Automotive development has been dominated by the constraints of driving. However, natural relations to the more general area of Intelligent User Interfaces exist. Previous research in related fields therefore should be adopted and included. The aim of the 2011 MIAA workshop is to foster discussion between experts in otherwise unrelated fields of research. For example, a public interfaces use crossmodal referencing in order to circumvent restrictions by the users current focus on a limited communication channel. Our aim is to raise awareness for this approach, concluding that crossmodal references in the car are helpful to bridge the gap between information inside the car and the environment. Another focus topic of the workshop is eco-friendly driving. Although universally regarded as a necessity, it remains an open question how to encourage drivers to drive ecologically. We discuss for example awards for eco-friendly driving by making it competitive and game-like.
