Call for Papers


The incorporation of information and communication technologies within vehicles and transportation infrastructure will revolutionize the way we travel today. The enabling technologies are intended to realize the frameworks that will spur an array of applications and use cases in the domain of road safety, traffic efficiency, and driver’s assistance. These applications will allow dissemination and gathering of useful information among vehicles and between transportation infrastructure and vehicles in pursuance of assisting people to travel safely and comfortably.  Although, transportation systems are evolving towards intelligent transportation systems, they face critical challenges and need to be addressed to emerge as Intelligent Vehicular Technologies (IVT).

Therefore, European Alliance for Innovation (EAI) has taken a step towards the realization of Future Intelligent Vehicular Technologies and invite both academic and industrial research community by organizing Future 5V conference in Guimarães, Portugal. Future 5V is an annual international conference by EAI (European Alliance for Innovation) and co-sponsored by Springer. Future 5V welcomes research articles in field of Vehicular networks, communications, software solutions, and artificial inteligence aproaches, covering theory and practice in the after mentioned field of study.

Intetain 2018 is part of the 4th annual Smart City 360˚Summit, promoting multidisciplinary scientific collaboration to solve complex societal, technological and economic problems of emerging Smart Cities.
