Important Dates

- Submission Due: May 31, 2009

- Acceptance Notification: June 30, 2009

- Final Manuscript due: July 31, 2009



The last few years have witnessed an unmistable converge of Intelligent 
Transportation Systems (ITS) and Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANET) 
leading to the emergence of Intelligent Vehicular Networks (InVeNET) 
that promise to revolutionize the way we drive by creating a ubiquitous 
safe and secure environment that will eventually pervade our highways 
and city streets.



InVeNET 2009 has for stated goal to be a high-profile workshop that 
brings together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, 
specification, and implementation of architectures and protocols for 
current and future applications of VANET. We aim to provide an 
environment conducive of cross-fertilization between researchers from 
many areas, all relevant, in one way or another to the confluence of 
Intelligent Transportation Systems and VANET. By creative a relaxed, 
collegial atmosphere, the will foster a dialogue between researchers 
from industry and academia on the state of the art in both ITS and VANET.

We anticipate the publication of a special issue of a high-quality 
archival journal (IEEE Transactions of Parallel and Distributed Systems, 
or IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology being likely candidates) 
dedicated to selected papers from the workshop.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original unpublished 
manuscripts related to the theory or practice of Intelligent Vehicular 
Networks.

Of particular interest are ITS applications that rely directly or 
indirectly on contributions from VANET.  Submissions are being accepted 
with the understanding that they describe original research, neither 
published nor currently under review elsewhere.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Vehicular network architectures and protocols

- Mobility management and topology control

- Vehicular network performance modeling and analysis

- Vehicular network medium access control and routing protocols

- Intelligent Transportation Systems and Applications

- Modeling and simulation of Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Theoretical aspects: performance modeling and analysis

- Organizing coordination and communication

- Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning in Intelligent Vehicular Networks

- Human factors in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Information aggregation/dissemination in Intelligent vehicular Networks

- Localization in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Bayesian decision systems

- Challenges of V2V and V2I wireless communication

- Security and privacy issues in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Applications and case studies

- Real-world test beds

Manuscript Submission

All submissions to InVeNET must adhere to the pdf format.

Submitted manuscripts should be uploaded through the EDAS conference 
management system, and must not exceed six (6) single-spaced, two-column

   pages using at least 11 point size fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch pages 
(standard IEEE conference format, IEEE Latex and Microsoft Word style
