    Aim & Scope

    Vehicular communication systems have increased in popularity and importance in recent years. New research challenges have emerged. Much research remains to be done to bring to fruition the vision of future intelligent vehicular communications applications, which will be supported by vehicular networks. Suitable consumer technologies will be needed to enable drivers to exploit the advantages of next-generation intelligent transport systems. Even as the networks and applications are still in the R&D phase, the consumer communications aspects of vehicular communications are growing in importance too. Ultimately it will be the consumers (namely, the car drivers and passengers) that will determine the success and acceptance of vehicular communications systems.

    This workshop serves as a leading forum to bring together the researchers and engineers in both academia and industry to exchange ideas, share experiences, and report original work about all aspects of car consumer telematics, communications, networking, security and services. The main purpose is to promote discussions of research and relevant activities in the design of architectures, algorithms, and applications for intelligent vehicular communication environments. This workshop will also addresssome leading standardization efforts (802.11p, p1609, TIA TR48, etc.).

    Key industrial players (GM, Toyota, Telcordia, BMW, etc.) will be represented at this workshop.

    IEEE IVCS 2010 welcomes original papers in the following areas:

    • User interface and other consumer aspects of vehicular communications
    • ITS car-2-car networks
    • ITS car-2-roadside communications
    • MAC, routing, QoS, addressing, multicast, TCP protocols
    • Congestion Control and Cooperative VANETs
    • New application scenarios of ITS vehicular networks
    • Mobility and handoff issues
    • Sensors & Data Collection
    • Content Distribution
    • C2C communications
    • Intra-car communications
    • Traffic and flow control issues
    • Info Dissemination; Data organization
    • Security issues, architectures and solutions
    • Privacy issues and solutions
    • Data replication protocols in network partitions
    • Different technologies (DSRC, WiMAX, WiFi, 3G/4G, cell phone)
    • Application innovation
    • 802.11p WAVE ; 802.11s MESH; DSRC
    • Implementation/deployment status
    • Network Management for C2C

    Guidelines for Submission
    Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. The paper should be used as the basis for a 20 - 30 minute workshop presentation.

    Manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column) and not exceed 5 pages in length. Submission of papers should be regarded as a commitment such that, if accepted, at least one author of the paper will register and attend the conference; otherwise it will be removed from the IEEE Digital Library after the conference.

    • Papers should be submitted in a .pdf or .ps format via EDAS <http://www.edas.info/> paper submission website. Please us the workshop submission link for paper submission.
    • A separate cover sheet should show the title of the paper, the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail, telephone, and fax) to which the correspondence should be sent.
