  Call for Papers

  8th Workshop Automotive HMI:
  User Interface Research in the Age of New Digital Realities

  colocated with MuC 2019 (
  September 8, 2019 (9AM-5PM) | Hamburg
  SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JUNE 21, 2019 (extended)

Even though many aspects of automated  driving have not yet become true,
many  human  factors issues  have  already  been  investigated. However,
recent discussions  revealed common  misconceptions in both research and
society  about vehicle  automation and the levels  of automation levels.
This might be due to the fact that automated  driving functions are mis-
named (cf. Autopilot) and that vehicles integrate functions at different
automation levels (L1 lane keeping  assistant, L2/L3 traffic jam assist,
L4 valet parking). The user interface is one of the most critical issues
in the  interaction between  humans and vehicles - and  diverging mental
models might  be a major challenge  here. Today's (manual)  vehicles are
ill-suited for appropriate  HMI testing for automated vehicles. Instead,
virtual or mixed  reality might be a much better  playground to test new
interaction  concepts in an automated driving setting. In this workshop,
motivated  by the  conference theme, we will look  into the potential of
new digital realities  for concepts, visualizations, and  experiments in
the car, e.g. by replacing all the windows with displays or transferring
the  entire  environment into a VR world. We are  further interested  in
discussing  novel forms of  interaction (speech, gaze-based interaction,
gestures) and information displays to support the driver/passenger.

Topics of Interest
The main goal of the workshop is to discuss challenges and opportunities
in automotive user  interface research, such as mental models, misuse of
terms, intransparency, etc. that might hinder or support the application
on a broader basis. In particular, we are highly  interested in  radical
innovative ideas for future HMI research in virtual/mixed VR/MR reality.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* User interface  concepts to foster trust  and acceptance (for example,
  transparency displays) for the different levels of automation
* Futuristic (virtual/mixed reality) concepts of shared control, vehicle
  interior, and in-vehicle non-driving-related
* User experience design for automated vehicles
* Personalization of vehicle behavior and interfaces
* Approaches that support situation awareness through design

We  welcome  CONTRIBUTIONS from  both  academia  and  industry in either
GERMAN or ENGLISH language!

Submission Guidelines
Contributions are welcome in various  forms including scientific  papers
reporting  user study  results, theoretical  concept  papers, futuristic
visions or design concepts. We accept long (6-10 pages) and short papers
(2-4  pages) addressing  one or multiple of the topics  described above.
Templates  for LaTeX/Word/Overleaf (same as for the main conference) can
be  found at <>.
Papers have to be submitted on or before the submission deadline June 6,
2019 using ConfTool ( Accepted papers
will be invited for presentation at the workshop and will be included in
the MuC 2019 workshop proceedings. Accompanying videos, demonstrators of
automotive HMI systems or other media are explicitly desired.

Important Dates
* Submission deadline: June 21, 2019 (extended)
* Notification of acceptance: July 5, 2019
* Final version due: July 12, 2019
* Workshop at MuC: Sunday, September 8, 2019 (9AM-5PM)
