International Journal of Human-Computer Studies


Special Issue on Driver-Centered Design

General Theme

In recent years, Driver Support Systems (DSS) have become commonplace in
cars. Nowadays, Intelligent Driver Support Systems (IDSS) are intended to
enhance driving by providing continuous feedback and control augmentation
instead of taking control over the driver to perform sub-tasks. In this
perspective, IDSS have to be integrated with the driver's cognitive

This evolution calls for a paradigm shift, where the design and evaluation
process is grounded on the key component of an IDSS: the driver.
Understanding and formalizing the driver's behavior, perception and
sense-making is obligatory to design intelligent vehicles that respond in
relevant ways according to the driver's perspective.

Many complementary approaches and disciplines capture knowledge of driver's
needs for technological design. They may for instance make use simulators
and statistical validation, or explore the variety of real-world situations
by using ethnographic techniques.

In this special issue, we propose to explore the foundations of a new
driver-centered design paradigm.


Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, we intend to focus on the following
* Theoretical frameworks
* Experimental setup
* Technical tools for observation and analysis
* Capturing cognitive processes and specifying contextual needs
* Acceptability of a new system
* Technology interaction and integration


Original papers presenting unpublished material related, but not restricted,
to these topics are invited for submission. Manuscripts should not exceed
8,000 words.

Important dates (may change in the future)

* Submission deadline: 1 October 2005
* Notification to authors: 15 November 2005
* Final submission: 15 December 2005
