This Summer Training School is jointly organized by the COST Action IC0906 on Wireless Networking for Moving Objects (WiNeMO) and the MedHocNet 2012 Workshop.
The aim of the school will give an overview of the research and technology trends in the field of Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) and their potential in supporting the future of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
Ten lectures in three days will cover aspects related to the theory of transportation systems and traffic control, models for handling networked vehicle movement in intelligent environments, standards and protocols enabling vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, safety and security issues, and vehicular networking applications. Many lectures will include the exposition of case studies and the lessons learned from real-life deployments. Demonstration of simulation environment for VANETs is also offered. The interesting topic of Content Proliferation and Caching as it applies, not only to vehicular networks, but also to all Future Internet Architectures will be addressed as well.
All lectures will be given in a relaxing environment inducing learning by renowned academics actively working in the field.
*The WiNeMO COST action is offering up to 10 Grants of 800 EUR to participants hosted by its member countries (based on budget availability).*
