Welcome to the Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles in its 8th edition.

Paris, France

This workshop is promoted by IEEE ITS Society’s Technical Activities Committee on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (TC on Human Factors in ITS) .


As a recognition for the work of the last years, our technical activities committee on Human Factors received the award to best committee in 2018. As a thank you to the authors contributing to this important topic, we want to support 4 authors with a partial travel scholarship of $500 (USD) each. The grants will provide reimbursement to offset the cost of travel for presentation at the workshop. Preference for travel assistance will be for underrepresented groups (e.g. women or lower income countries) and ITS Society Members. Use the application form Travel Scholarship Workshop on HF (IV2019) to request support for travel support by Monday April 29 for full consideration. Email the completed proposal form to the Chair of the TC on Human Factors in ITS: cristina.olaverri-monreal@ieee.org

The workshop will take place at Mines ParisTech – PSL Research University, 60 Boulevard Saint-Michel, 75006 Paris, France on Sunday June 9, 2019.

It is the 8th edition to be co-placed with the IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, June 9 - 12, 2019.

Aim and Scope

The IEEE Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (HFIV’19) is allocated with the IEEE 30th Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, to be held in Paris, France, June 9 - 12, 2019 and it is the 8th edition of its series.

The HFIV’19 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.

Topics of Interest

Some topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Intelligent user interfaces
  • Human-machine interaction
  • Human-in-the-loop simulation
  • Cognitive aspects of driving
  • Interaction with Autonomous Vehicles
  • Human behavior and capability, affecting system’design and operation
  • Data sources, naturalistic data and synthetic data
  • Behavior Modeling, Simulation and Analysis
  • Methodologies to optimize overall system performance
  • Tools and approaches to analyze human factors
  • Ergonomics of traveler information systems
  • Anthropometric layout of vehicular technical systems
  • Mixed Reality
  • Cross-Cultural Design
  • Augmented Cognition

  • User Interfaces for Autonomous Vehicles
  • Computer Aided Ergonomics Analysis
  • Effects of in-vehicle systems on driver performance
  • Tools and methodologies for usability assessment
  • Input/Output modalities in system ergonomic design
  • Learning, Anticipation, and Adaptation balance
  • Methodologies for driver training

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’19, under the Submissions option.

    Manuscript preparation

    The 8th 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’19 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

    3. Specify the correspondent code number for the Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles.

    Reviewing process

    Each manuscript submitted to HFIV’19 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. Contributions will be reviewed according to relevance to HFIV’19, originality and novel ideas, technical soundness and quality of presentation. Given the nature and aims of the forum, undergoing projects bringing into discussion state-of-the-art and cutting-edge ideas and novel trends are highly encouraged.

    Authors of accepted papers must follow and carefully consider reviewers’ comments, guidelines, and suggestions during the preparation of their camera-ready version for inclusion in the workshop proceedings in a digital format.
