WASHINGTON, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Organizers of the IEEE International Conference on Connected Vehicles and Expo are calling for technical or digest papers from around the world in:
-- Wireless Communications & Vehicular Networking -- Mobile Internet, Mobility Internet & Internet of Things -- Cooperative Driving, Intelligent & Autonomous Vehicles -- Automotive Electronics & Automatic Control -- Transportation & Connected Vehicles -- Manufacturing & Product Safety Engineering in Connected Vehicles -- Practices, Recommendations & Standards in Connected Vehicles -- Electric Vehicles & Transportation Electrification -- Geographic, Spatial & Social Information Systems -- Policy, Economics & Social Implications of Connected Vehicles
Accepted papers will be presented at ICCVE 2014 in Vienna, Austria, 3-7 November. Global experts, practitioners and policymakers will present the latest innovations and breakthroughs on connected vehicles, while sharing insights, discussing economic, policy and social implications and forecasting trends and opportunities.
Proposals for industry forum speeches, demos and exhibits are also sought.
Connected vehicles use wireless modems and sensors to connect and communicate with, among other things, road infrastructure and systems, the cloud and other vehicles. Current technologies include speed-control accident avoidance, automated parallel parking, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist. Future capabilities include autonomous self-driving vehicles.
"By connecting vehicles with various devices, services and participants, we are able to make our mobility more clean, efficient, enjoyable and safe," said Lee Stogner, chair of the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICCVE 2014 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®, as well as major indexing services. Extended versions of top-quality papers will also be considered for publication in special issues or special sections of several IEEE transactions and magazines.
The five-day conference program will feature technical sessions, workshops, summits, industry forums, demos, exhibits, tutorials and tours.
ICCVE is cosponsored by more than 20 societies and organizations, including IEEE-USA. Previous events were held in Beijing (December 2012) and Las Vegas (December 2013). Because ICCVE has become the most-searched connected vehicles conference in the world, it is an ideal place for exhibitors in the transportation and automotive industry.
IEEE-USA serves the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of more than 200,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.
