10.30a Coffee Break

11.00a Panel session on “Heterogeneous Vehicular Networks” (Moderator: Falko Dressler)

A future trend of vehicular networks is the move away from focusing on just a single technology and towards designing systems that can make use of multiple different technologies, creating heterogeneous vehicular networks. Looking into the literature, however, the underlying assumptions, concepts, and even the goals of such approaches are very fuzzy. In an effort to move this research area forward by clarifying the foundations, identifying commonalities and differences of existing approaches, and outlining future research directions, a working group was formed at the 2013 Dagstuhl Seminar on Vehicular Networks. This panel aims to push the limits even further and to discuss open challenges and opportunities in this field.
