1st IEEE International Symposium on Wireless
30th September - 1st October 2007
Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, 202 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD, USA, 21202
Wireless vehicular communications has been identified as a key technology for increasing road safety and transport efficiency, and providing Internet access on the move to ensure wireless ubiquitous connectivity. The potential of this technology has been acknowledged with the establishment of ambitious research programs worldwide, such as the European eSafety initiative, the US programs derived from the Intelligent Vehicle Initiative and the Japanese InternetITS and AHS programs.
The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) currently covers through its areas of interest (Mobile Radio, Transportation Systems and Automotive Electronics) all technical aspects needed to make wireless vehicular communications a reality. As a result, the IEEE VTS society has decided to establish a technical symposium on wireless vehicular communications, with the first issues planned to be co-located with the reputed IEEE VTC conferences.
The IEEE International Symposium on Wireless Vehicular Communications (WiVeC) covers all vehicular wireless communications aspects of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Person (V2P) communications, including implications on transport efficiency and safety, implications on automotive electronics, liability issues, standardizations efforts and spectrum assignment.
The first IEEE WiVeC symposium was co-located with the 66th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference and took place at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore on the 30th September and 1st October 2007. Combined registrations packages will be offered to attendees to WiVeC and VTC conferences.
All accepted papers are published on the IEEE Xplore database. A selection of the best five WiVeC papers were published in a special issue of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine www.ieeevtm.org.
