We apologize for any cross-postings.

Please circulate in your lab and motivate PhD candidates to submit their

Call for Position Papers    
Nottingham, UK # September 1-3, 2015

Submissions due: July 13th, 2015

After its inauguration in 2013 in  Eindhoven,  the  doctoral  colloquium
has meanwhile become an inherent  part  of the  AutomotiveUI  conference
series. The DC aims at bringing together PhD students working  on topics
related  to  the field  of automotive  user  interfaces  and interactive
vehicular  applications,  offering  them  an opportunity  to present and
discuss their research to an audience of peers and  senior  faculty. PhD
students will receive  feedback from  their peers about the appropriate-
ness of their idea/topic/research  approach,  and  will enjoy discussing
their research  with senior  members of the community. The DC  will take
place  on Tuesday,  September 1st  2015, prior to the  start of the main
conference program. 

The topics of the AutomotiveUI'15 doctoral colloquium are  basically the
ones of the main  conference  (full  list:

1) Devices & Interfaces for vehicle  operation  
2) Automated/cooperative driving & Instrumentation  
3)  Evaluation & Benchmarking (Simulation, FOT, Naturalistic Studies)
4) Driver Performance & Behavior (Emotions, Intention, Distraction,...)

The AutomotiveUI 2015 doctoral  colloquium  welcomes  contributions from
doctoral  students  currently  registered    in  a  PhD   program. Ideal
candidates should have worked on their  dissertation  for  some  months;
thus, they should have chosen a research topic  and  possibly  have also
selected  theoretical  and  methodological    approaches.   Selection of
participants will be based  on the  quality  of the  submission  and its
relevance to the conference topics of interest.

We are planning to provide travel grants to allow more students  to take
part in the DC; however, at this early time we cannot  guarantee  at all
that we will finally be able to provide travel grants. More  information
on request.

Submissions  must be  single-author,  but the  name  of  the  supervisor
should also be mentioned in the paper. The conversation language  of the
colloquium  is English  and  all  submitted  materials  must  be also in
English. Research students wishing to apply for the DC should  submit up
to 5 pages including figures, references, and a 100 word  abstract using
the  format  of  the  main  conference.  Each  submitted  paper  will be
reviewed by the members of the doctoral  colloquium  program  committee.

The position statement should:  
+ give a crisp introduction to the field/problem domain,
+ present  key  related  work (current  status of the problem domain and
  related solutions),
+ clearly formulate the research question/approach,
+ point out significance and innovation (expected contributions),
+ describe the research methodology that is applied or planned,
+ outline your  contribution to  the  problem  domain and  highlight the
  uniqueness of your approach,
+ pose questions and issues (that you'd like to discuss at the DC)

In addition, a one page biographical sketch (CV)  should  be  submitted,
including a paragraph stating what you hope to get out of  participating
in the DC.

Please send applications (position  statement,  biographical  sketch) as
soon as possible but no later than July 13th, 2015  to  Andreas  Riener,
Doctoral Colloquium Chair  at  <[log in to unmask]>.  Should  you have
any questions don't hesitate to contact me any time (at  the  same Email
