Table of Contents

Now in its 13th year, VNC has been the primary venue for people interested in vehicular communication to meet.

When VNC 2020 had to move online, we had high hopes to run VNC 2021 at least in a hybrid format so that at least parts of the community could meet in Ulm, Germany, and enjoy the conference on-site. Unfortunately, the course of global pandemic development requires us to move to a pure online format once more. Reasons for this step are that Germany is in the middle of a fourth wave with unclear predictions for autumn but mostly that we collected feedback from our community and learned that a majority of prospective participants and authors would be blocked from on-site attendance either due to international trans-continental travel restrictions or due to organizational travel policies.

We therefore decided that IEEE VNC 2021 will be exclusively online and we are committed to optimize the conference for the best online experience possible. Building on our experience from last year (which received a lot of positive comments), we will try to enhance this even more and hope to see many of you in our virtual conference place in More information on the session format and timing will follow soon.
