*********************   CALL FOR PAPERS   ***********************

    17th International Conference on Intelligent Environments
        Special Session on Vehicular communications & ITS


Session Chairs:

Dr. Carlos T. Calafate (Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (UPV), Spain)
Dr. Francisco J. Martinez - University of Zaragoza, Spain


The combination of wireless communications and transportation technologies
has become a key element to achieve traffic safety, reducing the travel
costs, and increasing our life quality tremendously.
Once the new Intelligent Transportation Systems are deployed, our roads and
highways will be able to provide enhanced services to users through the
combination of V2X and cellular communications, thus completely
revolutionizing when and how we communicate, commute, and navigate, in the
coming future.
Under such conditions, several issues remain open in the field on vehicular
networking, including message dissemination in congested environments,
Quality of Service (QoS), efficient and adaptive routing, MAC layer
enhancements, mobility prediction, efficient handovers, and also in
Intelligent Transportation Systems, such as efficient road traffic
managing, optimal emergency services operation, etc.
Thus, the goal of this special session is to gather original technical
papers addressing the main research challenges in the vehicular networking
and the intelligent transportation systems area, hence opening a forum for
fruitful analysis and discussion.

Accepted papers in this Special Session will be part of the IEEE Main
Conference Proceedings. The Intelligent Environments conference is
currently indexed by both EI Compendex and Thomson’s Web of Science
(Thomson ISI), and the 2021 edition will also be submitted for indexing.
