VNA 2015 : Vehicular Networks Applications: From Physical Layer to Clouds
Call For Papers
Vehicular Network Applications: From Physical Layer to Clouds
IEEE ITSC 2015 workshops, Spain
VNA webpage: http://educ.jmu.edu/~eltawass/VNA15
The workshop on Vehicular Networks Applications (VNA), is to discuss the issues concerning
building applications on Vehicular Networks. Due to the recent decision by the U.S. National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to move forward with vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V)
communications technology for light vehicles, vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET) applications
will receive more attention. Further, the new communications capability to be required in vehicles
will provide the potential for significantly more smart vehicles application development.
The workshop on Vehicular Networks Applications: From Physical to Cloud (VNA 2015) will
bring together researchers on VANETs to present and discuss recent advances in the development
of applications and related technologies. The workshop will cover all theoretical and practical
aspects related to applications, modeling, simulation and testbeds.
The workshop will cover VANET applications and related topics, including but not limited to:
• Algorithms and protocols supporting application in VANETs
• Traffic safety and efficiency applications
• Telematics applications
• Electric and hybrid vehicle applications
• City traffic applications
• Highways applications
• Environmental applications in VANETs
• Security and privacy issues of VANETs applications
• Communications protocol design
• Vehicle-to-vehicle/infrastructure communication
• Vehicular clouds
• Cross-layer design for VANET applications
• Experiences/lessons from recent testbed deployments and measurements
