Call For Papers

2018 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)
December 5-7, 2018
Taipei, Taiwan

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.


The 2018 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) seeks to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular networking technologies, and their applications. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

5G technologies for connected vehicles
New V2X technologies: Cellular V2X (C-V2X), Vehicular visible light communications (VLC), TV White Spaces (TVWS), etc.
Millimeter wave (mmWave) for V2X communication
Communications and networking for automated and semi-automated vehicles: cooperative perception, cooperative maneuvering, cooperative intersections and highways, platooning
Congestion and awareness control in vehicular networks
Safety and non-safety applications of vehicular networks, including ITS
V2V, V2I and V2X communications and networking protocols
Vehicular communications with VRUs (Vulnerable Road Users) e.g., with bicyclists, pedestrians, etc.
Collaborative mapping and localization systems
Connected smart parking systems
In-vehicle communications (wireless or wired)
Radio propagation aspects of vehicular networks: channel measurements, propagation models, antenna design, etc.
Protocols for vehicular networking (radio resource management, link layer, routing, mobility management, dissemination, transport etc.)
Security, privacy, liability, and dependability in vehicular networks
Network and QoS management for vehicular networks
Simulation and performance evaluation techniques for vehicular networks
Results from experimental systems, testbeds, and pilot studies
Impact assessments of vehicular networks on safety, transportation efficiency, and the environment
Communications related to electric and hybrid vehicles
Heterogeneous networking approaches (multi-radio, multi-channel, multi-application, multi-technology)
Integration of V2V with on-board systems and networks
Vehicular networking architectures and system design
Applications and services to enhance driver experience, performance, and behavior
V2X and IoT Integration
V2X-based big data applications and services
Machine-learning techniques for efficient V2X communications
Cooperative driving

Instructions for paper submission

All paper submissions must be written in English and must be formatted in standard IEEE 2-column format. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page. Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All submissions must be made electronically through EDAS.

We will consider three different categories of papers:

Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are limited in length to eight (8) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, tables, and references. Papers exceeding 8 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor reviewed at all.
Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on work in progress without finished results. They are meant to present novel perspectives, so as to foster discussion about innovative directions and new points of view. They are limited to at most four (4) pages including figures, tables, and references, but might in many cases be even shorter. Accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings and there will be given (a shorter) time for oral presentation at the conference.

Please note that the full paper and short paper categories target different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to a category will NOT be moved to a different category: a paper will either be accepted for the category where it has been submitted, or it will be rejected. Full papers will not be “downgraded” to short papers. Therefore, please be sure to carefully assess for yourself prior to submission which is the most suitable submission category for your paper, and to make sure that the presentation in the manuscript is well suited to the aims of this category.

Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet fully validated through complete extensive evaluation. IEEE VNC 2018 will also include a demonstration session for researchers to showcase their latest prototypes with media, models, or live demonstrations. The demo session will be co-located with the poster session to ensure maximum visibility and a close interaction with the conference audience.

We also encourage the authors of the demo papers to include a link to a short 2-min demonstration video for the reviewers to facilitate the evaluation of the quality of the demonstration proposal. If a video is included, we ask that it be hosted on public video hosting service (e.g., Vimeo, YouTube, or similar) to ensure the anonymity of the reviewers. The videos of accepted demonstration proposals will be advertised on the conference website.

Poster/demo papers should be 2-page papers following standard IEEE 2-column format using 10-point font. All paper submissions must be written in English. The title of the paper should begin with either "Poster:" or "Demo:". Optionally, a poster paper submission can also include an electronic copy of the poster.
