             Special Session on Challenges in Future Vehicular ADHOC Networks

Challenges in Future Vehicular ADHOC Networks Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETS) are non-infrastructure based networks that do not rely on a central administration for communication between vehicles. In a Vehicular Ad Hoc Network, the overlapping transmission range of each vehicle ensures a unified and common channel for communication between the vehicles. The flexibility of VANETS widely opens the door to myriad applications that contribute to the safety and comfort of the vehicle’s passengers. Unfortunately, this versatility does not come for free: there is a large number of computer communication challenges that are awaiting researches and engineers that are serious about the implementations and deployments of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks. Throughout the world, there are many national/international projects in government, industry, and academia devoted to vehicular ad-hoc networks. The goal of this special session is to explore developments and current/future challenges in the area of vehicular ad-hoc networks. Enabled by short- to medium-range communication systems (vehicle-vehicle or vehicle-roadside), the vision of vehicular networks includes real-time and safety applications, sharing the wireless channel with mobile applications from a large, decentralized array of commercial service providers. Vehicular safety applications include collision and other safety warnings. Non-safety applications include real-time traffic congestion and routing information, high-speed tolling, mobile infotainment, and many others. Creating high-performance, highly scalable, robust and secure vehicular networking technologies presents an extraordinary challenge to the wireless research community.ه Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

●Architecture of Vehicular networks Protocol design (low-power, multi-channel)
●Routing and MAC protocols Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Roadside
●Channel Modeling Security and Privacy
●Cooperative Aspects Cross-layer Optimization Techniques
●Safety and Commercial applications Scalability and Availability issues in Vehicular Networks
●Mobility and Traffic Models VANETs and Sensor Networks
