This workshop will be organized by a team of researchers and practitioners with different disciplinary training in (sustainable) HCI, user experience (UX), psychology, engineering, safety science, and automated driving. Many of them have been involved in organizing several workshops on topics addressing interaction with (automated) vehicles at ACM AutomotiveUI and CHI.
Shadan Sadeghian Borojeni will be the main contact person for the workshop. She is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Siegen in Germany. Her research focuses on designing multimodal interfaces in highly automated vehicles. Previously she was a researcher at OFFIS Institue for Information Technology, and Max Planck institute for biological cybernetics. She has co-organized several workshops and tutorials at AutomotiveUI’15-16-17-18 and CHI’18-19.
Alexander Meschtscherjakov is an Associate Professor at the Center for HCI of Salzburg University. His research focus on new forms of automotive user interface design, user experience with autonomous vehicles, and persuasion to foster sustainable driving behavior. He was co-organizing conferences such as AutomotiveUI’11 or Persuasive’15 and was an organizer of various workshops on automated vehicles (e.g., AutomotiveUI’13-16, CHI’15, CHI’16, CHI’18, CHI ’19).
Bastian Pfleging is Assistant Professor for Future Mobility at Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands) and postdocoral researcher at LMU Munich, Germany. Previously, he was a Deputy Professor for Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Stuttgart and visiting researcher at the BMW Technology Office in California. His special research interests are automotive user interfaces, now with a focus on non-driving-related activities, the transition towards automated driving, and novel mobility concepts. He was involved in co-organizing various workshops at AutomotiveUI and CHI and co-organized various conferences, for instance as a program chair of AutomotiveUI’17, and WIP chair in 2015 and 2016. Since 2018, he is member of the steering committee of AutomotiveUI.
Christian P. Janssen is an Assistant Professor at Utrecht University, within the division of Experimental Psychology and Helmholtz Institute. He received his PhD in human-computer interaction from UCL (2012), and MSc in Human-Computer Interaction and BSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Groningen. Some of his major research interests are in multitasking and (driver) distraction, including in automated driving settings. Methodologically, he appreciates interdisciplinary approaches, including the coupling between empirical studies and formal models of human behavior and thought. Christian was a General Chair of the AutomotiveUI 2019.
Andrew L. Kun is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Hampshire. His research focus is human-computer interaction in vehicles, including speech interaction, and the use of visual behavior and pupil diameter measures to assess and improve UI design. He served as the General Chair of the 2012 AutomotiveUI conference.
Andreas Riener is a Professor for HMI and VR at THI with co-appointment at driving safety research center CARISSMA. At THI, he is heading an interdisciplinary research team. His research focus is on user experience of automated driving and human factors in driver-vehicle interaction, for example (over)trust, acceptance, and ethical issues in automated driving. He has already worked on concepts to improve fuel economy/efficiency of road transport, e. g., with gamification, ranking list or incentives.
Wendy Ju is an Assistant Professor of Information Science at Cornell Tech in New York City. Her research focuses on interaction with automation, particularly human-robot interactions and automated vehicle interfaces, and novel research methods to understand interaction with autonomy.
Philipp Wintersberger is a researcher at the research center CARISSMA/THI and obtained his diploma in Computer Science from Johannes Kepler University Linz specializing in Human-Computer-Interaction and Computer Vision. Currently, he conducts research in the area of Human Factors and Driving Ergonomics, focusing on Trust in Automation, Intelligent/Attentive User Interfaces, and Augmented/Virtual Reality.
Birsen Donmez is an Associate Professor of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto, and is the Canada Research Chair in Human Factors and Transportation. Her research focuses on driver automation interaction. She was the General Chair for AutomotiveUI’18.
Christian Remy is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Digital Creativity at Aarhus University, Denmark. His work and interests focus around a broad range of topics in HCI and Ubicomp, including sustainable HCI, creativity support tools, and issues of evaluating HCI research. He co-organised a SIG on the future of HCI and sustainability in 2018 and is sustainability co-chair of CHI 2020.
