W1: "The First International Workshop on IPv6-based Vehicular Networks (Vehi6)"
June 3, 9:30 - Room 1
Organizers: José Santa, Jong-Hyouk Lee
Description:Wireless vehicular networking for cooperative ITS is one of the most interesting and active research topics, which requires vital efforts from both the industry and the academia. IPv6 has been acknowledged as a masterpiece to support services such as traffic efficiency, leisure applications and non-time critical safety services. In this frame, the objective of this workshop is to provide a forum to exchange ideas, present results, share real experiences or exploring the current state of the art, on the application of IPv6 in vehicular network architectures, prototypes, test beds or commercial products in the field of intelligent transportation systems. Original papers addressing either scientific or engineering aspects about IPv6 integration in wireless vehicular networking for cooperative ITS are welcome. Papers describing or evaluating approaches for network and facilities/middleware levels are especially considered.

W2: "Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles"
June 3, 14:30 - Room 3
Organizers: Cristina Olaverri Monreal, Rosaldo Rossetti
Description: The Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (HFIV’12) aims to foster discussion on issues related to the analysis of human factors in the design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles (IV) technologies, in a wide spectrum of applications and in different dimensions. It is expected to build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate interactions among the technical and scientific communities, practitioners and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be further developed and enhanced. IV technologies have experienced a great improvement in the last couple of decades, turning vehicles into more interactive counterparts in transportation and mobility systems. However, the impact of such technologies on traffic awareness for the driver and driver’s behaviour towards improving driving performance and reducing road accidents still demands proper tools and approaches. While the feasibility of incorporating new technology-driven functionality to vehicles has played a central role in the automotive design, not always safety issues related to interaction with the new in-vehicle systems have been taken into consideration. Additionally, other aspects are equally important and need to be analysed, such as the impact technologies that support specific driving functions play on the overall driving task, as well as their impact on the transportation system overall performance. Besides current industrial achievements that feature today’s vehicles with a number of important driving assistance systems, the perspective of autonomous driving vehicles populating urban environment pose even more challenging issues.
Thus, the information and functionality that relies on new ways of communication has to be presented in a non-intrusive way that complies with specific design requirements. A system that guarantees efficiency of use, comfort and user satisfaction can contribute to a more conscious driving behaviour that would directly result from the adoption of IV technologies.

W6: "Workshop on Ambient intelligence for tomorrow's intelligent transportation systems"
June 3, 15:00 - Room 4
Organizers: Matthew Fullerton and Cristina Beltrán
Description: Tomorrow's ITS will employ ever-more advanced control algorithms, sensor setups and vehicular inter-networking across diverse network media and devices. In addition, the role of the vehicle will change drastically from being a receiver (e.g. geographic radio data over RDS-TMC) or passive provider (e.g. floating car data) of information to being an active, communicating participant in the traffic system that involves not only the road operator but also other drivers. The session will examine the realization and evaluation of such systems at both the small diverse personal technologies) and large (societal change) levels. New planning and evaluation strategies are required, placing new demands on field tests, modeling and simulation tools. In the session we will explore how modeling and simulation work is rising to the challenge, and how close we really are to the critical mass of enabling technologies that will see these systems in operation.
Speakers are drawn from organizational, psychological, operations and engineering disciplines. The workshop is organized and supported by Technische Universität München and SICE as part of the EU FP7 project "Complex socio-technical system in ambient intelligence" (SOCIONICAL), which is extending complexity science modeling methods and tools for future socio-technical systems in transportation and evacuation scenarios.
