                       Announcement and Call for Papers

          First International Workshop on Intelligent Vehicular Networks

                               (InVeNET 2009)

                        Co-Located with IEEE MASS 2009

                     (October 5, 2009 - Macau SAR, P.R.C.)


Important Dates

- Submission Due: May 31, 2009

- Acceptance Notification: June 30, 2009

- Final Manuscript due: July 31, 2009

The last few years have witnessed an unmistable converge of Intelligent
Transportation Systems (ITS) and Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANET)
leading to the emergence of Intelligent Vehicular Networks (InVeNET)
that promise to revolutionize the way we drive by creating a ubiquitous
safe and secure environment that will eventually pervade our highways
and city streets.

InVeNET 2009 has for stated goal to be a high-profile workshop that
brings together state-of-the-art contributions on the design,
specification, and implementation of architectures and protocols for
current and future applications of VANET. We aim to provide an
environment conducive of cross-fertilization between researchers from
many areas, all relevant, in one way or another to the confluence of
Intelligent Transportation Systems and VANET. By creative a relaxed,
collegial atmosphere, the will foster a dialogue between researchers
from industry and academia on the state of the art in both ITS and VANET.

We anticipate the publication of a special issue of a high-quality
archival journal (IEEE Transactions of Parallel and Distributed Systems,
or IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology being likely candidates)
dedicated to selected papers from the workshop.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original unpublished
manuscripts related to the theory or practice of Intelligent Vehicular

Of particular interest are ITS applications that rely directly or
indirectly on contributions from VANET.  Submissions are being accepted
with the understanding that they describe original research, neither
published nor currently under review elsewhere.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Vehicular network architectures and protocols

- Mobility management and topology control

- Vehicular network performance modeling and analysis

- Vehicular network medium access control and routing protocols

- Intelligent Transportation Systems and Applications

- Modeling and simulation of Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Theoretical aspects: performance modeling and analysis

- Organizing coordination and communication

- Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning in Intelligent Vehicular Networks

- Human factors in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Information aggregation/dissemination in Intelligent vehicular Networks

- Localization in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Bayesian decision systems

- Challenges of V2V and V2I wireless communication

- Security and privacy issues in Intelligent Vehicular Systems

- Applications and case studies

- Real-world test beds

Manuscript Submission

All submissions to InVeNET must adhere to the pdf format.

Submitted manuscripts should be uploaded through the EDAS conference
management system, and must not exceed six (6) single-spaced, two-column

   pages using at least 11 point size fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch pages
(standard IEEE conference format, IEEE Latex and Microsoft Word style
