December 16–18, 2020 | Virtual Conference
The 2020 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) seeks to virtually bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular networking, connected & automated driving, and other applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Architecture and System Design
Tools & Methods
Connected & Automated Driving and Other Applications
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The Best Paper Award, selected by an independent commitee, will be given to the paper with the highest impact. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
The submitted papers must be written in English and be formatted in the standard IEEE two-column format and with a font size no less than 10-point. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page. The submission process is not double-blind and authors may include their names, affiliations, and other identifying information in the submitted manuscripts. Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All submissions must be made electronically through EDAS. The submission webpage will be available soon.
The conference will consider four categories of submissions:
Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on work-in-progress without fully finished results. They are meant to present novel perspectives, so as to foster discussions 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 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.
Demonstration (demo) papers are suited 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.
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:".
