2010 3rd IEEE International Symposium on Wireless Vehicular Communications: IEEE WiVEC 2010
16–17 May 2010, Taipei, Taiwan
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.
After the successful first and second WiVeC editions in 2007 and 2008, the third IEEE WiVeC symposium was co-located with the 71th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference 2010 Spring conference and will take place at the Grand Hotel in Taipei on the 16th and 17th of May 2010.
All accepted papers were included in the VTC 2010-Spring conference proceedings and published on the IEEE Xplore database.
Note: VTC Fall editions are traditionally located in North America, while VTC Spring is located in other areas of the world. Since WiVeC was originally launched co-located with VTC Fall editions, the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society decided that WiVeC would take place every year and a half in order to ensure that the conference is alternatively co-located with VTC Fall and Spring editions. This resulted in that there was no WiVeC edition in 2009.
