Aim of the workshop

A major challenge in the future of traffic is to understand how "socially-aware vehicles" could be making use of their social habitus, formed by any information that can be inferred from past and present social relations, social interactions, and a driver's social state when exposed to other participants in real, live traffic. The aim of this workshop - in recognition of this challenge - is to advance on a common understanding of the symbiosis between drivers, cars, and the infrastructure. The central objective of the workshop is to provoke an active debate on the adequacy of the concept of social, natural, and peripheral interaction, addressing questions such as "who can communicate what", "when", "how", and "why"? To tackle these questions, we would like to collect different, radical, innovative, versatile, and engaging works that challenge or re-imagine human interactions in the near future automobile space.
