
also aim to build a network with and for the attendees (and those with 
similar thinking) to rely on each other and further collaborate on their 
novel ideas.

We provide 2 options to participate in the workshop:
- Option 1: Submit a position paper (2 pages ACM SIGCHI extended 
abstract (EA) format) to appear in the conference Adjunct Proceedings
- Option 2: Submit a short biography and motivation to participate 
including a question that should be addressed in the workshop
Both submissions have to be made via email to
