                             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 

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] 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.
