International workshop on Wireless Sensor-Vehicular Networks and Road Safety
(WSVNRS 2015)

To be held in conjunction with

The 10th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications (FNC 2015)

August 17-20, 2015, Belfort, France.

Workshop Website:
Important Dates
Submission Deadline:      April 30, 2015
Author Notification:         June 1, 2015
Final Manuscript:             June 10, 2015

Millions of people around the world die in car accidents and many more are
stricken, the car accidents have an increasing growth rate causing huge
economic losses. Road Traffic congestion is a main problem that is of a major
concern. This problem is increasing seriously day by day and accidents occur
much more than common. This causes a traffic blockage, wasted a significant
amount of time and fuel. However, Vehicular networks have received deep of
research work in the recent years due to the wide range of services they
provide. Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is the most important part of
Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). These systems sometimes help in
accident and traffic blockage prevention, but for several reasons, they are
not always useful.  Using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) with VANET may to
provide timely detection of road conditions and to help enhance road safety.
WSVNRS workshop aims to present the different aspects of integration of WSN
with VANET and discuss the possible ways permitting the exploitation of the
existing synergy between WNS and VANET and allowing road safety improvement.
This workshop “WSVNRS 2015” is an opportunity to bring together researchers
from academia and industry to share their state-of-the art research and
developmental work in this area.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  *   Data dissemination protocols for active safety in WSVNRS

  *   Wireless sensor Vehicular networks for automatically detection of road accident

  *   Wireless sensor Vehicular networks architectures, protocols, and algorithms

  *   Wireless sensor networks for road traffic management

  *   Use of WSN within cars

  *   Wireless sensor Vehicular networks performance modeling and analysis

  *   Medium access control and routing protocols

  *   Wireless sensor Vehicular networks flow and congestion control

  *   Quality of Services (QoS) provisioning for WSVNRS

  *   Wireless sensor Vehicular networks for vehicle control, and road safety

  *   Mobility management in WSVNRS

  *   Measurements and Hardware and Software Platforms, Systems, and Testbed for WSVNRS
