We are hosting a virtual workshop, CUI@AutoUI 2021, aims to connect the
Automotive User Interfaces (Auto-UI) and Conversational User Interfaces
(CUI) communities through discussion of their shared view of the future of
automotive conversational user interfaces. The workshop is open to anyone
interested in conversational or automotive user interfaces, with no
expectations about your expertise in either topic. We are currently
requesting expressions of interest! Submission details can be found below
and on our website:

*// KEY DATES //*
*Workshop dates*:
September 9th, 11:20 AM UTC, and September 10th, 12:10 PM UTC, 2021,
*Registration and Expressions of Interest:*
AutoUI registration dates coming soon!

The workshop aims to encourage creative consideration of optimistic and
pessimistic futures, encouraging attendees to explore the opportunities and
barriers that lie ahead through an imaginative game. Considerations of the
future will be mapped out in greater detail through the drafting of
research agendas, by which attendees will get to know each other's
expertise and networks of resources. The two day workshop, consisting of
two 90-minute sessions, will facilitate greater communication and
collaboration between these communities, connecting researchers to work
together to influence the futures they imagine in the workshop.

Some of the topics we may cover include, but are not limited to:

   - The costs and benefits of multitasking in the car.
   - Pros and cons of integrating CUIs into our vehicles.
   - Technical challenges and horizons in CUI and Automotive UI design.
   - Ethical issues and solutions surrounding the AI in CUIs and Automotive
   - The upsides and downsides of children interacting with Automotive CUIs.
   - Legal frameworks to support or suppress the use of Automotive CUIs.
   - Doors of accessibility opened or closed by Automotive CUIs.
   - Automotive CUIs for multiparty collaboration or multiparty frustration.

We invite researchers from academia and industry practitioners to express
their interest in our workshop by submitting three positive views of the
future and three negative views of the future of Automotive CUIs. To fit
the theme of our game, these views can be single sentences, expressed in
the form "Fortunately, ..." or "Unfortunately ..."

We also invite the submission of one-paragraph biographies to get to know
our participants and arrange groups to have diverse sets of interests.

Submissions of views of the future and of one paragraph biographies should
be made by email to Justin Edwards <[log in to unmask]> any time
before the beginning of the conference.
