HCII 2019: The 1st International Conference on HCI in Mobility, Transport and Automotive Systems (MobiTAS)

The 1st International Conference on HCI in Mobility, Transport and Automotive Systems (MobiTAS) provides a scientific forum bringing together diverse, scattered and multi-layered HCI activities in the field of mobility.

The future of mobility is inter-modal, i.e. travelers may move in different travel chains using different means of transport in a single journey.

Additionally, innovative means of transport are being developed, such as electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles. In the context of these systems, new challenges arise towards increasing acceptance and improving the user experience of travellers. The MobiTAS conference addresses design and evaluation principles, methods and tools for a better mobility experience.

The Program Board comprises 20 international experts from the heterogeneous mobility sector.

In the context of MobiTAS 2019, academic, researchers and stakeholders in the field will meet for the first time to present their research in a holistic way.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Heidi Krömker, Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany
