We are pleased to announce the following workshop offered in conjunction 
with the 6th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and 
Interactive Vehicular Applications (AutomotiveUI 2015):

| colocated with AutomotiveUI 2015 (         |
|                                                                      |

------------------| IMPORTANT DATES FOR THE WORKSHOP |------------------
* Submission deadline: July 20th, 2015
* Notification of acceptance: July 31st, 2015
* Camera ready version due: August 10th, 2015
* Workshop date: September 1st, 2015

Informing a driver of the vehicle’s changing state and environment is a 
major challenge that grows with the introduction of automated in-vehicle 
assistant and infotainment systems. Poorly designed systems could 
compete for the driver’s attention, away from the primary driving task. 
Thus, such systems should communicate information in a way that conveys 
its relevant urgency. While some information is unimportant and should 
never distract a driver from important tasks, there are also calls for 
action, which a driver should not be able to ignore. We believe that 
adaptive ambient displays and peripheral interaction could serve to 
unobtrusively present information while switching the driver’s attention 
when needed. This workshop will focus in promoting an exchange of best 
known methods, by discussing challenges and potentials for this kind of 
interaction in today’s scenarios as well as in future mixed or full 
autonomous traffic. The central objective of this workshop is to bring 
together researchers from different domains and discuss innovative, and 
engaging ideas and a future landscape for research in this area.

---------------------------| WORKSHOP THEMES |--------------------------
Potential topics to be discussed at the workshop include, but are not
limited to:
* Ambient interfaces in the vehicle
* Peripheral interaction in the vehicle
* Adaptive & reactive user interfaces to match the driver’s state
* Modalities for feedback, e.g. acoustical, visual, etc.
* Shifting the attention of drivers
* Support task resumption by unobtrusively triggering drivers’
   prospective memory
* Managing in-vehicle interruptions
* Types of information that can be communicated through ambient displays
* Challenges for designing and implementing ambient interfaces
     * nowadays,
     * in manual/autonomous traffic situations,
     * in a future with fully autonomous cars
* Applying ambient displays to support explicit and implicit
   communication and cooperation in mixed traffic conditions between
   drivers of non-autonomous and autonomous cars
* Optical Head Mounted Displays or Near-Eye Displays

----------------------------| PARTICIPATION |---------------------------
The goal of this workshop is to bring together people who are active in 
HCI research on adaptive or ambient in-vehicle displays. We aim to 
generate insights to new research questions in this dynamic landscape of 
ambient in-vehicle displays as well as unobtrusive and peripheral 
interaction with the display and presented information. Participants are 
expected to discuss, share, and take away beneficial insights, 
strategies, tips and tricks in dealing with issues such as attention and 
memory management, or challenges in the design of novel displays or 
interaction techniques.

Registration for the main conference is mandatory for all workshop 
participants, but there are no additional costs for attending the 
workshop beyond the main conference registration fee. While everyone can 
join the workshop, we encourage participants to submit a short position 
paper with research questions to be discussed during the workshop.

-----------------------------| SUBMISSIONS |----------------------------
Presenters are expected to submit a position paper of 1 to 4 pages 
EasyChair submission system 
( by July 20th 2015. 
All submissions must follow the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format 

Submissions need not to be anonymous. However, reviews will be done 
anonymously using an evaluation form. Each paper will receive at least 
two reviews. All accepted papers will be published online before the 
beginning of the workshop.

Presenters will be selected based on their submission through a review 
process. The review process will be conducted by a program committee 
consisting of the organizers as well as selected researchers working in 
this domain.
