CALL FOR PAPERS Special Session: Leveraging Data in Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) enabled by Edge and Cloud

5G-IANA partner Vicomtech is organising a Special Session about “Leveraging Data in Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) enabled by Edge and Cloud” in the IEEE ITS Conference 2023.

IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSC 2023) 

24-28 September, 2023

Bilbao, Spain


Special Session: Leveraging Data in Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) enabled by Edge and Cloud


This Special Session will explore the challenges to leverage data in CCAM and the role of Edge and Cloud as key enabling technologies. More specifically, it will focus on how to capture, structure, index, store and share data to enable analytical systems to get valuable insights; how to efficiently balance processing workload and assets in distributed infrastructures; how to transmit data efficiently and reliably; and how to address security and privacy issues. We aim to facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote collaboration to find novel solutions to these problems. By understanding the barriers and solutions to leverage data in CCAM, we can help pave the way for a safer and more efficient transportation system.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Internet of Things (IoT) messaging for CCAM data.
• Data structures and software architectures for CCAM data processing.
• Data analytics, data quality assessment, and visualization tasks at large scale.
• Collaborative and Federated analytics on distributed/decentralized data.
• Edge and Cloud computing for distributed data processing and storage.
• Edge-Cloud continuum integration and orchestration.
• AIOps and microservices platforms for data processing.
• Mobility-aware Edge computing provision and consumption.
• Digital Twins of vehicles.
• Secure/trusted service provisioning for data producers and data consumers.
• Data usage control and ownership management.

Important dates:

May 15, 2023 – Submission deadline
June 30, 2023 – Notification of paper acceptance
July 31, 2023 – Final paper submission deadline

Special Session organizers:

Dr. Gorka Vélez, Vicomtech, Spain.

Dr. Ángel Martín, Vicomtech, Spain.

  • Reporting period: November 2023
  • Award phase: December 2023

The project is calling for SMEs and start-ups from Europe to apply to the program that will allow them to run their automotive network applications on top of the platform provided by the 5G-IANA project making use of 5G connectivity. The 5G-IANA consortium will support its participants to develop and integrate their innovative idea using the 5G-IANA platform, facilitating in parallel the developed Repository of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs).

A “User Guide for Applicants” has been issued by the project where it provides all the information about the Open Call, including the detailed description of the conditions and procedures for applying. The document is available for download here.

Finally, the project organises an Info Day on March 14th to inform potential applicants about the Open Call.

IEEE ICC (International Conference on Communications) is one of two IEEE Communications Society’s flagship conferences (ICC and Globecom). Each year, close to 2.000 attendees from over 70 countries attend IEEE ICC to take advantage of a program which consists of exciting keynote session, robust technical paper sessions, innovative tutorials and workshops, and engaging industry sessions. This 5-day event is known for bringing together audiences from both industry and academia to learn about the latest research and innovations in communications and networking technology, share ideas and best practices, and collaborate on future projects.

This year IEEE ICC 2023 will focus on “Sustainable Communications for Renaissance” and will be held in person between May 28th to June 1st, 2023, in Rome, Italy.

5G-IANA will be present in this conference, presenting the paper “TAILING: Tail Distribution Forecasting of Packet Delays using Quantile Regression Neural Networks”. co-authored by Amr Rizk and that will be published in the IEEE ICC 2023 Conference Proceedings.

5G-IANA contribution to ISO standardisation work

ISO Technical Committee 204 on “Intelligent Transport Systems” has established the new Working Group 20 (WG20) that will focus on “Big Data and Artificial Intelligence supporting ITS” and will work on Intelligent Transport Systems specific use cases.

This Working Group has launched a call for contribution to obtain appropriate ITS specific and AI and/or Big Data relevant input(s) for this standardisation work. Collected inputs will be published in the ISO technical report TR 12786 titled “Intelligent transport systems — Big data and artificial intelligence supporting intelligent transport systems — Use cases”.

In the framework of this call, 5G-IANA project has contributed by proposing a use case named “Federated Learning for Distributed Predictive QoS in ITS”. The goal of the distributed Predictive QoS use case is to derive an up-to-date view of the network status of connected vehicles in ITS and draw predictions with respect to the connectivity performance of these. The result of this use case will support the deployment of advanced ITS services such as cooperative connected automated mobility (CCAM), that rely on underlying connectivity capabilities.

5G-IANA first webinar


5G-IANA’s first webinar took place on November 22nd, 2022. The project’s Technical Coordinator, UBITECH, conducted the first webinar titled “Bridging the gap between the 5G-IANA platform developers and the use case NetApp/VNF developers”.

This first webinar was open to Consortium members and was specifically designed to support the partners and UC developers (AF/NF developers-SMEs) to understand how to access the AOEP platform. The goal of this webinar was to get feedback from UC experimenters to understand the needs, and to potentially integrate valuable feedback and suggestions into the actual AOEP design.

This event marks the beginning of a series of 5G-IANA webinars that will start with the New Year and will address key aspects of the project. Webinars will be open for participation and will be announced on the project’s website and social media. Once performed these will be also disseminated through the project’s communication channels.

5G-IANA Plenary Meeting (23-24 November 2022)

On November 23rd– 24th the 5G-IANA consortium physically met again for a two-day Plenary Meeting and was warmly welcomed to the city of Torino by our partner LINKS Foundation – Fondazione LINKS.

On the first day of the meeting, Work Package Leaders presented to the Consortium the work already addressed, the current status of the activities and the roadmap for the upcoming months. The second day was time to review the project’s seven Use Cases, the testbeds, and the plan for the engagement of third parties.

Furthermore, the consortium had the great opportunity to take part at the demos performed by our Italian partners: LINKS Foundation – Fondazione LINKS presented to the consortium the On-Board Unit (OBU) and Road-Side Unit (RSU) they have specifically developed for the project, while Bylogix introduced to the Consortium the car that will be used on Use Case 2 of the project.

Very fruitful discussions took place during the presentations that provided excellent feedback and resulted in specific actions towards project planning and execution.

Thank you to all 5G-IANA partners and a special thanks to LINKS for your warm hosting!
