Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The sixth International Workshop on Vehicular Networking and Intelligent Transportation Systems (VENITS'23) will be held in Hong Kong, China, on 18 July, 2023, which aims to gather researchers, engineers, students, and technologists to exchange, discuss, and share their experiences, ideas, and research results on both the theoretical and practical aspects of wireless networking and transportation technologies. For more details, see: https://grc.webs.upv.es/events/VENITS/2023/cfp.html

The authors of a number of high-quality full papers will be invited after the workshop to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted workshop papers to this Special Issue of Computers, published by MDPI, in open access format. The selection of these papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, the quality of the presentation during the conference, and the expected impact on the research community. Each submission to this Special Issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions; more in-depth evaluations; or additional use cases; and a change in the title, abstract, and keywords. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action. 

We are also inviting regular papers to this Special Issue. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Wireless vehicular networking (aerial, terrestrial and maritime vehicles).
  • Congestion and admission control in dense vehicular networks.
  • Content distribution in wireless vehicular environments.
  • Smartphone/vehicle integration.
  • Edge solutions for ITS.
  • Cooperative sensing of road conditions.
  • Network and system architectures for mobile vehicular computing.
  • DSRC/WAVE communications. DSRC alternatives and supporting technologies.
  • 5G/6G technologies for vehicular environments. Network protocols and algorithms, including clustering, routing, etc.
  • Integration with aerial, terrestrial, and maritime autonomous vehicles.
  • UAV support for ground vehicle communications and services.
  • Statistical analysis, prediction, and management of vehicular mobility.
  • Multimedia communications in vehicular scenarios.
  • Models, simulators, and tools for vehicular environments.
  • Communications for the safety of vulnerable road users.
  • Communications for automated driving.
  • Security and trust issues in vehicular environments.
