Call for Position Papers
Oldenburg, Germany # September 24-27, 2017

Submissions due: July 11th, 2017

1. To improve research in the field of automotive user  interfaces UI by
   providing PhD students with feedback on proposed dissertations.
2. To  provide  opportunities for  PhD  students to  network  with peers
   & facilitate  professional development by sharing research interests.

*** WHAT IS IT? ***
The DC brings  together PhD students  working  on topics related  to the
automotive  user  interfaces  and  interactive  vehicular  applications,
providing  them  with  an  opportunity  to  present  and  discuss  their
research with their peers and senior faculty.
Each student will be allocated a 45-minute time slot, with 15 minutes for
a presentation and 30 minutes  for oral feedback by at least three senior
faculty  or researchers. The  presentation will be  intimate to encourage
interaction, with only the session organizer, reviewers and other student
DC presenters in  attendance. Reviewer feedback will cover all aspects of
their  proposal (the  choice of  topic, how it  is to be examined, etc.).
Students are  expected to attend all presentations in their session, take
notes for their peers, and provide those notes to other students in their
session. This year, we will  make the 2017  DC a richer experience by (1)
connecting  PhD  students  before  the  conference, (2) using  technology
during  the DC to  document  suggestions/comments from reviewers, and (3)
organizing  on-site networking  events. The DC will take place on Sunday,
September 24, 2017, prior to the start of the main conference program.

The topics of the AutomotiveUI'17 doctoral  colloquium are identical with
the main conference (full list:

1) Devices & Interfaces for Vehicle Operation
2) Automation & Instrumentation (Automated Driving, Assistive Technology)
3) Evaluation & Benchmarking (Simulation, FOT, Naturalistic Studies)
4) Driver Performance & Behavior (Emotions, Intention, Distraction,...)

The AutomotiveUI 2017 doctoral  colloquium  welcomes  contributions from
doctoral  students  currently  registered    in  a  PhD   program. Ideal
candidates should have worked on their  dissertation  for  some  months;
they should have chosen a research topic  and  possibly  have  also made
progress in  identifying the relevant theories and their  research plan.
Selection of participants will be based on the quality of the submission
and its  relevance to the  conference  topics, as well as the likelihood
of DC benefit to the participant.

Submissions  must be  single-author,  but the  name  of  the  supervisor
must be  mentioned in the submission. The  conversation language  of the
colloquium  is English  and  all  submissions  must  be also in English.
To apply to the DC, describe your proposed dissertation topic in up to 5
pages (including figures, references, and a 100 word abstract) using the
publication format of the main conference.

The research proposal should:
+ give a crisp introduction to the field/problem domain,
+ present  key  related  work (current  status of the problem domain and
  related solutions, applicable norms/standards),
+ clearly formulate the research questions/approaches [Hint:  Presenting
  those  questions as who, what, when, where, and why questions is often
+ point out significance and innovation (expected contributions),
+ describe the research method that is planned or has been applied,
+ outline your  contribution to  the  problem  domain and  highlight the
  uniqueness of your approach,
+ pose questions and issues (that you would like to discuss at the DC)

In  addition, submit a one-page  biographical  sketch (CV), including  a
paragraph stating what  you hope to get out of  participating in the DC.

Please  send  submissions (research  proposal,  biographical  sketch) as
soon as  possible but no later than Tue, July 11th, 2017 to the doctoral
colloquium  co-chairs  at <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>>. If  you  have  any
questions, do  not hesitate to  contact us  any time (at the same  Email
address). Submissions  will be  reviewed by the  international  doctoral
colloquium program committee.

We are  seeking to  provide travel grants to allow more students to take
part in the DC. However, at this  early time we cannot guarantee we will
finally be  able to provide  funding.  Updates  will be  provided on the
AutoUI website.
