Third International Workshop on Vehicular Adhoc Networks for Smart Cities


To be held in Paris, France, November 13, 2019.


Scope of the workshop


After the successful edition of the first and the second IWVSC respectively in 2014 and 2016, the third edition wil be held in Paris, France.

Vehicular communication is a key technology in intelligent transportation systems. For many years now, the academic and industrial research communities have been investigating these communications in order to improve efficiency and safety of future transportation. Vehicular

networking will offer a wide variety of applications, including safety applications as well as infotainment applications. More generally, future communicating cars will evolve in a more intelligent environment also called smart cities. In this context, the interaction between intelligent vehicles and intelligent infrastructures will influence each other, to achieve each other targets. In one hand, the car drivers (or automated cars) want to travel in an efficient and safe manner and in the other hand smart cities would try to offer the best life conditions for citizens by reducing air pollution and noise for the inhabitants, and reducing traffic congestion with a better traffic information system for car drivers. Efficient interaction between vehicles and smart cities infrastructures is naturally needed to reach these goals.

At the same time the set of the communicating vehicles is seen as an Internet of Vehicles (IoV) platform providing several interesting capacities. First with the increasing number of sensors embedded on vehicles, a large variety of information can be collected and exploited not only by vehicles but also by other stakeholders (car markers, insurance companies, cities authorities, …). Second, the computing and storage capacities available on vehicles can form a vehicular cloud that can be exploited by third parties. Future smart cities are well placed and a natural candidate to take profit from these extraordinary mobile infrastructures. IWVSC\’2019 aims at providing a forum and to bring together people from both academia and industry, to discuss recent developments in vehicular networking technologies and their interaction with future smart cities in order to promote further research activities and challenges.

We solicit technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications

Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications for smart cities

Medium access control protocols for V2X

Routing protocols for active safety in V2X

Geographical routing protocols for V2X

Architectures, algorithms and protocols design for data dissemination, processing, and aggregation in vehicular networks

V2X cooperation for automated driving

V2X cooperation for extended perception

Cybersecurity, privacy in vehicular networks

Heterogenous vehicular networks (ITS-G5, 3G/4G/5G, VLC, Satellite )

SDN/NFV for vehicular communication

QoS provisioning for vehicular networks

Vehicular clouds: architecture design, algorithms and protocols for smart cities
