| AutomotiveUI ‘17: The 9th International ACM Conference on
| Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications
| Oldenburg, Germany, September 24 - 27, 2017

| Author information:

Important Dates
Submission deadline: July 11, 2017
Decision notification: July 31, 2017
Camera-ready paper due: August 11, 2017

We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit Works-in-Progress 
as they
provide a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting useful
feedback on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and collaborations
among colleagues. Accepted submissions will be presented as a physical 
at the conference and made available to the AutomotiveUI community 
through the
Adjunct Proceedings as an extended abstract (up to 4 pages, references 
do not
count towards this limit), which is accompanied by poster version in PDF 

Description – AutomotiveUI
AutomotiveUI, the International ACM Conference on Automotive User Interfaces
and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research
in the automotive domain. AutomotiveUI brings together researchers and
practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of
in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. Consistent with prior
conferences, AutomotiveUI’17 will address novel in-vehicle services, 
models of
and concepts for enhancing the driver experience, driver performance and
behavior, development of (semi-) autonomous driving, and the needs of
different user groups.

Description – Work-in-Progress
A Work-in-Progress is a concise report of late-breaking findings or other
types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant for the AutomotiveUI

The difference between Works-in-Progress and other contribution types (e.g.
main track papers and notes) is that a Work-in-Progress submission 
work that has not yet reached a level of completion that would warrant the
full refereed selection process. That said, appropriate submissions should
make a contribution to the body of AutomotiveUI knowledge, whether 
realized or
promised. A significant benefit of a Work-in-Progress derives from the
discussion between the author and conference attendees that will be fostered
by the face-to-face presentation of the work. To enrich the quality of the
submission for both categories, we also encourage authors to submit a 
video of
their work as supplementary material.

The Work-in-Progress category aims to attract participation from a broad 
of disciplines covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies. We encourage
submissions from all AutomotiveUI communities.
Please note that summaries of completed work or reduced versions of main 
AutomotiveUI submissions are inappropriate as a Work-in-Progress.
Work-in-Progress abstracts appear in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct 
Proceedings. The
authors retain copyright, and the material from them can be used as the 
for future publications as long as there are significant revisions from the

Your submissions consist of two related documents:
1. An up to four page extended abstract prepared in the CHI Extended 
    Format (Template: and
    submitted as a PDF file. Your poster abstract should be close to
    camera-ready. Work-in-Progress submissions must be anonymous.
    Please note: Any submission longer than 4 pages (not counting 
    and/or not adhering to the Extended Abstracts Format will be 
    rejected. Submitted versions for review process must not include page
2. An electronic version of the poster that you will present at the
    conference. For the review process, your poster should be reduced to one
    standard page in size and submitted as a PDF file. Please note that the
    physical posters presented at the conference may not be larger than 
A0 size
    in portrait format. If your submission is accepted, you must bring a
    printed copy to the conference.

Due to the short selection cycle, there should be very, very few changes
between your submissions and the camera-ready final documents, except in
rare circumstances.

Both the Extended Abstract and the poster should communicate:
1. A concise description of the work
2. Implications of the work for the AutomotiveUI community
3. Recommendations for further investigation and/or incorporation into 

Your extended abstract should be submitted by July 11, 2017 to the 
System ( and be prepared according to
the requirements stated above.
