​*The First International Workshop on Intelligent Transportation and
Connected Vehicles Technologies (ITCVT 2018) *
*​​Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018*
*​​in conjunction with*
*The Fifth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2018)*


Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) plays a significant role in smart
cities, with the future being the Autonomous Vehicle (AV). Such
transportation systems integrated with today’s advanced vehicular and
wireless network technologies will play a crucial role in improving the
quality and delivery performance of diversified vehicular services. There
are many unprecedented challenges that arise from Intelligent
Transportation and Connected Vehicles Technologies (ITCVT). These include
configuring vehicular cloud services to user requirements, connected
vehicle security issues related to connectivity, big data analytics for
intelligent transportation, vehicular cloud computing and service
composition, and power management for smart electric vehicles. There is
also a need for customized communication technology for the integrated
solutions of connected vehicles and smart city sub-systems. The aim of the
First International Workshop on ITCVT is to bring together engineers,
researchers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications
in the field of intelligent transportation and vehicle technology.
Participants are invited to present and discuss recent developments and
challenges in ITCVT systems. This workshop focuses on innovative
applications, tools and frameworks in all technology areas related to
connected vehicles in the context of smart cities and other application
domains. Papers describing original novel work and advanced prototypes,
systems and tools are encouraged.
Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all
major areas, which include, but not limited to:

* Autonomous Vehicles and Automated Driving
* Big Data Analytics for Intelligent Transportation
* Intelligent Infrastructure and Guidance Systems
* Cooperative Driving and Traffic Management
* Connected Services
