CSCS 2022 Conference

Computer Science in Cars Symposium
8th December 2022.
Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt.

This is the 6th ACM COMPUTER SCIENCE IN CARS SYMPOSIUM – (CSCS 2022) is ACM’s flagship Car IT event and we welcome you to CSCS 2022.

With this conference, we would like to bring together the likes of scientists, engineers, business representatives, and everyone who shares a passion for solving the myriad of complex problems of in-vehicular technology and its application in automation, driver/vehicular safety, and driving system security. While continuous developments make way in all the mentioned areas, we need a common platform to discuss and present ground-breaking ideas in these exciting fields together. Along with the presentation of papers for research in these fields, we also present opportunities for networking amongst individuals to promote brainstorming on problems and to create new designs and solutions.

Conference Theme

`Artificial Intelligence and Security for Autonomous Vehicles` is a very important research area due to the current drive in making vehicles fully autonomous i.e without a human safety operator behind the wheel in specified operating areas of public road traffic in its regular form of operation. This means the computer will be responsible for handling the driving in certain conditions or environments making this topic very challenging and important for ensuring safe operations of driverless vehicles.

It is no secret that both, the technology and automotive giants have vested interest and large investments to make this technology commonplace. With advancements in this technology happening at so many different sources it can get hard to keep up with the state-of-the-art or what improved since the last ride. Whether it is a record-breaking achievement of the world’s first “fully autonomous” taxi service or a new algorithm for better tracking object movement at night, the place to discuss and learn would be CSCS.
