Cognitive Load and In-Vehicle Human-Machine Interaction
Workshop at AutomotiveUI 2011<http://www.auto-ui.org/11/>
Workshop date: November 30, 2011
Submission deadline: October 17, 2011
Interactions with in-vehicle electronic devices can interfere with the primary task of driving. The concept of cognitive load helps us understand the extent to which these interactions interfere with the driving task and how this interference can be mitigated. The workshop will address cognitive load estimation and management for both driving and interactions with in-vehicle systems, and will also endeavor to provide guidance on problems, goals, hypotheses and approaches for future research in this area.
We solicit 2, 4 and 8 page research papers on topics related to cognitive load estimation and management for interactions with in-vehicle devices, and issues in developing benchmarks. Authors are encouraged to also include at least one paragraph on charting a path for future research and development. Additionally, 1-4 page position papers on charting a path for future research and development are also solicited.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Cognitive load estimation in the laboratory,
– Cognitive load estimation on the road,
– Sensing technologies for cognitive load estimation,
– Algorithms for cognitive load estimation,
– Performance measures of cognitive load,
– Physiological measures of cognitive load,
– Visual measures of cognitive load,
– Subjective measures of cognitive load,
– Methods for benchmarking cognitive load,
– Cognitive load of driving,
– Cognitive overload and cognitive underload,
– Approaches to cognitive load management inspired by human-human interactions.
