International Workshop on Vehicular CommunicationSystems and Networks (VCSN 2013)

Rapid developments in wireless and mobile communications have made a paradigm shift in human lifestyles. Due to increased urbanization and industrial development, vehicle density on the roads have increased manifold. Fast moving vehicles, passenger cars and other transport carriers have given rise to new challenges for communication engineers to provide safe and economic solutions for the transportation management systems. The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are aimed at mitigating traffic related issues for on-road vehicles. Recently, the vehicular communication systems have attracted much attention, fueled largely by the growing interest in ITS. These systems are considered for addressing critical issues like improving passenger safety and reducing traffic congestion on the road, by integrating information and communication technologies adequately and appropriately into the transportation infrastructure and also the vehicles. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks(VANETs), which allow vehicles equipped with wireless communications devices to form a self-organized network without the requirement of permanent infrastructures, are highly mobile wireless ad hoc networks envisioned to provide support for both safety and non-safety applications by enabling vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. Safety applications include automatic collision warning, bad weather detection and notification, remote vehicle diagnostics, emergency management, and a number of other assistances in real time. Non-safety applications include providing real-time traffic congestion and routing information, high speed Internet access and so on. Designing high-performance, scalable, robust and secure vehicular networking technology presents an extraordinary challenge to the wireless research community.


International Workshop on Vehicular Communication Systems and Networks (VCSN 2013) invites original and unpublished contributions that deal with recent advances in the development of wireless vehicular networking technologies, novel results and solutions to solve various problems. Original papers addressing applications and architecture, systems and protocols design, development and analysis, in all areas related to Vehicular Networking systems are solicited. Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at:

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the Conference before the indicated deadline. Accepted papers will be published in the ICACCI 2013 Proceedings which will be available through IEEE Xplore® after the conference.
