The Fourth ACM International Workshop on
Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET 2007)

Paper Submission Instructions

VANET invites submission of manuscripts that present original research results. Submitted papers must be unpublished, and the same or substantially similar papers must not be currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must present the paper at VANET 2007. The Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM Press and distributed at the workshop; copies of the Proceedings will also be available for sale from ACM after the workshop.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee through a double-blind review process, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. Before submitting your paper, please check the description of the scope in the Call for Papers. If you are unsure whether your work falls within the scope of VANET, please contact the Program Chairs at

Papers must be submitted electronically through the EDAS system. The complete list of authors' names must be inserted when registering the paper on the EDAS system. However, authors’ names can not be inserted in the paper due to the double-blind review process. In order to access the EDAS system you need to register first. Authors should check if they already have a login on the EDAS system; otherwise, they must create it before submitting the paper. If you are not already registered to EDAS please follow the instructions on the EDAS registration page, where you can login, or you can create a new EDAS user account.


Formatting your Paper

Please be sure your paper is formatted properly for submission. In particular, please note the following paper formatting requirements:
  • Your submission must be in PDF format. Whatever text processor or formatter you use to write your paper (LaTeX, Microsoft Word, FrameMaker, etc.), please convert the output to PDF before submission.
  • Your submission must be correctly formatted to fit on U.S. "Letter" size paper, which is 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall. Please be sure you have a reasonable margin (such as 1 inch) on all edges (top, bottom, left, and right) of each page.
  • Paper submissions must be limited to 10 pages, including all figures and references, and must include an abstract of 100 – 150 words. Either single-column or double-column format is fine for submissions.
  • The font size used in the text of your submission must not be smaller than 11 points.
  • As described above, all papers will be judged through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Papers must not reveal the authors' identities in the paper or in the submitted PDF file. This means that before submission, you must remove from the paper the authors' names, authors' affiliations, acknowledgements of funding sources, etc. Also, be careful how you refer to your own prior work in the paper. For example, do not describe your own prior work with phrases like:
"In prior work, we presented a routing protocol that ..."

Instead, refer to your work in the third person, such as

"In prior work, Smith presented a routing protocol that ..."
  • We must be able to print your paper once it is submitted. Due to the large variety of systems available for formatting papers and producing PDF, this is not always possible for some systems. To maximize the chances that your paper will print correctly, please use only standard printer fonts (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.) or standard TeX Computer Modern fonts; other fonts may be used but must be included in the PDF file. The use of standard printer fonts is strongly preferred over TeX fonts, if possible.
  • The paper must be able to print clearly on standard black-and-white printers. Reviewers are not required to view your paper in color, and the final version of all accepted papers will be published in only black-and-white in the workshop Proceedings.
