IEEE VNC 2023 - Call for Papers

14th IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)

April 26-28, 2023
Istanbul, Türkiye

The 2023 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) seeks to bring
together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and
discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular networking,
connected & automated driving, and other applications. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:


- Radio technologies for vehicular networks (e.g., channel
measurements, propagation models, antenna design)
- V2X communication technologies, including DSRC, C-V2X, 5G/6G, and
emerging technologies like VLC, mmWave, THz, or massive MIMO,
- Networking, transport and QoS management for vehicular networks
- In-vehicle communication and networking systems

Architecture and System Design

- Heterogeneous vehicular networking (e.g., multi-radio, multi-channel,
multi-application, multi-technology, multi-operator) and coexistence
of access technologies
- Architectures and system designs for connected automated driving
incl. cloud and edge computing and IoT integration
- Security, privacy, liability, and dependability of vehicular networks
- Integration of V2C communications with on-board systems and networks

Tools & Methods

- Platforms for simulation, emulation, prototyping, measurement,
field-trials, and real-world deployment of vehicular networks
- Optimization techniques (e.g., linear programming, machine learning)
with unique benefits for vehicular applications
- Modeling, design, and analysis of vehicular networks and applications


- Cooperative perception and cooperative driving
- Innovative vehicular network applications and their communication
- Vulnerable road user protection
- Impact assessments of vehicular networks on transportation (e.g.,
safety, efficiency, comfort, privacy, and environmental

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The Best Paper Award will be
selected and handed out by our Best Paper committee. Conference content
will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other
Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.


- January 27, 2023 (firm and final!): Paper submissions due
- February 15, 2023: Poster and Demo submissions due
- March 1, 2023: Acceptance notifications
- March 26, 2023: Camera-ready versions due
- April 26, 2023: Conference starts

Manuscript submissions

The submitted papers must be written in English and be formatted in the
standard IEEE two-column format and with a font size no less than
10-point. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format
can be found at the IEEE templates page. The submission process is not
double-blind and authors may include their names, affiliations, and
other identifying information in the submitted manuscripts. Only Adobe
PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All submissions must
be made electronically through EDAS.

Submission Types

The conference will consider four categories of submissions:

- Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are
limited in length to eight (8) printed pages including figures,
tables, and references. Papers exceeding 8 pages will be declined
automatically and will not be reviewed.

- Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on
work-in-progress without fully finished results. They are meant to
present novel perspectives, so as to foster discussions 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 will be given (a shorter) time for
oral presentation at the conference.

- Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research
directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet
fully validated through complete extensive evaluation. They are
limited to at most two (2) pages and their title must begin with

- Demonstration (demo) papers are suited for researchers to showcase
their latest prototypes with media, models, or live demonstrations.
They are limited to at most two (2) pages and their title must begin
with "Demo:".

Please note that these categories (in particular: full paper and short
paper) target different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to one
category will NOT be moved to a different category: a paper will either
be accepted in the category where it has been submitted, or it will be
rejected (in particular: 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.

Submission Process

Submitted papers must be IEEE compliant Adobe PDF files written in
English, formatted in standard IEEE two-column format with a font size
no less than 10-point. Reviewing is not double-blind, so authors may
include their names, affiliations, and other identifying information in
submitted manuscripts. Only compliant files will be accepted for review.
All submissions must be made electronically through EDAS.

Remote attendance

VNC is an in-person conference. Online presentations will only be
possible in well-argued exceptional cases (e.g., travel restrictions due
to COVID). Permission for remote attendance needs to be requested
beforehand by writing to the organizing committee, which will evaluate
requests case by case.

Authors with such granted permission will anyhow be required to attend
the conference remotely, answering questions from the audience. Failing
to comply with such rule will be considered a no-show, and will result
in the withdrawal of the paper from the conference proceedings.
