Call: 2nd Workshop on Augmented Reality for Intelligent Vehicles (with AutoUI 2018)


2nd Workshop on Augmented Reality for Intelligent Vehicles
colocated with AutoUI 2018 (
September 23, 2018
Toronto, Canada

Submission deadline: August 6, 2018

Augmented reality (AR) has the potential to improve road safety, support more immersive (non-) driving related activities, and finally enhance driving experience. AR may also be the enabling technology to help on the transition towards automated driving. However, augmented reality still faces a number of technical challenges when applied in vehicles, and also several human factors issues need to be solved. In this workshop, we will discuss potential and constraints as well as impact, role, and, adequacy of AR in driving applications. The primary goal of this workshop is to define a research agenda for the use of AR in intelligent vehicles within the next 3 to 5 years.

In this workshop, we will discuss and exchange ideas for solutions in the 4 problem fields (i) Computational issues, (ii) Perception issues, (iii) Physical issues, and (iv) Cognitive issues.

Goal 1: Discuss practical usage:

First, we aim to exchange ideas on the practical usage of AR devices in exploring augmented reality for vehicles. We invite experts to present their experiences with, and reflections on, using AR, and relate these experiences and reflections to use in or around vehicles. Specifically, we are interested in relating practical experiences to the next two goals of the workshop.

Goal 2: Identify challenges and hypotheses:

Second, we aim to outline a set of research challenges, for the coming 3 to 5 years, to provide reflections about these challenges, and to support these challenges with a set of hypotheses.

Goal 3: Chart research roadmap:

Finally, we aim to propose a roadmap to tackle the challenges and test some of the hypotheses. The final goal of this workshop is to provide an avenue for researchers exploring human-machine interaction in and around vehicles to exchange ideas related to the use of AR in their work, and to start charting a path towards productive collaboration in the field.


The target audience for this workshop are researchers and practitioners in the AutoUI/HCI community, who are interested to bring forward the field of AR in driving applications. We invite researchers interested in this workshop to submit (short) reflection statements per Email to the workshop organizers.

Submissions for the workshop (not anonymous, i.e. including author names and affiliations) should be compiled using the CHI extended abstracts (EA) format. We encourage participants to submit 1-2 page reflection statements contributing to one or more of the workshop goals- see above. Successful submissions will have the potential to raise discussion, provide insights for other attendees, or illustrate problems and provide potential solutions.

We invite 1-2 page (CHI EA format) reflection statements. Submission deadline is August 6, 2018.

In addition, we invite all AutoUI/HCI researchers and practitioners to indicate their general interest on the workshop by dropping us an email at This way, we’ll have the chance to reach out to an even greater community and share results and discuss our ideas, problems, and challenges.
