Welcome to the 2nd International Workshop on Vehicular Communications and Networking (VECON 2012), to be held in Barcelona, Spain, on 8th October 2012.
The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss recent advances in the area of vehicular wireless communications and networking. Significant efforts are being carried out by industry, academia and government agencies to improve safety, decrease fuel consumption, and increase the capacity of existing roadways by exploiting vehicular communications and networking technologies. These technologies, which are generally referred to as VANET (Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks) or by the more general term VCS (Vehicular Communication Systems), include vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-vehicle communications and can be based on short- and medium-range communication as well as on cellular systems. The development and deployment of VCS are also considered one of the most critical issues for the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) industry.
