Wireless vehicular communication systems constitute the backbone of
intelligent transportations systems (ITS). Currently, wireless
communication informs the human driver. In the future wireless
communications will influence the movement of vehicles. Automated
driving and driver assistance systems require the exchange of kinematic
information in distributed control algorithms with very short latency.
Future ITS that network automated vehicles with the goal of zero
accidents have the potential to save more than 1 Mio. human lives and
avoid 8 Mio. serious injuries worldwide every year.

Dependable wireless communications with short-latency, low outage
probability over non-stationary vehicular communication channels is a
challenging task. It involves a multi disciplinary effort including
vehicular channel measurements, characterization and modeling;
cooperative communications; and low-latency protocol design. A
dependable wireless communication framework will be essential for
vehicular ad-hoc networks, device-to-device communication links in
future 5G systems, and cyber physical systems in general.

The goal of the workshop is to solicit the development of dependable
vehicular communication systems. This workshop will bring together
academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical
challenges and recent results related to dependable vehicular

The workshop will be co-located with IEEE ICC 2015, the International
Conference on Communications (, in London, UK.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Vehicular channel measurements
- Channel characterization and modeling
- Channel estimation algorithms
- Cooperative communications for vehicular scenarios
- Signal processing techniques
- Protocols for cooperative communications
- Integration of vehicular networks in 5G systems
- Dependability aspects of channel access
- Fault tolerant protocols and error recovery
- System level simulation concepts
- Key requirements (latency, reliability) and conformance tests for DVC
- Performance bounds and optimization
- Field tests of vehicular communications
