VEHICULAR ANALYTICS 2025 - The Second International Conference on Vehicular Systems

October 26, 2025 - October 30, 2025

VEHICULAR ANALYTICS 2025: Call for Papers

All traffic (terrestrial, aerial, maritime, underwater) has started experiencing hybrid vehicles (manned and unmanned) sharing the same infrastructure and facing similar situations. Moreover, both kinds of vehicles are exposed to critical and sudden events (incidents, crowds, pedestrians) as well as long planned decisions (paths, speed, lights, predictive events). It is essential that real-time information is shared by traffic vehicles in a secure and trusted way, regardless of whether they are autonomous or operated by a human.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based decisions, Datasets and Deep learning-based traffic patterns, 5G/6G-based communication, Blockchain-based security, Cloud-based computing, and Cognitive approaches have led to advanced driving assistance systems, guidance, and safety use of the common transportation infrastructure.

VEHICULAR ANALYTICS 2025 continues a series of events dedicated to analyzing solutions and challenges concerning dedicated frameworks, architectures, applications, software/hardware, tools and apps, experimental systems, and lessons learned.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.

INSTRUCTION FOR THE AUTHORS

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.

Publisher: XPS (Xpert Publishing Services)

Prints available at Curran Associates, Inc.
How to submit to appropriate indexes.

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Contribution types

  • regular papers [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • short papers (work in progress) [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • ideas: two pages [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • extended abstracts: two pages [in the proceedings, digital library]

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost.

Helpful information for paper formatting for MS Word can be found here.

There is a community provided LaTeX template: the CTAN package iaria (with full IARIA formatting rules, including IARIA citation style, but for providing citation style it is tightly bound to pdflatex+biblatex+biber). In addition, there is also iaria-lite (not bound to pdflatex+biblatex+biber, but compatible with any TeX stack; thus, it cannot provide the IARIA citation formattings, but only the titlepage and content-related IARIA formatting rules). Based on the iaria package, there is a minimal working example as Overleaf template. When you are using the LaTeX templates, please still adhere to the additional editorial rules.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.
