3rd ACM Computer Science in Cars Symposium (CSCS 2019)

Conference Proceedings Conference Program Keynote Speakers Conference Comittee




Industry, as well as academia, have made great advances working towards an overall vision of fully autonomous driving. Despite the success stories, great challenges still lie ahead of us to make this grand vision come true. On the one hand, future systems have to be yet more capable to perceive, reason and act in complex real-world scenarios. On the other hand, these future systems have to comply with our expectations for robustness, security, and safety.  ACM, as the world’s largest computing society, addresses these challenges with the ACM Computer Science in Cars Symposium. This conference provides a platform for industry and academia to exchange ideas and meet these future challenges jointly. The focus of the 2019 conference lies on AI & Security for Autonomous Vehicles. Contributions centered on these topics are invited.


Submission of contributions are invited in (but not limited to) the follow key areas:
