The workshop on Networking protocols and standards for mobility (NPSM)

Co-organized by: IEEE ICNP'24: The 32st IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols The papers will be published in IEEE Xplore as part of the ICNP proceedings


The emergence of vehicular networks has revolutionized the transportation sector, promising enhanced safety, efficiency, and connectivity. However, as the deployment of these networks becomes more widespread, it brings forth a myriad of challenges and opportunities in terms of communication protocols. Hence, we propose a workshop focusing on network protocols for vehicles, aimed at fostering collaboration between industrial stakeholders and academic researchers. This workshop will serve as a platform for industrial experts to elucidate the requirements and challenges encountered during the deployment of new standards in vehicular networks. Additionally, the workshop will provide a forum for academic researchers to showcase their latest advancements in the field, offering innovative solutions to address the identified challenges. By facilitating dialogue and knowledge exchange between these two communities, the workshop aims to accelerate the development and adoption of robust and efficient network protocols tailored for vehicular environments.

Call for Papers

We welcome submissions of original research, work-in-progress, and proof of concepts describing original ideas and presenting new directions, covering a broad spectrum of topics related to vehicular network protocols, including, but not limited to:

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal. Paper submissions should adhere to the IEEE Conference formatting requirements with double columns and the font size must be 10 points. The length of the final paper with all its content (including references) must not exceed 6 pages. Papers must include the author’s names and affiliations for single-blind peer reviewing by the PC. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop.
