AutomotiveUI '16: The 8th International Conference on Automotive User

Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications

Ann Arbor, MI, USA - October 24-26, 2016

AutomotiveUI is the premier forum for user interface research in the automotive domain.  Attendees include researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications.  AutomotiveUI '16 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.

A workshop is a meeting to address some topic of common interest to a subset of those attending the AutomotiveUI '16 conference. Workshops will typically have a length of 4 hours either in the morning between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. or in the afternoon between 2 p.m. and 6.p.m. Upon request, workshops may also be full day (8 hours). Workshops may include hands-on activities, practice sessions, group discussions, and panel discussions.  Topics of previous workshops have included natural user interfaces, cognitive workload, and autonomous vehicles. The intent may be to develop a common understanding of research questions or methods, share different approaches to common questions, or serve other purposes. Typically, multiple people are involved in proposing workshops.  Workshops can but are not required to include solicited position papers and presentations.

A Tutorial is a session in which specific material is to be taught, either by one person or several people. It is typically a half day class (i.e. 4 hours) but can also be a full-day class (i.e. 8 hours).  An example from the past was a tutorial on automotive user interface design standards.

The topic of submissions to the workshop and tutorial category must fit into the general topics and goals of the conference. Nonetheless, the following topics are of strategic need to the AutomotiveUI community and submissions tackling these topics are especially welcome (in alphabetical order):

 - Cognitive load, distraction and attention measurement methods

 - Design Thinking and maker spaces for HMIs

 - Eye-tracking in the automotive context

 - Field studies (frameworks, methods, best-practices, international issues, ethics, etc.)

 - Introduction to automotive HMI design

 - Multi-modal HMIs (incl. speech, gesture, natural interaction)

 - Simulator studies (frameworks, methods, best-practices, scenario development, etc.)

 - Smartphone integration into the automotive eco-system (Apple CarPlay, Google Android Auto, etc.)

 - Standards, norms and guidelines for automotive user-interfaces

 - Usage and user experience aspects of autonomous driving

In addition to individuals and groups proposing workshops and tutorials on their own initiative, the workshop/tutorials chairs will be soliciting presenters.  Those with ideas for those topics should contact the workshop/tutorial chairs.


Workshop/tutorial proposals must be submitted as 4-page (maximum) manuscripts following the ACM SIGCHI 2016 format:

Proposals must contain the following:

 - Type of submission: workshop or tutorial

 - Goal and topics of the workshop and how they match the conference goals and topics

 - Outcome of the workshop/tutorial - What will be different after the workshop/tutorial?

 - Proposal for the schedule (including if it should be a half-day or full day workshop or tutorial)

 - Organizer and presenter biographies

 - Expected attendance (max. numbers of attendees are 40 for each workshop or tutorial)

 - Supported needed (furniture, power, hardware and software, etc.).

Upon proposal acceptance, organizers should set up an external web page delivering all the necessary information for interested participants.
