8th Workshop On User MObility and VEhicular Networks

Call for papers

Authors are invited to submit papers for presentation at the workshop. Papers (no more than 8 camera-ready pages, 10 pt font in IEEE transactions format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the workshop (see below). Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. All submission instructions can be found here: submission instructions

Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of IEEE LCN and on IEEE Xplore.

Poster papers are an opportunity to present initial results and obtain feedback on on-going research. We also welcome submissions for demonstrations that showcase original research, practical implementations and realistic applications of user mobility and vehicular networks. Poster/demo papers must be restricted to 4 camera-ready pages.

These are the areas of interest for the workshop:
