VISIT 2016 : The IEEE International Workshop on Vehicular Information Services for the Internet of Things
Call For Papers
The IEEE International Workshop on Vehicular Information Services for the Internet of Things (VISIT ’16)
Held in conjunction with the IEEE 84th Vehicular Technology Conference: VTC2016-Fall
18–21 September 2016, Montréal, Canada
The Internet of Things (IoT) has recently gained great attention from both academia and industry. Connecting billions of devices for communication and service provisioning shapes the main target of the IoT. Among the key enablers of IoT, smart vehicles have been promising solutions for providing on-road communication and ubiquitous information services. Equipped with high sensing, computing, and storage capabilities, along with diversified communication modules, smart vehicles have been enabled to become mobile resource providers. The real value of vehicular resources is much realized when translated into information services that put these resources into action. Expanding the smart vehicle-based services/applications beyond the intelligent transportation services requires research and development efforts to explore new service scopes, create innovative system architectures, and design enabling technologies.
The VISIT workshop is intended to create a platform for researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry in the areas of IoT and vehicular technologies, service provisioning, and ubiquitous computing to share and discuss their ideas, experiences, challenges, and practical implementations. We encourage high quality submissions addressing current challenges and proposing novel research directions. We invite technical research papers, industrial papers, position papers, and tool demonstration papers.
Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
Emerging vehicular applications and services
Intelligent transportation systems
Pervasive sensing and computing in vehicular environments
Vehicular platform, prototype, and middleware design and evaluation
Context management in ubiquitous scenarios and mobile services
Vehicular cloud applications and architectures
Data aggregation, storage, and management architectures
Sensor fusion in vehicle and IoT levels
Service and resource discovery
Participant selection and recruitment
Data delivery and routing
Inter and intra-vehicle communication
Incentive and pricing models
Mobility prediction and management
IoT heterogeneity/interoperability issues
Vehicular information-centric networks
Vehicular localization mechanisms and algorithms
Privacy and security mechanisms
Quality of information and reputation assessment
Software architecture and design for vehicle-enabled IoT
Reliability, availability, and scalability in ubiquitous vehicular services
Paper submission deadline: May 22 , 2016
Notification of acceptance: June 12, 2016
Camera-ready due: June 26, 2016
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSION
Authors are required to submit fully formatted, original papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE two-column standard conference format. All final submissions should be with a maximum paper length of 5 pages without incurring additional page charges (Up to 2 additional pages are allowed with the purchase of additional page charges in the amount of $100 USD per additional page at the time of registration and final paper submission).
Workshop content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Each accepted paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the co-authors or a third party, otherwise it will not be indexed nor archived through IEEE Xplore.
Only timely submissions through TrackChair at (https://vtc2016f-rr-wks.trackchair.com/track/1545/submit) will be considered.
