Sunday 8 June, Dearborn, Michigan, USA

To be held at the 2014 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, IV'14
June 8 - 11, 2014, Deaborn Michigan, USA

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 15th, 2014

The IEEE HFIV Workshop to be collocated with the 2014 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, to be held in the Deaborn, Michigan, USA, June 8-11, 2014, will be the third edition of its series. This proposal follows up the successful events previously held in Alcalá de Henares, Spain, during IV 2012, and Gold Coast, Australia, during IV 2013.
The IEEE Workshop series on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles aims to foster discussion on issues related to the analysis of human factors in the design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles technologies, in a wide spectrum of applications and in different dimensions. It is expected to build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate interactions among the technical and scientific communities, practitioners and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be further developed and enhanced.
IV technologies have experienced a great improvement in the last couple of decades, turning vehicles into more interactive counterparts in transportation and mobility systems. However, the impact of such technologies on traffic awareness for the drivers and their behavior towards improving driving performance while reducing road accidents as well as psycho and physical exhaustion still demands proper tools and approaches. Whereas the feasibility of incorporating new technology-driven functionalities to vehicles has played a central role in the automotive design, not always safety issues related to interaction with the new in-vehicle systems have been taken into consideration. Additionally, other aspects are equally important and need to be analyzed, such as the impact technologies that support specific driving functions play on the primary task of driving the vehicle, as well as their impact on overall performance of transportation systems. Besides current industrial achievements that feature today's vehicles with a number of important driving assistance systems, the perspective of autonomous driving vehicles populating urban settings pose even more challenging issues.
Also, the information and functionalities that rely on new ways of communication have to be presented in a non-intrusive way while complying with specific design requirements. A system that guarantees efficiency of use, comfort and user satisfaction is inarguably an important contribution towards a more conscious driving behavior that directly results from the adoption of IV technologies.

The HFIV'14 welcomes and encourages contributions reporting on original research, work under development and experiments of different fields related to Human Factors.
Some topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  *   Intelligent user interfaces
  *   Human-machine interaction
  *   Human-in-the-loop simulation
  *   Cognitive aspects of driving
  *   Human behavior and capability, affecting system design and operation
  *   Modeling and simulation of driving performance
  *   Behavioral modeling and validation methodologies
  *   Tools and approaches to analyze human factors
  *   Ergonomics of traveler information systems
  *   Anthropometric layout of vehicular technical systems
  *   Mixed Reality
  *   Cross-Cultural Design
  *   Augmented Cognition
  *   User Experience and Usability
  *   Computer Aided Ergonomics Analysis
  *   Effects of in-vehicle systems on driver performance
  *   Tools and methodologies for usability assessment
  *   Input/Output modalities in system ergonomic design
  *   Leaning, Anticipation, and Adaptation balance
  *   Driving Education and Training Methodologies

Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions reporting on their current research and ideas that may potentially motivate active and fruitful discussion during the workshop. Each paper will be analyzed by the Workshop's International Program Committee according to quality of presentation, relevance and potential contributions.
Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings in a digital format and will be published in IEEE explore.

Authors must follow the IEEE Conference format in the preparation of their manuscripts
of maximum 6 pages in standard IEEE double column PDF format via the Papercept system for peer-review by the workshop International Program Committee.
All accepted papers will imply that at least one of the co-authors attends the workshop to present the work. Authors will be given a certain time to orally present their papers and discussion will be actively motivated among attendees.

Camera-ready manuscripts must be sent due on April 11th, 2014.
