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.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all attendees and authors for making our conference a resounding success. Your presence and contributions have truly made this event one to remember. We were delighted to see so many new faces and to hear such a wide range of thought-provoking ideas. We are already excited for next year’s conference and we hope to see you all there. We hope you enjoyed the conference and we encourage you to stay tuned for updates on next year’s event. Together, we can continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in computer science. Thank you all again for your support!
`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.
We are proud to announce our this year’s keynote speakers!
Prof. Wolfram Burgard
Wolfram Burgard is a Professor of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Technology Nuremberg. Before this, he was a Professor for Autonomous Intelligent Systems at the University of Freiburg and also Vice President for Automated Driving Technology at the Toyota Research. His areas of interest lie in artificial intelligence and mobile robots. His research mainly focuses on the development of robust and adaptive techniques for robot state estimation and control.
Dr. Dengxin Dai
Dengxin Dai is a Senior Researcher at the MPI for Informatics, heading the research group Vision for Autonomous Systems. In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Vision at ETH Zurich and has been a group leader from 2016 to 2021 working on autonomous driving. His research interests lie in autonomous driving, robust perception in adverse weather and illumination conditions, domain adaptation, sensor fusion, multi-task learning, and object recognition under limited supervision. He has been area chair of multiple major computer vision conferences (e.g. CVPR21, CVPR22, ECCV22), has organized multiple international workshops, is on the Editorial Board of IJCV, and is an ELLIS member. His team has won multiple awards including the 1st Place at Waymo Open Dataset Challenge 2022 and the 2nd Place at nuScenes Tracking Challenge 2021. He has received the Golden Owl Award at ETH Zurich in 2021 for his exceptional teaching.
Jan Lange is a Senior Defensive Security Expert at CARIAD SE, a Volkswagen Group Company. He is currently focused on building an end-to-end solution for defensive security operations spanning both the vehicle fleet and connected backend systems, bringing much needed defensive security capabilities into the automotive world. Before joining CARIAD in January 2021 he worked for 5 years in the insurance industry for Allianz Deutschland’s Incident Response and Vulnerability Management teams, one of Germany’s largest companies. Parallel to his employment at Allianz he completed his master’s degree in IT Security, focusing on memory forensics in his thesis and contributing to the Volatility memory analysis framework. He is a committed member of the Blue Team by heart and is supporting CARIAD’s vision to build the most secure mobility products.
