                            CHI 2018 Workshop
                   Interacting with Autonomous Vehicles:
                        Learning from other Domains

                   April 21-26, 2018, Montréal, Canada

                              CALL FOR PAPERS

This workshop aims at research and designs that have been done in areas where humans interact with autonomous systems such as automated vehicles, Human-Robot-Interaction (HRI), aeronautics and space, conversational agents, and smart devices. We want to discuss what can be learnt from other domains for the design and evaluation of autonomous vehicles.

The workshop has multiple goals in order to inform HCI research and practice within autonomous vehicles:
- Provide a forum for researchers and designers of human interaction with autonomous systems with a focus on automated vehicles
- Discuss potential for transferring knowledge from other domains such as HRI and aviation to the design and evaluation of automated vehicles
- Present research on how the design of human-automated system communication can inform the design of automated vehicles (e.g., chatbots or virtual assistants such as Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, or Google Assistant)
- Discuss best practices and patterns for the design of autonomous systems and how they can be applied for the design of automated vehicles
- Envision new interaction paradigms for the driver to communicate with the automated vehicle
- Explore new designs for handover and (shared) control situations including authority sharing
- Explore engineering issues related to safety, reliability, and security properties as well as certification
- Consider UX factors relevant to the design of interactions with autonomous systems such as acceptance and trust (including complacency)
- Discuss ethical questions and asses

Position papers should cover one of the following or related topics:
- Interaction with autonomous systems
- HRI & autonomous vehicles
- Aeronautics  and space & automated driving
- Shared control and authority
- Control transition (handover & takeover)
- Mode and situation awareness
- Acceptance, trust and complacency
- Conversational agents and chatbots
- Virtual assistants (e.g., Siri, Alexa)
- Anthropomorphism
- Theories and research methods
- Interaction design and modalities
- Best practices
- Ethics

The workshop is intended for HCI researchers, practitioners, designers and developers that deal with the interaction of humans with autonomous systems (e.g., HRI, aviation, conversational agents). Workshop candidates have to submit a position paper (four pages in the CHI extended abstract format) via email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Submission should not be anonymous.

The workshop is restricted to approximately 16 participants. Applications will be selected by workshop chairs, who will evaluate position papers based on their fit with the workshop theme, their originality, and their quality. The author of an accepted submission must attend the workshop, provide a short presentation, and register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the main conference.

Workshop position papers will be made available through the workshop website. Copyright remain with the authors.
