Welcome to WiN-ITS 2007
The First International Workshop on Wireless Networking for Intelligent Transportation Systems (WiN-ITS 2007), in conjunction with QShine 2007, Vancouver, British Columbia, August 14, 2007
Recent advances in the wireless communications and networking technologies will significantly impact the design of automobiles to make automobile operations safer and more efficient, and thereby, result in significant progress in the evolution of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) band has been allocated in the USA at 5.9 GHz for vehicle-to-roadside (V2R) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, while the IEEE 802.11p working group is developing enhancements of 802.11 standards to support ITS, vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), vehicular telematics, and infotainment applications. It is anticipated that a single wireless access technology may not suit the needs of all vehicular communication applications, but a heterogeneous wireless networking platform needs to be developed and optimized. Numerous exciting research challenges exist for designing wireless networking protocols for vehicular communication applications. Significant advancements in these research areas are expected in near future.
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and will be made available in ACM Digital Library, as well as indexed by EI and ISI Index.
Address of the Conference:
The Empire Landmark hotel and conference centre, 1400 Robson Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
In-Cooperation with ACM SIGMM, SIGMOBILE, and SIGSIM.
