We apologize for any cross-postings.

Call for Position Papers
Toronto, Canada # September 22, 2018

Submissions due: July 11th, 2018

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.

The DC aims to bring  together PhD students working on topics related to
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 min. 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 PhD
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. Also in 2018, we will make the 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 Saturday
September 22, 2018, prior to the start of the main conference program.

The topics of the AutomotiveUI'18 doctoral colloquium are identical with
the main conference (

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

The  AutomotiveUI'18  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.

A number of seats at the DC  are  reserved for  recurring students. They
are welcome to submit PhD progress proposals in which they should draw a
clear picture on how previous DCs have helped to reshape their PhD work.

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 150-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 submit  your research  proposal and  biographical  sketch via the
conference management system. If you have any questions, do not hesitate
to contact us any time at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. 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
AutomotiveUI'18 website.
