Call for papers

Vehicles will be soon equipped with wireless communication technologies to provide full connectivity and thus create new services for drivers and passengers, from safety to traffic management and infotainment. With this aim in mind, infrastructure-based communications are being used initially, but the real breakthrough will be represented by technologies enabling direct vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications.

To fulfil the requirements of the future challenging scenarios, where vehicle density, mobility and coverage establish the rules, the worldwide interest from research institutions and automotive industries is fostering the acceleration of standardization efforts. Hence, beside the well known and largely experimented IEEE 802.11p, the 3GPP Release 14 has started standardizing cellular vehicle-to-anything (V2X) communication, marking the roadmap for 5G vehicular networks and providing ultra-high throughput, improved reliability and ultra-low latency. In spite of these huge efforts, many issues are still under investigation due the risk and complexity of the vehicular scenario. There are a number of open issues: for example, firstly the applications that can be supported in a near or later future (such as cooperative intersection management and platooning), secondly the way information can be exchanged by vehicles and roadside units (including software defined vehicular networks and vehicular named data networking) and also the protocols and algorithms that can be used at the lower layers (including aspects related to both standardized technologies, like LTE-V2X, or new proposals, like vehicular visible light communications or mmWaves).

The topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to the following:

  • 5G technologies for the Internet of vehicles;
  • Challenging and visionary applications for upcoming vehicular networks (e.g., crowd sensing vehicular networks, high density platooning, autonomous intersection management);
  • Software defined vehicular networks;
  • Vehicular named data networking;
  • Test-beds and large scale simulations of vehicular networks (including IEEE 802.11p/ITS-G5 and LTE-V2X);
  • Heterogeneous vehicular networks, visible light vehicular networks, and millimetre wave vehicular communications;
  • Full duplex radios for vehicular networks.
All accepted papers will be published in the 13th IEEE WiMob proceedings and will be accessible via IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by DBLP.

The workshop will be held in Rome, Italy - October 9, 2017.
