Call for Participation

The Workshop on Workshop on Ethical Challenges in Mobility Automation is a one-day on-site workshop at CHI 2023 in Hamburg.

The goals of the workshop are to scope out an agenda to address research and development efforts related to ethics within CHI and related communities, always with a focus on what and how user interfaces can contribute. These are expected to comprise, among others:

  • Overall delineation of the actual scope of where ethical aspects intersect with vehicle automation technology
  • Visibility of decisions and planned outcomes of vehicle manoeuvres and actions
  • Interfaces to visualize moral components of situations and related decisions to act
  • Cultural differences between different nationalities (and potentially between subgroups within nationalities)
  • Regulatory differences between different countries or jurisdictions %nationalities (and potentially between regions within nationalities)
