Vehicle to Vehicle -- Vehicle to Roadside -- Vehicle to Internet

The Seventh ACM International Workshop on VehiculAr Inter-NETworking

In conjunction with ACM MobiCom 2010
Date: To be announced
Chicago, USA

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE (approval pending)

Important Dates (tentative):
Paper Submission Deadline: April 23rd April 30th *extended*
Notification of Acceptance: June 25th
Camera-Ready Deadline: July 15th

The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss recent advances in the development of vehicular inter-networking (VANET) technologies. Apart from new and original technical research results, this year we welcome papers on organizational and economic models. Based on short- and medium-range communication as well as on cellular systems, vehicular inter-networking will enable vehicular safety applications (including collision avoidance and safety warnings), efficiency applications (e.g.real-time traffic congestion and routing information) and other commercial or public authority applications (high-speed tolling, mobile infotainment, and many others).

The creation of high-performance, highly reliable, highly scalable, secure, and privacy-preserving VANET technologies presents an extraordinary challenge for the wireless research community. Clearly, the specificity of vehicular inter-networking in terms of mobility behavior, applications scenarios, and application requirements makes VANET research an exciting and demanding application- and purpose-driven sub-discipline of wireless networking.

Furthermore, VANET present a very active field of research, development, standardization, and field trials.  Throughout the world, there are many national and international projects in government, industry, and academia devoted to VANET. These include research programs like the ones on cooperative systems within the eSafety framework of the European Union, the Intellidrive initiative in the US, Smartway, DSSS (Driving Safety Support System) and ASV (Advanced Safety Vehicle) in Japan, simTD in Germany and SCOREF in France. Standardization is well under way with the activities worldwide in ISO TC204 and IEEE (802.11p and 1609.x), SAE J2735 in the US, ETSI TC ITS and CEN WG278 in Europe and ARIB T-75 in Japan.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting new research related to the theory or practice of vehicular inter-networking (VANET).  All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Channel modeling
- Modulation and coding
- Power control and scalability issues
- Medium access control protocols
- Multi-channel organization and operation
- Communication protocol design
- Safety and non-safety applications
- Vehicle-to-vehicle/roadside/Internet communication
- Simulation frameworks
- Field operational testing
- Test methodologies
- Impact assessment
- Network management
- Security issues and countermeasures
- Privacy issues
- Organisational and economic models

Submission Instructions

All paper submissions will be handled electronically.  Papers must be in PDF format, no longer than 10 pages (single- or double-column), use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates ( and must fit properly on US Letter-sized paper (8.5 inch x 11 inch) with reasonable margins. Submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through a double-blind review process, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers.

We also encourage the submission of position papers with a maximum length of 6 pages (following the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates above). Position papers will generally include preliminary results and are expected to describe highly original ideas, discuss new directions, or generate insightful discussion at the workshop. Position papers can be a good way to obtain early feedback before submitting complete work to highly selective venues such as ACM MobiCom.

Detailed instructions for paper submission will be posted on the VANET 2010 web page at:
