Call for Papers

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:


  • 5G technologies for connected vehicles
  • Emerging V2X communication technologies, including dynamic spectrum sharing, mmWave, massive MIMO, beamforming, and vehicular visible light communications (VLC)
  • Networking, transport and QoS management for vehicular networks
  • In-vehicle communication and networking systems 
  • Radio for vehicular networks: channel measurements, propagation models, antenna design, etc

Architecture and System Design

  • Heterogeneous vehicular networking (e.g., multi-radio, multi-channel, multi-application, multi-technology)
  • Architectures and system designs for connected, automated driving
  • Edge computing and cloud
  • Security, privacy, liability, and dependability of vehicular networks
  • Integration of V2C with on-board systems and networks

Tools & Methods

  • Hardware and software platforms for the simulation, emulation, prototyping, measurement, and/or real-world deployment of vehicular networks and applications
  • Field measurements and/or real-world deployments of vehicular networks and applications
  • Modeling, design, and analysis of vehicular networks and applications

Connected & Automated Driving and Other Applications

  • Cooperative perception and cooperative driving
  • Innovative vehicular network applications and their communication requirements
  • Vulnerable road user protection
  • Vehicular networks and IoT integration
  • Impact assessments of vehicular networks on transportation

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.

Manuscript submissions

Instruction for the manuscript submission will be available soon
