The 82nd IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC2015-Fall) will be hosted later this month in one of America’s most historic and culturally-rich cities: Boston. Delegates can immerse themselves in numerous significant historical sites following the Freedom Trail, strolling Quincy Market/Fanueil Hall, Boston Harbor, Bunker Hill, USS Constitution, the Boston Commons, and Fenway Park, or alternatively follow the footsteps of Bell to the birth place of the phone or Marconi and the location of the first wireless transmission in North America. Boston and the surrounding New England area is also one of the premier high technology regions in the Nation and the World, with hundreds of companies and dozens of universities calling this area home. Consequently, the theme for VTC2015-Fall is very fitting: Innovation Meets Tradition.
Connected vehicles, mobile networks and applications, wireless communications, and vehicular systems – we truly live in a highly mobile world, where today's society is becoming ever increasingly reliant on these technologies for supporting a plethora of essential day-to-day operations. With this growing demand for vehicular technologies and applications, we are also beginning to experience numerous technical challenges that require innovative solutions in order to enable the continuation of this growth.
A truly varied and exciting program has been assembled for VTC2015-Fall. There are 74 oral technical sessions of high-quality papers from around the world to be presented by international experts, accompanied by three poster sessions presenting recent results of the latest vehicular, mobile, and wireless technologies. In a new development for VTC, twenty-six short papers will be presented in both 3-minute “elevator-pitch” oral presentation and poster presentation formats. Three industry tracks are taking place: automotive technologies; 5G and future wireless technologies; and autonomous systems & connected vehicles.
The conference is supported by gold-level patrons and exhibitors MediaTek and Analog Devices, bronze-level patron TELUS, workshop patron and exhibitor National Instruments, and exhibitors Azimuth Systems, BeeCube, and MathWorks.
VTC always provides an opportunity to discover the latest ideas and research findings in vehicular technology. We hope that you will be able to join us to brainstorm and share ideas with colleagues, and to foster research collaborations and friendships that will increase and grow even beyond the conference.
