Special Session on Information Dissemination in Vehicular Networks
This session will focus on state-of-the-art technologies for information dissemination in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) networks. There is growing interest in using V2V or V2I communications to enable ITS (Intelligent Transport System) services which can range from time-critical safety services, traffic management, to infotainment and local advertising services. How to effectively and efficiently disseminate information in a timely and reliable manner is critical to ITS services. However, the unique characteristics of vehicle networks present challenges in achieving service performance. Applicable information dissemination technologies may include delay tolerant approaches, data aggregation methods and routing schemes to mitigate congestion on the wireless medium, maintain network connectivity and improve overall communication performance. The impact and significance of such technologies for varying degrees of V2V and V2I connectivity and for varying deployment scenarios are also critical. This session seeks to provide a forum to present and discuss original relevant research results.
Authors are invited to submit regular technical papers or position papers. The position papers should present novel technologies at an early stage of development or share future vision. All the submissions should describe original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Please submit the paper through EDAS.
