Wireless communication for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) is a promising technology to
improve safety and security for all transport modes, to reduce traffic congestion, to optimize
the use of existing infrastructures (road, rail maritime, fluvial) and support information services
in vehicles with the general purpose of reducing the impact of transport on the environment. The
development of sustainable mobility is a key challenge for the development of urban areas. A new
era of vehicular technology that includes vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure
(V2I) communication is already there in the public transport domain and this should be generalized.
This era will be driven by both (pre-competitive) public-sector and private-sector funding. Safety-
related applications are not only taken into consideration, but non-safety multimedia content
providers are also becoming a new topic of research. Key players in the industry, such as automotive
companies, public transport operators, railway industries and government agencies, are investing
heavily in the advanced research and development of many ITS technologies and applications. This
research effort primarily focuses on the system development and standardization of telematics.
During recent ITS developments, transportation telematics techniques have exhibited much progress,
e.g., interaction between vehicles and the infrastructure for delivering services such as road-side
assistance, automatic crash notification, concierge assistance and vehicle condition reports. These
progresses are also really important in the public transport domain (buses, metro, trains, tramways)
for which V2V and V2I for safety and non safety applications are a key component for the exploitation
but also for reducing energy consumption. A number of IEEE 802.11p-like equipment prototypes have been
built, and several technical reports based on field trials have demonstrated the lack of cutting-edge
techniques to improve system performance. Furthermore, all these applications require accurate and
reliable positioning using GNSS solutions alone or enhanced with map-matching and sensors fusion.
Technology and applications for ITS and telematics design are rapidly emerging, and there is a critical
need to bring together professional researchers, intelligent engineers, academia, industry, standard
committees, the private sector and the public sector to exchange new ideas. This conference aims to
spur research progress by serving as a forum in which both academia and industry can share experiences
and report original work regarding all aspects of vehicular communication, e.g., Vehicular Ad hoc Networks
(VANETs), cooperative systems, information dissemination, road and rail safety, information and emergency
services, etc. Our primary goal is to promote meaningful research in the cross-layered design of
architectures, algorithms and applications for vehicular communication environments in all transport modes.

Some papers will be nominated by the International Advisory Board for the Best Paper Award.〔
To enhance the scientific quality of this event, the conference Organizing Committee has entered
into an agreement with the Editor-in-Chief (Dr. Alan Stevens) and the publishing office of
IET Intelligent Transport Systems (IET ITS), which is an SCI-E (ISI) and EI indexed peer-reviewed
journal. See: Shortly after the close of ITST-2012, authors of papers
that are considered suitable for expansion and consideration for a Conference Special Issue will
receive a formal invitation to submit an updated and enhanced paper. Papers will go through the
journal's standard peer-review process and, if accepted for publication, will be indexed in the
citations databases. This Special Issue will appear as a (hardcopy) publication in June 2014 with
accepted papers available on-line in March 2014.
