We apologize for any cross-postings.

*Call for Participation*

*Workshop on "Developing Partnership and Advancing Driving Research" *

*Michigan Tech, USA, May 28, 2015*

For further information, visit:

Michigan Tech Transportation Institute (MTTI) hosts the first workshop
on "*Developing
Partnership and Advancing Driving Research". *We would like to invite
and practitioners interested in in-vehicle user interfaces and
applications. This workshop aims to (1) identify plausible research
projects and collaborators for each identified project, (2) introduce
possible funding agencies and proposal submission logistics, and (3) plan
and schedule activities that will culminate in competitive proposal

After the keynote speech, each participant will briefly introduce his or
her research areas and specialties. All participants will also have a
chance to discuss collaborations and ideas with every other participant in
short conversations. Then, we will have subgroups and discuss plausible
research topics and ideas. After the workshop, we will follow up each
special interest group with competitive proposals to secure external
funding. This workshop will also be a good learning and networking
opportunity for graduate students or researchers who have recently started
their journey in the driving research domain.

*Guest Speakers*
- Andrew Kun (University of New Hampshire)
- Bruce Walker (Georgia Tech)
- Andreas Riener (Johannes Kepler University Linz)
- Collin Castle (Michigan Department of Transportation)

*Topics of Research *projects include, but are not limited to:
- Connected vehicle research synchronizing multiple simulators
- Design of multimodal in-vehicle technologies (auditory, tactile/haptic,
- Countermeasures against aggressive driving
- Eco-driving applications
- Driver affect detection and mitigation
- Wearable computers (glass, watch, etc.) and driving
- Simulation research of grade crossings
- Collective transportation information planning and simulation
- Developing a driving education program for youth or older drivers
- Building virtual worlds in the simulator
- Developing in-vehicle companions (speech-based systems, agents, or robots)
- In-vehicle interaction based on BCI (brain-computer interfaces)
- Effects of sleep deprivation on driving
- Driver comfort measure and improvements (seat, noise, heat, etc.)
- Assistive ITS for older drivers
- Vehicle hacking and cybersecurity
- Driver state and workload measures with new devices (fNIRS, EEG, etc.)

*Registration *
There is no registration fee, but an RSVP is preferred to prepare for food
and others. Please RSVP to Steven Landry, assistant organizer,
[log in to unmask], by *April 30th* (Thursday).
Catered lunch and wine & cheese reception will be provided. the day before
and after, the Mind Music Machine Lab
<> will also have a demo
session on research facilities, including multiple driving simulators,
robots, and virtual environment.

Participants, who want to present their research interests and skill sets,
can send a single power point slide to Steven Landry, assistant organizer,
[log in to unmask], by *May 14th* (Thursday).
However, this is not mandatory. You can also attend without any

This workshop is hosted by Michigan Tech Transportation Institute,
