ACM CarSys 2017

The Second ACM International Workshop on Connected and Automated Vehicle Mobility

A Workshop of MobiCom 2017, Snowbird, Utah, USA (October 16-20, 2017)

CarSys 2017 seeks to present innovative and significant research on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of intelligent vehicular computing, communication and control systems, applications, and services. The key themes of this workshop are two-fold:

1. Connected Vehicles: Based on short- and medium-range communications as well as on cellular networks, vehicular inter-networking will enable vehicular applications that improve road safety, energy efficiency, optimizes traffic flow, as well as for infotainment purposes.

2. Intelligent Vehicles: As vehicles are equipped with more sensing and computing capabilities, vehicles become more intelligent and are able to accomplish a number of challenging tasks including autonomous driving.

We are currently witnessing the pursuit of high-performing, reliable, scalable, secure, and privacy-preserving connected and automated vehicle technologies, as well as associated mobility services. These ongoing innovations present an extraordinary challenge for the research community. The safety, real-time and security needs of vehicular systems and their application scenarios make the study of these systems both exciting and challenging. Goal-driven inter-disciplinary collaboration among the automotive industry and academic research community is increasingly seen as necessary. Furthermore, the connected and intelligent vehicle research field has been a very active field of research, development, standardization, and field trials. Throughout the world, there are many national and international projects in government, industry, and academia devoted to connected vehicles or autonomous driving vehicles. Many relevant industry standards and consortia are being created to prepare for the maturity of these emerging technologies. CarSys 2017 brings together researchers from these initiatives around the world to chart the way forward in this rapidly evolving field.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Automated/semi-automated vehicles
- Vehicular active safety system
- Information and sensor fusion
- Vehicle perception
- Cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems
- Telematics and vehicle-cloud integration
- Vehicular IoT infrastructure
- V2I / V2V Communication
- Novel technologies for V2X (e.g., LTE-D, VLC, mmWave, TVWS)
- Wireless in-car networks
- Vehicle communication protocol design and network management
- Vehicle to vulnerable road users (VRU, e.g., bicyclists, pedestrians) communications
- Vehicle system architecture and design
- Intelligent vehicle software and computing infrastructure
- Safety and non-safety applications or service
- Applications to improve vehicle driver’s experience, performance, and behavior
- Security, privacy issues and protection mechanisms
- Field operational testing

Submission Instructions
All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Papers must be in PDF format, no longer than 8 pages (double-column), use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates ( and fit properly on US Letter-sized paper (8.5 inch x 11 inch) with reasonable margins. We also strongly encourage the submission of position papers or practice papers with a maximum length of 5 pages (following the ACM Proceedings Templates above). Position papers will generally include preliminary results and are expected to describe highly original ideas, discuss new directions, or generate insightful discussion at the workshop. Practice papers will provide relevant conclusions derived from real-world empirical experiences or industrial research/proof-of-concept projects.
