IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) 2018 will provide a platform for world-leading scholars in the vehicular networking and communication research community to showcase their state-of-the-art research, and faciliate interactions between the academia and the industry. The 2018 edition of the conference marks the tenth edition of a series of the annual events since 2009, which witnesses the development of the V2X systems since its infancy and the realization of fully autonomous vehicles and communication-coordinated vehicle platoons. The event is sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS).

This year's conference will be held in Taipei, Taiwan

The 2018 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) seeks to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular networking technologies, and their applications. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 5G technologies for connected vehicles
  • New V2X technologies: Cellular V2X (C-V2X), Vehicular visible light communications (VLC), TV White Spaces (TVWS), etc.
  • Millimeter wave (mmWave) for V2X communication
  • Communications and networking for automated and semi-automated vehicles: cooperative perception, cooperative maneuvering, cooperative intersections and highways, platooning
  • Congestion and awareness control in vehicular networks
  • Safety and non-safety applications of vehicular networks, including ITS
  • V2V, V2I and V2X communications and networking protocols
  • Vehicular communications with VRUs (Vulnerable Road Users) e.g., with bicyclists, pedestrians, etc.
  • Collaborative mapping and localization systems
  • Connected smart parking systems
  • In-vehicle communications (wireless or wired)
  • Radio propagation aspects of vehicular networks: channel measurements, propagation models, antenna design, etc.
  • Protocols for vehicular networking (radio resource management, link layer, routing, mobility management, dissemination, transport etc.)
  • Security, privacy, liability, and dependability in vehicular networks
  • Network and QoS management for vehicular networks
  • Simulation and performance evaluation techniques for vehicular networks
  • Results from experimental systems, testbeds, and pilot studies
  • Impact assessments of vehicular networks on safety, transportation efficiency, and the environment
  • Communications related to electric and hybrid vehicles
  • Heterogeneous networking approaches (multi-radio, multi-channel, multi-application, multi-technology)
  • Integration of V2V with on-board systems and networks
  • Vehicular networking architectures and system design
  • Applications and services to enhance driver experience, performance, and behavior
  • V2X and IoT Integration
  • V2X-based big data applications and services
  • Machine-learning techniques for efficient V2X communications
  • Cooperative driving

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.


All paper submissions must be written in English and must be formatted in standard IEEE 2-column format. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page. Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All submissions must be made electronically through EDAS.

We will consider three different categories of papers:

  • Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are limited in length to eight (8) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, tables, and references. Papers exceeding 8 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor reviewed at all.
  • Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on work in progress without finished results. They are meant to present novel perspectives, so as to foster discussion about innovative directions and new points of view. They are limited to at most four (4) pages including figures, tables, and references, but might in many cases be even shorter. Accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings and there will be given (a shorter) time for oral presentation at the conference.

Please note that the full paper and short paper categories target different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to a category will NOT be moved to a different category: a paper will either be accepted for the category where it has been submitted, or it will be rejected. Full papers will not be “downgraded” to short papers. Therefore, please be sure to carefully assess for yourself prior to submission which is the most suitable submission category for your paper, and to make sure that the presentation in the manuscript is well suited to the aims of this category.

  • Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet fully validated through complete extensive evaluation. IEEE VNC 2018 will also include a demonstration session for researchers to showcase their latest prototypes with media, models, or live demonstrations. The demo session will be co-located with the poster session to ensure maximum visibility and a close interaction with the conference audience.

    We also encourage the authors of the demo papers to include a link to a short 2-min demonstration video for the reviewers to facilitate the evaluation of the quality of the demonstration proposal. If a video is included, we ask that it be hosted on public video hosting service (e.g., Vimeo, YouTube, or similar) to ensure the anonymity of the reviewers. The videos of accepted demonstration proposals will be advertised on the conference website.

    Poster/demo papers should be 2-page papers following standard IEEE 2-column format using 10-point font. All paper submissions must be written in English. The title of the paper should begin with either "Poster:" or "Demo:". Optionally, a poster paper submission can also include an electronic copy of the poster.
