[DMANET] CFP: IEEE WoWMoM 2015 workshop on Smart Vehicles: Connectivity Technologies and ITS Applications -- Paper Registration Deadline: 7 March, 2015

Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.


The Second IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on
Smart Vehicles: Connectivity Technologies and ITS Applications
(SmartVehicles 2015)
June 14-17, 2015, Boston, MA, USA

**** Paper Registration Deadline --- March 7, 2015 ****
**** Paper Submission Deadline --- March 14, 2015 ****


The development of smart vehicles and more sustainable transportation systems has emerged as one of the most fundamental societal challenges of the next decade. At the same time, automotive manufacturers are striving to make vehicles safer and more environmentally friendly to fulfil consumers' expectations and new regulations. To revolutionise our mobile lifestyle towards a more sustainable and connected future it is of paramount importance to develop innovative cooperative systems enabling road users and other actors to exchange information in real time and in an autonomous manner, pervasive sensing to monitor the status of vehicles and the surroundings, big data analytics for the processing of sheer amount of data coming from the transportation infrastructure, middleware platforms for information management and sharing, and appropriate interaction interfaces between drivers and vehicles. Clearly, the seamless integration between mobile devices, vehicular communication netw!
orks, and information and transportation systems will face a number of technical, economical and regulatory challenges.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting recent developments, current research challenges and future directions in the use of networking, communications, data management, and applications to realise vehicular mobility systems that are more connected, sustainable and safe.

Topics of interest for SmartVehicles 2015 include, but are not limited to:

+ Vehicular Network as a Sensor Network;
+ V2V, V2I and V2X communications
+ Vehicular mobility support in next-generation wireless technologies
+ Communications protocol design (MAC, routing, data dissemination)
+ Data storage, management, and retrieval in vehicular networks
+ Solutions to connect vehicles with the Internet
+ Big data analytics for ITS applications
+ Security and privacy in ITS applications
+ Multimedia applications, infotainment
+ Cooperative driving, autonomous and smart vehicles
+ Traffic management and efficiency applications
+ Electrification of transportation systems
+ Simulation environments, experimental testbeds, field operational tests
+ Mobile (smart) device integration in vehicles and transport systems
+ Integration of cloud technologies in ITS applications

Submission will be managed electronically through EDAS (

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the template format. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are available at:

Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEEXplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present his/her work at the workshop in order for that paper to appear in the proceedings.
