Aims and Scope

Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII) has been growing rapidly in importance in the past few years. Even despite the global economic downturn that has hit the car industry hard, research continues in this area, as new technical challenges have evolved that demand research and development. Industry players like the automobile companies, and government agencies, like the US Department of Transportation, are investing heavily in research and development in VII. Technologies and applications for VII are rapidly emerging, and there is an critical need to bring together researchers & engineers, academia and industry, standards, private and public sectors, to exchange ideas.

This 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 work about all aspects of vehicular communications, VANETs, information dissemination, road safety, ITS, emergency services, etc.. 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, p1609, TIA TR48, etc.). Work in progress is also welcome.

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

Workshop Schedule

The workshop will take place in room Room 1-63 on Thursday 27th of May in the afternoon. The schedule is:

14.00, 1st session:
  • Wireless traffic safety network for combined vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications
  • On predicting and compressing vehicular GPS traces
  • Co-existence of Network and Terminal Mobility in the Context of TCP Performance
15:30: break
16:00, 2nd session:
  • Field Test and Performance Improvement in IEEE 802.11p V2R/R2V Environments
  • Evaluating the usefulness of watchdogs for intrusion detection in VANETs
  • Multi-Layer Performance Evaluation of a Content Delivery Framework for Urban Vehicular Networks
Please note that each author will have 20 minutes to present his/her work plus 5 minutes for questions.
