by the recent progresses on 5G and autonomous driving, research in
connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) is growing in importance and
popularity. In the networks of CAVs local sensing is shared with other
CAVs and infrastructure to build comprehensive perception of driving
environment and cooperative driving. Advance driving applications can
be enabled by CAV to achieve safer, cleaner and more efficient
transport. While CAV holds great potentials for future transport, the
networks of CAVs present many new research challenges. For example,
cooperative sensing and driving could reduce the reliability of AVs
and comprise the driving safety; Resource sharing and cooperation in
CAVs also raise the big problems of trust and security of CAVs; CAV
applications require stringent and diverse QoS, which poses big
challenging for the communication networks; Heterogeneity of vehicles
on road makes CAV cooperation and infrastructure support challenging;
The large amount data generated by CAVs will drive demand in the CAV
systems to communicate, process and utilize the data.
To unleash the potentials of CAV, it is envisioned that the networks of CAV need to be intelligent, not only on the intelligent CV and AVs, but also intelligent networking and computing for CAV systems. While vehicles ad hoc networks and Internet of vehicles have been widely studied in the last decade, the specific challenges presented by the networks of CAVs have rarely been addressed. ICAV 2021 workshop is to advocate and promote the research on intelligent CAVs, set up a platform for collaboration and discussions on the challenges and opportunities on intelligent CAVs.
ICAV welcomes submissions of original research as well as work-in-progress and position papers that describe original ideas and present new directions. We invite submissions covering the aspects around the design, development and evaluation of architectures, technologies and applications for intelligent CAVs, including but not limited to::
paper submissions will be handled electronically via ICAV
2021 EasyChair submission website. All papers must be original
and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
Authors should prepare a PDF version of their full papers. Submitted
papers should be no more than 6 pages long (for regular papers) and no
more than 3 pages long (for position papers), in two columns, with standard
margins and 10 point or larger font, and must fit
properly on US "Letter"-sized paper (8.5x11 inches).
Please direct any questions about the paper submission process to the Workshop Chairs, Dr Jianhua He (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Alexey Vinel (email@example.com).
