Call for Position Papers


VIRTUAL MEETING of 3 hours on one day in September 9-11, 2021 (TBA)

Submissions due: July 2nd, 2021 AoE



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.

*** WHEN AND HOW? ***

The  AutomotiveUI'21 doctoral  colloquium (DC) will be held as a virtual

meeting on one day between September 9 and 14.

The DC is by invitation  only. Those invited to present their PhD

project  or review  presentations are  permitted to attend  the doctoral

colloquium to comply with confidentiality constraints.


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 participant  will be allocated a dedicated  time slot, split into a

presentation  part and a feedback part with oral feedback by at least

three senior  faculty or researchers. The presentation  will not be open

to the public to encourage interaction with only the session organizer,

reviewers, and other student DC presenters  in attendance. Reviewer

feedback will cover all aspects of the  proposal (e.g., choice of topic,

how it  is investigated). Students are expected to attend all other

presentations in their session, take  notes  for their peers, and provide

those notes to other students  in their  session. We will try to make the

DC a rich experience for  participants by also (1) connecting  PhD students

before the conference, and (2) using  technology during the meeting to

document suggestions/comments from  reviewers (e.g., video recording of

sessions, documentation in Google Docs, etc.).

The topics of the AutomotiveUI'21 doctoral colloquium are identical with

the main conference (


The  AutomotiveUI'21  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 4

pages (including figures, references, and a 150-word abstract) using the

publication format of the main conference (SIGCHI template, 2-column).

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

PCS conference management system (
