4th International Workshop on Vehicular Networking and Intelligent Transportation systems (VENITS’18). Co-Located with the 32nd IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (IEEE AINA-2018) Cracow, Poland, May 16-18, 2018.
Over the years, we have witnessed the merging of wireless communications and transportation technologies. This excellent combination of two important fields has propelled our capabilities even further, allowing us to communicate anytime and anywhere, thereby improving the traffic safety, reducing the travel costs, and increasing our life quality tremendously.
Once the new Intelligent Transportation Systems are deployed, our roads and highways will be able to provide enhanced services to users through the combination of V2X and cellular communications, thus completely revolutionizing when and how we communicate, commute, and navigate, in the coming future.
Under such conditions, several issues remain open in the field on vehicular networking, including message dissemination in congested environments, Quality of Service (QoS), efficient and adaptive routing, MAC layer enhancements, mobility prediction, efficient handovers, and also in Intelligent Transportation Systems, such as efficient road traffic managing, optimal emergency services operation, etc.
This workshop is soliciting original technical papers addressing the main research challenges in the vehicular networking and the intelligent transportation systems area.
