Aim and Scope

The IEEE Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (HFIV’18) is allocated with the IEEE 29th Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, to be held in Changshu, Suzhou, China, June 26 - 30, 2018 and it is the 7th edition of its series.

The HFIV’18 welcomes and encourages contributions reporting on original research, work under development and experiments of different fields related to Human Factors.

It aims to foster discussion on issues related to the analysis of human factors in the design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles technologies, in a wide spectrum of applications and in different dimensions. It is expected to build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate interactions among the technical and scientific communities, practitioners and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be further developed and enhanced.

Intelligent vehicles (IV) technologies have experienced a great improvement in the last couple of decades, turning vehicles into more interactive counterparts in transportation and mobility systems. However, analyzing the impact of such technologies on traffic awareness for the drivers and their behavior towards improving driving performance while reducing road accidents as well as psycho and physical exhaustion still demands proper tools and approaches.

Whereas the feasibility of incorporating new technology-driven functionalities to vehicles has played a central role in the automotive design, not always safety issues related to interaction with the new in-vehicle systems have been taken into consideration. Additionally, other aspects are equally important and need to be accounted for, such as the impact technologies that support specific driving functions play on the primary task of driving the vehicle, as well as their impact on overall performance of transportation systems. Besides current industrial achievements that feature today’s vehicles with a number of important driving assistance systems, the perspective of autonomous driving vehicles populating urban settings pose even more challenging issues.

Also, the information and functionalities that rely on new ways of communication have to be presented in a non-intrusive way while complying with specific design requirements. A system that guarantees efficiency of use, comfort and user satisfaction is inarguably an important contribution towards a more conscious driving behavior that directly results from the adoption of IV technologies.

Paper Submission and Publication

Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions reporting on their current research and ideas that motivate discussion during the workshop. Each paper will be analyzed by an International Program Committee according to quality of presentation, relevance and potential contribution.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors must follow the IEEE Conference format in the preparation of their manuscripts of maximum 6 pages in standard IEEE double column PDF format and submit them through the conference submission system for peer-review by the International Program Committee. All accepted papers will imply that at least one of the co-authors attends the workshop to present the work. Authors will be given a certain time to orally present their papers and discussion will be actively motivated among attendees.

Detailed submission instructions can be found on the Workshop Web site at HFIV’18, under the Submissions option.

    Manuscript preparation

    The 7th HFIV Workshop welcomes contributions within the scope and topics of the forum. While preparing your manuscript, please do follow the same formatting guidelines specified by IEEE IV’18 main conference standard IEEE double column PDF of maximum 6 pages. Further, due to space constraints on the proceedings of the conference, all papers are limited to 2 MB and should preferably be less than 500 kB.

    For the final version of the papers, please use Word or Latex templates and submit the pdf file through the Papercept tool.

    Further details on formatting, frequently asked questions and templates are available on the Conference Web Site.

    Manuscript submission

    Contributions must be electronically submitted in PDF files only, via the conference submission system for peer-review by the International Program Committee.

    Please, to upload your paper follow the procedure below:

    1. Log into the Papercept tool.

    2. Select the Workshop Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles or the Workshop on Human- Machine Interface in Intelligent Vehicles

    3. Specify the correspondent code number for the Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles: d114h or 9wf53 respectively.

    Reviewing process

    Each manuscript submitted to HFIV’18 will undergo a peer-reviewing process by at least three members of the International Programme Committee to ensure accepted papers will be of great interest and motivate an open and broad discussion among the audience.
