Call For Papers

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 a lot of interest 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 provide timely detection of road conditions and help enhancing 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 WSN and VANET and allowing road safety improvement. This workshop “WSVNRS’16” 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 safety road
• Mobility management in WSVNRS
• Measurements and Hardware and Software Platforms, Systems, and Testbed for WSVNRS

All WSVNRS’16 accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings and published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus ( and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index ( The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP ((

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically in PDF format. Blind submissions should be made through the Easychair system: WSVNRS 2016-Submission (
