AutomotiveUI, the International ACM Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. AutomotiveUI brings together researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. Consistent with prior conferences, AutomotiveUI’18 will address novel in-vehicle services, models of and concepts for enhancing the driver experience, driver performance and behavior, development of (semi-) autonomous driving, and the needs of different user groups.

AutomotiveUI’18 invites you to submit original work in one or more of the following formats: papers, workshops, works in progress, interactive demos, video sessions, and doctoral colloquium.


Papers: AutomotiveUI Papers are archival publications of original research. Authors are invited to submit papers (6-10 pages) formatted in accordance with the two-column ACM SIGCHI format, with a 150-word abstract (references do not count towards the page limit). Submissions will be accepted through the Precision Conference submission system (

Authors are encouraged to submit an accompanying video. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. We are also planning a journal special issue; details forthcoming. Further instructions about this submission category can be found at

Work In Progress: A Work In Progress is a concise report of late-breaking findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant for the AutomotiveUI community. All accepted Work in Progress submissions will be available in the ACM Digital Library.  Details about this submission category can be found at:

Workshops and Tutorials: Workshops address some topic of common interest to a subset of those attending the AutomotiveUI conference. Tutorials teach specific materials either by one person or several people. Submission details will be published at

Interactive Demos: Interactive Demos are presentations or demonstrations that highlight and foster discussion of current research and development in the area of automotive user interfaces and interactive vehicular applications. We encourage submissions from both the industry and the academia. For Interactive Demos, bring and/or present prototypes, services, devices, and systems for hands-on interaction. All accepted Demo submissions will be available in the ACM digital library. Submission details will be published at

Videos: AutomotiveUI also invites video submissions. The video submissions can focus on the presentation of research systems, visions of the future, humorous parodies or thoughtful critiques of AutomotiveUI, and reports on ethnographic work or user studies. Submission details will be published at

The Doctoral Colloquium: The Doctoral Colloquium brings together Ph.D. students working on topics related to the field of automotive user interfaces and interactive vehicular applications, providing them with an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their peers and senior faculty. Submission details will be published at

CONFERENCE TOPICS include, but are not limited to:

Devices & Interfaces:

Multi-modal, speech, audio, gestural, natural input/output
In-car gaming, entertainment and social experiences
