IEEE VNC 2021 - Call for Papers

13th IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)

November 10-12, 2021
Ulm, Germany

Now in its 13th year, VNC has been the primary venue for people
interested in vehicular communication to meet.

Last year, VNC 2020 featured a very different format. While some
attendees called it the best online-conference they attended in 2020,
not meeting in person is only the second best option.

In 2021, the organizing team is therefore committed to bring back the
opportunity to meet in-person again. As the development of the pandemic
over the next months and thus the possibilities to travel to and meet in
a conference venue in November are hard to predict, we made the decision
to plan VNC 2021 in a hybrid format where we aim for an equally good
conference experience for both presenters and attendees no matter if you
attend on-site or remotely. You will be able to register for the online
conference and book an add-on package for on-site participation even on
relatively short notice, leaving you all options open as long as

We therefore encourage authors to submit their papers to VNC 2021 and
enjoy the best of both worlds: on-site presentations and meetings with
the VNC community if possible; or an excellent online experience if
travel cannot be arranged.

VNC 2021 is seeking for full and short papers, poster and demo papers
about the following topics.

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

Architecture and System Design
- Heterogeneous vehicular networking (e.g., multi-radio, multi-channel,
multi-application, multi-technology, multi-operator) and coexistence
of access technologies
- Architectures and system designs for connected automated driving
- Cloud and edge computing for vehicular applications
- Security, privacy, liability, and dependability of vehicular networks
- Integration of V2C communications with on-board systems and networks

Tools & Methods
- Hardware and software platforms for 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
- Optimization techniques (e.g., linear programming, machine learning)
with unique benefits for vehicular applications
- Modeling, design, and analysis of vehicular networks and applications

- Cooperative perception and cooperative driving
- Innovative vehicular network applications and their communication
- Vulnerable road user protection
- Vehicular networks and IoT integration
- Impact assessments of vehicular networks on transportation (e.g.,
safety, efficiency, comfort, privacy, and environmental

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The Best Paper Award,
selected by a committee, 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.


24 Jul 2021: Paper submissions due (final)
1 Sep 2021: Poster and Demo submissions due (final)
16 Sep 2021: Acceptance notifications
30 Sep 2021: Camera ready versions due
10 Nov 2021: Conference starts (virtually and in Ulm, Germany)

Submission Types:

The conference will consider four categories of submissions:

Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are limited
in length to eight (8) printed pages including figures, tables, and
references. Papers exceeding 8 pages will be declined automatically and
will not be reviewed.

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.

Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research
directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet
fully validated through complete extensive evaluation. They are limited
to at most two (2) pages and their title must begin with "Poster:".

Demonstration (demo) papers are suited for researchers to showcase their
latest prototypes with media, models, or live demonstrations. They are
limited to at most two (2) pages and their title must begin with

Please note that these categories (in particular: full paper and short
paper) target different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to one
category will NOT be moved to a different category: a paper will either
be accepted in the category where it has been submitted, or it will be
rejected (in particular: 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.

Submission Process:

Submitted papers must be IEEE compliant Adobe PDF files written in
English, formatted in standard IEEE two-column format with a font size
no less than 10-point. Reviewing is not double-blind, so authors may
include their names, affiliations, and other identifying information in
submitted manuscripts. Only compliant files will be accepted for review.
All submissions must be made electronically through EDAS. Detailed
submission instructions will be made available on the conference
