Call For Papers

The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Vehicular Information Services for the Internet of Things (VISIT '18)

Held in conjunction with the IEEE 88th Vehicular Technology Conference: VTC2018-Fall

27–30 August 2018, Chicago, USA



The Internet of Things (IoT) has 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: June 11, 2018
Notification of acceptance: June 27, 2018
Camera-­ready submission due: July 06, 2018


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 ( will be considered.
