Experiencing Autonomous Vehicles:
Crossing the Boundaries between a Drive and a Ride

Workshop at ACM CHI 2015 Conference, Seoul, Korea

Submission deadline (extended): 19th January 2015
Notifications: 13th February 2015
Workshop: 19th April (Sunday)

Despite decades of research Autonomous Driving has only recently started 
to gain major attention from academia and industry. Research 
organizations and companies have developed autonomous as well as semi 
autonomous vehicles and the first in-situ studies have been conducted.

This one-day workshop covers the crossovers between user experience (UX) 
research and driving/riding in autonomous as well as semi autonomous 
vehicles. The focus lies in an in- depth discussion on challenges and 
potentials for UX and autonomous vehicles among industry experts and 

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 areas.

To explore these areas we invite researchers and practitioners to submit 
their project experience (e.g. work-in-progress, demo, etc) or position 
on one of the following topics (the list is not exhaustive):

Submissions are invited including (but not limited to) the following topics:
* Driver and passenger interaction with (semi-)autonomous vehicles
* Handover situations between drivers and automated cars
* User experience of 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 with autonomous vehicles in the lab and in the field
* 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

The focus of the workshop is on brainstorming ideas to help define the 
topic area and to foster a longer-lasting community. The workshop will 
include position paper presentations as well as hands-on featuring 
break-out sessions. The goal of the workshop to have a research agenda 
for autonomous driving as well as innovative designs to tackle some of 
the problems raising for HCI research.

Workshop candidates are invited to submit a position paper (max. 4 pages 
in the CHI extended abstract format) to the workshop organizer Alexander 
Meschtscherjakov ([log in to unmask]). At least one 
author must register for the workshop and the CHI conference.
