Proposal submission deadline: 26 February 2017
Notification of acceptance: 8 March 2017

Workshops provide invaluable opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their state-of-the-art research and development results in areas of particular interest. We invite submissions of cutting-edge workshop proposals to complement the technical program of VTC2017-Fall.

Workshops will cover specific topics with a mix of regular papers, panel discussions, keynotes, and possibly poster presentations. We ask for proposals that deal with topics in emerging areas of mobile and vehicular technologies.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  1. Antenna Systems, Propagation, and RF Design
  2. Signal Transmission and Reception
  3. Cognitive Radio and Spectrum Management
  4. Multiple Antenna Systems and Cooperative Communications
  5. Radio Access Technology, LTE, 5G, and Wireless Heterogeneous Networks
  6. Green Communications and Networks
  7. Ad-Hoc, M2M, and Sensor Networks
  8. Wireless Networks: Protocols, Security and Services
  9. Mobile Satellite Systems, Positioning and Navigation
  10. Vehicular Communications, Networks, and Telematics
  11. Electric Vehicles, Vehicular Electronics, and Intelligent Transportation
  12. Future Trends and Emerging Technologies

For topics outside these focus areas, please consult the Workshop Chairs prior to a proposal submission.

Submission Procedure

Workshop proposals, in word or PDF format, should be sent to the Workshop Chairs by email on or before the deadline above. Proposals are limited to 5 pages, and must contain the following information:

  • Title, scope, and list of topics of the workshop
  • Names, affiliation, and email addresses of the workshop organizers
  • List of intended technical committee members (TPC)
  • Format of the workshop (papers, keynotes, panels, posters, etc.)
  • Intended paper review schedule
  • Promotional plan
  • Past history of the workshop, if any (when, where, number of papers, number of participants, etc.)
  • Intended audience of the workshop
  • Rationale, e.g., why is the topic of interest, why is the workshop expected to attract a significant number of high-quality submissions, etc.
  • A draft Call for Papers

All proposals will be independently reviewed and a decision on acceptance communicated by 8 March 2017. After acceptance, workshop organizers are expected to set up a website and to actively promote their workshops, as well as submit details for promotion at the main VTC site. The paper submission process will be arranged and handled by TrackChair.
