IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) 2018 will provide a platform for world-leading scholars in the vehicular networking and communication research community to showcase their state-of-the-art research, and faciliate interactions between the academia and the industry. The 2018 edition of the conference marks the tenth edition of a series of the annual events since 2009, which witnesses the development of the V2X systems since its infancy and the realization of fully autonomous vehicles and communication-coordinated vehicle platoons. The event is sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS).

This year's conference will be held in Taipei, Taiwan
