ACM CarSys 2017

The Second ACM International Workshop on Connected and Automated Vehicle

A Workshop of MobiCom 2017, Snowbird, Utah, USA

October 16-20, 2017


CarSys 2017 seeks to present innovative and significant research on the
design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of intelligent vehicular
computing, communication and control systems, applications, and services.
The key themes of this workshop are two-fold:

Connected Vehicles: Based on short- and medium-range communications as well
as on cellular networks, vehicular inter-networking will enable vehicular
applications that improve road safety, energy efficiency, optimizes traffic
flow, as well as for infotainment purposes.

Intelligent Vehicles: As vehicles are equipped with more sensing and
computing capabilities, vehicles become more intelligent and are able to
accomplish a number of challenging tasks including autonomous driving.

We are currently witnessing the pursuit of high-performing, reliable,
scalable, secure, and privacy-preserving connected and automated vehicle
technologies, as well as associated mobility services.  These ongoing
innovations present an extraordinary challenge for the research community.
The safety, real-time and security needs of vehicular systems and their
application scenarios make the study of these systems both exciting and
challenging.  Goal-driven inter-disciplinary collaboration among the
automotive industry and academic research community is increasingly seen as
necessary. Furthermore, the connected and intelligent vehicle research
field has been a very active field of research, development,
standardization, and field trials. Throughout the world, there are many
national and international projects in government, industry, and academia
devoted to connected vehicles or autonomous driving vehicles. Many relevant
industry standards and consortia are being created to prepare for the
maturity of these emerging technologies.  CarSys 2017 brings together
researchers from these initiatives around the world to chart the way
forward in this rapidly evolving field.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Automated/semi-automated vehicles

Vehicular active safety system

Information and sensor fusion

Vehicle perception

Cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems

Telematics and vehicle-cloud integration

Vehicular IoT infrastructure

V2I / V2V Communication

Novel technologies for V2X (e.g., LTE-D, VLC, mmWave, TVWS)

Wireless in-car networks

Vehicle communication protocol design and network management

Vehicle to vulnerable road users (VRU, e.g., bicyclists, pedestrians)

Vehicle system architecture and design

Intelligent vehicle software and computing infrastructure

Safety and non-safety applications or service

Applications to improve vehicle driver’s experience, performance, and
behavior Security, privacy issues and protection mechanisms

Field operational testing

*Submission Instructions*
All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Papers must be in PDF
format, no longer than 8 pages (double-column), use the ACM SIG Proceedings
Templates (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and
fit properly on US Letter-sized paper (8.5 inch x 11 inch) with reasonable
margins. We also strongly encourage the submission of position papers or
practice papers with a maximum length of 5 pages (following the ACM
Proceedings Templates above). Position papers will generally include
preliminary results and are expected to describe highly original ideas,
discuss new directions, or generate insightful discussion at the workshop.
Practice papers will provide relevant conclusions derived from real-world
empirical experiences or industrial research/proof-of-concept projects.

*Important Dates*
Paper submission due: July 7, 2017

Notification of acceptance: July 21, 2017

Camera-ready due: August 1, 2017

Workshop date: TBD, between October 16-20, 2017
