Workshop on Dependable Vehicular Communications
1st IEEE International Workshop on Dependable Vehicular Communications (DVC) to be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Communications 2015 (ICC 2015), 8-12 June 2015, London, United Kingdom

Full paper submission deadline: Jan. 10, 2015
Dependable wireless communications with short-latency, low outage probability over non-stationary vehicular communication channels is a challenging task. It involves a multi disciplinary effort including vehicular channel measurements, characterization and modeling; cooperative communications; and low-latency protocol design. A dependable wireless communication framework will be essential for vehicular ad-hoc networks, device-to-device communication links in future 5G systems, and cyber physical systems in general.
The goal of the workshop is to solicit the development of dependable vehicular communication systems. This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to dependable vehicular communications.
This workshop is organized in part by the EU Network of Excellence NEWCOM# and the European COST Action IC1004.
It will be held in conjunction to the International Conference on Communications (ICC 2015).
May include but not limited to:
- Vehicular channel measurements
- Channel characterization and modeling
- Channel estimation algorithms
- Cooperative communications for vehicular scenarios
- Signal processing techniques
- Protocols for cooperative communications
- Integration of vehicular networks in 5G systems
- Dependability aspects of channel access
- Fault tolerant protocols and error recovery
- System level simulation concepts
- Key requirements (latency, reliability) and conformance tests for DVC
- Performance bounds and optimization
- Field tests of vehicular communications

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 6 printed pages (minimum 10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges. One additional page is allowed with a charge of USD100, if accepted. Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor will they be reviewed at all. Authors should use the relevant IEEE template, ensuring IEEE Explore compatible PDF-format. Papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore/IEEE Digital Library under “IEEE Intern. Conference on Communications Workshops”. Please note that at ICC2015 authors will be required to present their papers in person to qualify for publication of their papers in IEEEXplore.
