VNC 2015 - Call For Papers

7th IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference

16-18 December 2015
Kyoto, Japan

Vehicular networking and communication systems is an area of significant
importance in our increasingly connected and mobile world. Effective
vehicular connectivity techniques can significantly enhance efficiency
of travel, reduce traffic incidents and improve safety, mitigate the
impact of congestion, and overall provide a more comfortable experience.
Towards this goal, the 2015 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)
seeks to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to
present and discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular
networking technologies, and their applications.

IEEE VNC 2015 will continue the tradition from previous editions to
include a poster session to allow the authors to closely interact with,
and obtain feedback from, the conference audience on new or on-going
research contributions related to vehicular networking. Posters are
especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that
may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet fully validated
through complete extensive evaluation.

IEEE VNC 2015 will also include a demonstration session for researchers
to showcase their latest prototypes with media, models, or live
demonstrations. The demo session will be co-located with the poster
session to ensure maximum visibility and a close interaction with the
conference audience. We solicit proposals for demonstrations related to
vehicular networking, describing either mature or innovative systems and
prototypes developed for commercial use or for research purposes, from
industries as well as universities. We especially encourage demos on
validating important research issues or showcasing prototypes that
demonstrate realistic applications.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Applications of vehicular networks, including ITS
* Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications
* Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications
* Vehicle-to-X (V2X) communications (e.g., with bicyclists,
pedestrians, etc.)
* In-vehicle communications (wireless or wired)
* Radio technologies for V2X (radio resource management, propagation
models, antennas, etc.)
* Protocols for vehicular networks (MAC / link layer, routing,
mobility management, dissemination, transport, applications etc.)
* Architectures, algorithms and protocols for data dissemination,
processing, and aggregation in vehicular networks
* Security, privacy, liability, and dependability in vehicular
* Network and QoS management for vehicular networks
* Simulation and performance evaluation techniques for vehicular
* Results from experimental systems, testbeds, and pilot studies
* Impact assessments of vehicular networks on safety, transportation
efficiency, and the environment
* Communications related to electric and hybrid vehicles
* Heterogeneous networking approaches (multi-radio, multi-application)
* Integration of V2V with on-board systems and networks

Conference Venue

The conference will be hosted in Kyoto, Japan at the Hyatt Regency
Hotel. Kyoto, known as the Cultural Heart of Japan, was the imperial
capital of Japan for over a millennium and is one of the best preserved
cities in Japan. Seventeen UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites are
located in and around Kyoto, 1600 Buddhist temples, 400 Shinto shrines,
as well as countless famous gardens and palaces. At the same time, Kyoto
is very much a modern city, home to close to 1.5 million people. Kansai
International Airport is just 75 minutes out from the city center.

Manuscript submissions

All paper submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
in standard IEEE 2-column format. The mandatory IEEE template in
Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page.
Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All
submissions must be made electronically. Submission instructions will be
provided at a later time.

We will consider two different categories of papers:

Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are limited
in length to eight (8) printed pages (10-point font) including figures,
tables, and references. Papers exceeding 8 pages will not be accepted at
EDAS, nor reviewed at all.

Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on work
in progress without finished results. They are meant to present novel
perspectives, so as to foster discussion about innovative directions and
new points of view. They are limited to at most four (4) pages including
figures, tables, and references, but might in many cases be even
shorter. Accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings and
they will be given (a shorter) time for oral presentation at the
conference, with more time dedicated to discussions.

Please note that the full paper and short paper categories target
different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to a category will
not be moved to a different category: a paper will either be accepted
for the category where it has been submitted, or it will be rejected.
Full papers will not be "downgraded" to short papers. Therefore, please
be sure to carefully assess for yourself prior to submission which is
the most suitable submission category for your paper, and to make sure
that the presentation in the manuscript is well suited to the aims of
this category.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will appear
in the conference proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore
Digital Library. Please note that for every accepted contribution, at
least one person must register for the conference and present.

Poster/demo papers should be 2-page papers following standard IEEE
2-column format using 10-point font. All paper submissions must be
written in English. The title of the paper should begin with either
"Poster:" or "Demo:". Optionally, a poster paper submission can also
include an electronic copy of the poster.

A demo paper submission should include an overview of the demonstration
set-up (the inclusion of photographs of the demonstrator are encouraged)
and the results that will be showcased to the attendees. We also
encourage the authors of the demo papers to include a link to a short
2-min demonstration video for the reviewers to facilitate the evaluation
of the quality of the demonstration proposal. If a video is included, it
will be downloaded by the demo co-chairs such that it can be hosted on
our website to ensure the anonymity of the reviewers. The videos of
accepted demonstration proposals will then also be advertised on the
conference website. For all accepted demonstration proposals, the demo
co-chairs will follow up with the authors to obtain requests for
required equipment and/or facilities (power outlets, Internet
connections, table dimensions, etc.). Demonstrations may be supported by
a poster describing the general set-up of the demonstration, its
background, and the technical content to be demonstrated. The authors
should inform the demo co-chairs if an accompanying poster will be
