The Fifth IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on
Smart Vehicles: Connectivity Technologies and ITS Applications
(SmartVehicles 2018)
June 12, 2018, Chania, Greece

**** Paper Submission Deadline (EXTENDED) --- March 20, 2018 ****


New wave of urbanisation, ever more stringent emission standards, and high pressure on improving the efficiency of private and public transport have made the development of more sustainable transportation systems one of the fundamental societal challenges of the next decade. Connected and increasingly automated vehicles are seen as one of the key enabling technologies for more efficient and sustainable transportation systems. To enable connected automated vehicles, it is of paramount importance to: i) design vehicular communication systems that enable road users and other actors to exchange information in real time meeting security and reliability requirements; ii) enable pervasive sensing to monitor the status of vehicles and the surroundings; iii) develop data analytics tools for processing large amounts of data generated by the transportation infrastructure; iv) develop middleware platforms for information management and sharing; and v) define appropriate interaction interfaces between drivers and vehicles. The seamless integration and convergence of vehicular communication networks, information and transportation systems, and mobile devices and networks will face a number of technical, economic and regulatory challenges.

To that end, SmartVehicles 2018 workshop will bring together academics, researchers, and industry professionals from around the world to discuss and exchange ideas on recent developments, current research challenges and future directions in the use of networking, communications, data management, and applications to realise vehicular mobility systems that are more connected, efficient, and safe.

The topics of interest for SmartVehicles 2018 include, but are not limited to:

+ Connected autonomous vehicles: cooperative perception, cooperative manoeuvring, cooperative intersections and highways, platooning
+ V2V, V2I and V2X communications (e.g. vehicle-to-pedestrians, vehicle-to-backend, vehicle-to-sign, etc.)
+ New V2X technologies: Vehicular visible light communications, LTE-V, mmWave
+ The role of 5G in enabling existing and future V2X use cases
+ Vehicular Network as a Sensor Network
+ Communications-enabled fleet management
+ Connected smart parking systems
+ Security and privacy in ITS applications
+ Data storage, management, and retrieval in vehicular networks
+ Solutions to connect vehicles to the Internet
+ Big data analytics for ITS applications
+ Integration of cloud technologies in ITS applications
+ Communications protocol design (PHY, MAC, routing, data dissemination) for connected automated driving
+ Simulation environments, experimental testbeds, field operational tests for V2X
+ Mobile (smart) device integration in vehicles and transport system
+ Collaborative mapping and localisation systems

SmartVehicles 2018 is sponsored by IEEE and IEEE Computer Society.

Manuscripts submitted for consideration should not have been already published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the consideration period. Manuscripts must be written in English, are limited to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the IEEE template format (see workshop website for detailed instructions). Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS using link

All accepted papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. There will be no separate workshop registration, as one single registration will cover both conference and workshops participation. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend and present his/her work at the workshop.

+ Submission deadline (EXTENDED): March 20, 2018
+ Acceptance notification: April 16, 2018
+ Camera-ready paper due: April 30, 2018
