Welcome to VTC2016-Spring in the vibrant city of Nanjing! Located in the Yangtze River Delta area and the center of East China, Nanjing is one of the nation's most important cities for over a thousand years, and is recognized as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, which has enjoyed peace and prosperity, and borne wars and disasters. Today, with a long cultural tradition and strong local educational institutions, Nanjing is commonly viewed as a 'city of culture' and one of the most pleasant cities to live in China.

For the first time, this flagship conference of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society is held in mainland China. VTC2016-Spring in Nanjing will bring together individuals from academia, government, and industry to discuss and exchange ideals in the fields of wireless, mobile, and vehicular technology. During the conference, you will enjoy the rich technical blend of plenaries and panels presented by distinguished industrial and academic leaders converging on Nanjing from all over the world. These will also be complemented by tutorials, workshops and of course the regular technical sessions.

We are indebted to the entire organizing and technical program committees, especially to the TPC Chairs Fu-Chun Zheng, Geoffrey Li and Zhisheng Niu for their excellent and professional service, as well as to all the Track Chairs, Workshop Chairs, Tutorials and Panels Chairs, for their dedication. Our committees have also been consistently assisted by the VTS board members and VTS staff. Besides, our sincere appreciation also goes to generous donors, patrons and supporters, especially Qualcomm, Huawei, National Instruments, Ericsson, and Southeast University, for their participation and support.

Finally, we hope that you will enjoy the technical discussions, meeting old friends, making new professional linkages, and experiencing dynamic Nanjing and the great China!

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Nanjing and VTC2016-Spring!

We are living in an exciting age. The near universal adoption of smart phones is transforming every aspect of human life. This has in turn raised huge challenges for the wireless industry: much higher data rates in much wider areas, much lower latency for massive networks of things, and much higher energy efficiency. As such, this conference has fittingly been themed "Green City and Wireless Future".

VTC2016-Spring will serve as an ideal forum for this fast evolving field at such an exciting time. Nearly all the hottest issues and many of latest R&D results will be reflected in the 73 technical sessions, 2 plenary sessions, 3 panel sessions, 7 workshops, and 6 tutorials at this conference.

The 492 papers in the conference cover the full range of wireless and vehicular communications technology. Reflecting the current research directions, the "LTE" track has attracted the largest number of paper submissions, closely followed by the "Multiple Antenna Systems" track and the "Signal Transmission" track.

We must thank all the authors who submitted their work to VTC2016-Spring. Each submitted paper has been independently reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to all our Technical Programme Committee (TPC) members and reviewers. It is these colleagues who have spent their valuable time in providing their own reviews and in soliciting external reviews. Without these efforts from the authors and reviewers, the high quality technical programme that we see now would not have been possible.

We cannot finish this message without mentioning our track chairs and co-chairs. They have always completed their tasks with flying colours – often against very tight deadlines. Due to the space, we are not able to name them here, but it has been a truly humbling experience to work with them all.

We look forward to your company at VTC2016-Spring in Nanjing.

Welcome from the VTS President
Javier Gozalvez

On behalf of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the IEEE 83rd Vehicular Technology Conference in Nanjing.

This edition of VTC will mark a historic moment with our visit to China. The selection of Nanjing as host city is not fortuitous. In addition to its historical, cultural and natural beauty, Nanjing is an industrial technology research and development hub, and is home to high-quality universities and research institutes.

VTC2016-Spring happens at a key time for the wireless and vehicular industries as 5G systems are being designed and we prepare for the deployment of connected vehicles using V2X. The conference is hence a perfect venue for industry and academia to share and discuss ideas that can have a profound impact in the development of 5G and connected vehicles.

An event like VTC cannot take place without the efforts of a dedicated team. I would like to thank and recognize the remarkable work of General co-Chairs Professors Xiaohu You, Pingzhi Fan and Shaoqian Li, whose leadership has been instrumental to create the conference program that you will enjoy. I would also like to express my gratitude to the Technical Program co-Chairs Professors Fu-Chun Zheng, Geoffrey Li, and Zhisheng Niu. Their dedicated work has helped shape an outstanding technical program. My personal gratitude goes also to all the conference team and our VTS conference administrators for their continued support.

VTC is an excellent occasion for our members to meet with our Board of Governors, so don’t hesitate to approach us if you would like to provide any feedback on the Society or to participate in its management. If you are a VTS member, join us in the VTS members’ reception!

I hope that you will enjoy the conference and the city of Nanjing.

Javier Gozalvez
President, IEEE Vehicular Technology Society
