Invitation to the Final Stakeholder workshop
20-21 June, 2023

At Chalmers University of Technology
In Gothenburg, Sweden

To enable correct catering etc, we need confirmation for physical attendance by 15 May 2023. Please fill in this Microsoft Form by then.
For on-line attendees please also register through that form by the same date. We will send you the Zoom link a couple of days in advance.

Venue: Uni3 Geely Conference Center

How to go there:

From the airport in Landvetter it takes about 30 mins by taxi or approx. 50 mins by bus. You find taxis outside of the terminal.

If you decide to go by bus, please check out the flight bus schedule before departure. The information is also available outside the terminal. You should buy your ticket online and preferably in advance. It will be valid for 3 months, so we recommend buying a round trip ticket. A one-way ticket costs SEK 119 and a round ticket costs SEK 238. After 5 stops, depart at Nils Ericsson terminalen, go over to the tram/bus station Nordstan and take bus #16, 58 or X1 to Pumpgatan (2 stops). From there, it’s just ~100 m walk.

Hybrid meeting format possible

We will provide registrants that have registered for on-line participation with a link to web-meeting a few days before the event. Note, however, that the presentations and plenary sessions will be streamed, but the poster sessions not. We will also prioritize questions from the on-site audience.


  • 5 Sessions with 13 ESRs including presentations, poster, Q&A and plenary discussions
  • 3 Panel Discussions
  • 2 Site visits to REVERE and Asymptotic

Panel Discussion 1(3) – The Future of Human Factors and AI

  • What roles will AI have in AVs of the future and what are the implications for us as individuals?
  • How will AI help us in performing research in the future (in general, in human factors, in the automotive domain, and specifically for AV research)?
  • How should ethics be considered when using AI in AVs?

Background: AI is becoming ubiquitous, and it will affect both human factors researchers and AV developers in general. There are many potential applications, but also several issues. This panel is to address AVs, AI and human factors, primarily in their intersection, but also AI as a research tool in general and in human factors research.


Moderator: John Lee, University of Wisconsin

Panel Discussion 2(3): AV Standards, Regulations, Policymaking, and Legislation and their Impact on AV Human Factors

  • How do standards, regulations, policymaking and legislation (SRPL) affect AV human factors research and development? 
  • What SRPL are needed in a future with AVs? Why?
  • How does the large difference in mindset and legislation related to deployment of AV between the EU and US affect human factors aspects of AV development? 

Background: There are many things that affect how human factors are considered in AV development. The “constraints and opportunities” that standards, regulations, policymaking and legislation (as well as e.g., NCAPs) place on AVs truly impact how AVs are developed. This panel discussion covers the impact of, as well as need for, these constraints and opportunities. 


Moderator: Klaus Bengler, TU Munich

Plenary and Panel Discussion 3(3) – The time after the PhD – industry, academia and other possibilities – focus on stakeholder feedback


We look forward to welcoming you in Gothenburg!
