Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The overall goal of this Special Issue is to explore and evaluate automotive user interfaces, interaction design, and user experience. It targets original and scientifically-grounded research, as well as design-oriented research undertaken in the automotive realm.
This Special Issue is focused on novel multimodal technologies and interactions, such as rich touch, gesture and speech interaction, Augmented Reality (AR) and Head-Up Displays (HUD) applications, etc. In a time of automation, we are also interested in new interaction approaches with Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) and more broadly the interaction with automated vehicles inside and outside. Approaches to study driver distraction and engagement, design for trust and ethics in automotive research are welcomed. Work on multimodal user interfaces in special vehicles, such as trucks or electric vehicles is appreciated.
Submissions can include empirical and theoretical research, or be more interaction design focused, ranging from thought-provoking theory and novel methods, creative interaction concepts and innovative prototypes, to laboratory and (naturalistic) field studies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Multimodal Technologies and Interaction is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
