Aims and Scope

Car-to-car (C2C) communication networks, and more generally, Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII) have now gained popularity and importance. New technical challenges have evolved that demand research and investigations. Technologies and applications for VII are rapidly emerging, and there is an urgent need to bring together researchers & engineers, academia and industry, standards, private and public sectors, to exchange ideas.

This 1-day workshop is intended to serve as a forum and bring together the researchers and engineers in both academia and industry to exchange ideas, share experiences, and report original works about all aspects of service discovery and composition in ubiquitous and pervasive environments. The main purpose is to promote discussions of research and relevant activities in the design of architectures, algorithms, and applications for inter-vehicular communication environments. This workshop will also address some leading standardization efforts (802.11p, IEEE p1609, TIA TR48, etc.). Work in progress is also welcome.

PANEL SESSION: "The Challenges of VANETS: how to evaluate the validity of new research proposals"

Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) related research is oriented towards the development of solutions to provide communication support for future Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). One key objective of VANET is to enable rapid and cost-efficient dissemination of information to increase safety and comfort of drivers and passengers. Evaluating and testing new research approaches is a crucial task, and simulation is widely used as a first step in new protocol development for VANETs. In this panel, we compare different views given by representatives from industry and the academia. We discuss and assess which tools, methodologies and procedures are appropriate for evaluation of VANET approaches.
