[DMANET] [CFP] Last Call - ICDCS Workshop - 6th International Workshop on Vehicular Networking and Intelligent Transportation systems (VENITS 2023)

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]



6th International Workshop on Vehicular Networking and Intelligent
Transportation systems (VENITS 2023)
co-Located with the 43rd IEEE International Conference on Distributed
Computing Systems (ICDCS 2023)

July 18-21, 2023 - Hong Kong, China
Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore


Important Dates:

Submission deadline: April 5, 2023 (firm deadline)
Notification of acceptance: April 22, 2023
Camera-ready version: May 5, 2023


We are glad to offer authors the possibility to publish selected papers in
the MDPI Computers journal, special issue on Vehicular Networking and
Intelligent Transportation Systems, 2023 ( The
papers will be published in Open Access form with APC waived.


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.
In addition, all types of autonomous vehicles, including aerial,
terrestrial and maritime drones, can also support ITS systems and processes
to achieve unprecedented performance, safety and services.
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, integration with autonomous
vehicles, etc.
This workshop is soliciting original technical papers addressing the main
research challenges in the vehicular networking and the intelligent
transportation systems area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

- Wireless vehicular networking (aerial, terrestrial and maritime vehicles)
- Congestion and admission control in dense vehicular networks
- Content distribution in wireless vehicular environments
- Smartphone/vehicle integration
- Edge solutions for ITS
- Cooperative sensing of road conditions
- Network and system architectures for mobile vehicular computing
- DSRC/WAVE communications. DSRC alternatives and supporting technologies
- 5G/6G technologies for vehicular environments. - Network protocols and
algorithms, including clustering, routing, etc.
- Integration with aerial, terrestrial and maritime autonomous vehicles.
- UAV support for ground vehicle communications and services.
- Statistical analysis, prediction and management of vehicular mobility
- Multimedia communications in vehicular scenarios
- Models, simulators and tools for vehicular environments
- Communications for safety of vulnerable road users
- Communications for automated driving
- Security and trust issues in vehicular environments

Papers Submission:

The workshop accepts novel and previously unpublished papers. Submitted
manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format
(double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EasyChair as PDF
files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper).

The manuscripts should be no longer than 6 pages. Two additional pages are
permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the
time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages).
Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under
consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The
workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that
either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published
elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s)
and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es).
