2014 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)

Vehicular networking and communication systems is an area of significant importance in our increasingly connected and mobile world. Effective vehicular connectivity techniques can significantly enhance efficiency of travel, reduce traffic incidents and improve safety, mitigate the impact of congestion, and overall provide a more comfortable experience. Towards this goal, the 2014 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) seeks to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in vehicular networking technologies, and their applications.

This year's conference will be held at the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, the world's largest computer museum, located in Paderborn, Germany. Get more information.
