2017 International Workshop on Connected Vehicles and Vehicular Networks

APRIL 21-23, 2017, Beijing, China

The 1st EAI International Conference on 5G for Future Wireless Networks



Connected vehicles and vehicular networks have been identified as a key technology for increasing road safety and transport efficiency. In recent years, vehicle infrastructure integration technology attracts a great amount of attentions, and it can also bring inestimable economic value, and will play an important role in the next generation of intelligent transportation systems and communication network development.

The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss the recent advances in the connected vehicles and vehicular networks. The related technologies, which are generally referred VCS (Vehicular Communication Systems), include vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-vehicle communications etc. They can be realized based on short- and medium-range communication as well as on cellular systems. The workshop will cover all vehicular wireless networking aspects using a variety of wireless communication techniques, such as WiFi, Zigbee, Bluetooth, DSRC, WiMAX, 3G, LTE.   The topics not only cover the design and implementation of connected vehicles and vehicular networks, but also include applications on intelligent transportation systems, vehicle control and safety systems, telematics and infotainment systems.


Topics of Interest 

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks Technology

Vehicular Wireless Medium Access Control

Routings & Protocols for Connected Vehicles

Security & Privacy Issues in Vehicle Communication Environment

Safety & non-safety applications of Connected Vehicles
