The gradual implementation of automated driving systems opens a wide range of opportunities for researchers and vehicle designers to transform vehicle interiors into a place for productivity and well-being. Former events held by the organizers have identified a research agenda to transform vehicles into a space for office work. This second edition of the workshop builds upon previous findings and focuses on initiating concrete research projects and fruitful cooperation between participants. In a two-session schedule tailored to fit the requirements of an online event, participants will define relevant user stories and elaborate experimental designs with measurable outcomes to contribute to the research roadmap.

Virtual Workshop

Given the constraints emerging from the virtual conference setting (lack of in-person activities, coffee breaks, dinners, etc.) we plan to use the one hour time slot provided at AutomotiveUI 2020 as "Kick-off Meeting" and accordingly proposed a two session format with an additional concluding online meeting (approximately 2.5 hours in length) held shortly after the conference. We believe this will help in a) preventing "ZOOM fatigue" by keeping the workshop short during the packed conference days, b) foster creative processes leading to more valuable results with the break between sessions, and c) producing tangible results with an extended second session.

Workshop Proposal Paper: is now available in the ACM Digital Library (Link)


Every AutomotiveUI'20 participant is invited to participate in the workshop sessions. Please make sure to register via the official conference registration system.

We also encourage every participant to submit a short introduction video of themselves. Head to Submission, Dates, Templates for more information. Suitable submissions will be listed on this homepage and all workshop participants encouraged to watch them.
