Welcome Message

We are pleased to welcome you to the 4th Annual NSERC DIVA Workshop, held in Ottawa, Canada. This Workshop aims to provide DIVA research members and its private and public sector partners with a venue to interact with each other, disseminate and share state-of-the-art research on vehicular networks, intelligent transportation systems and wireless mobile ad hoc networking.

Following the success of the previous two NSERC-DIVA workshops that were held on September 9th, 2011, on August 30-31, 2012, and on November 12-13, 2013, this-year workshop will consist of two days, which allow graduate students and researchers more time for presentations and fruitful interactions. As established long these years, we will have Three awards this year: Student Paper Award, Best Student Poster Award, and Best Student Presentation Award. A committee will be formed to select the winners, and the announcement will be made during the workshop.

We are pleased to announce that in this fourth edition of the NSERC DIVA Workshop we managed to attract several industry partner representatives who will talk on a plethora of topics related to vehicular networks and their applications. We would like to thank all DIVA members for their participation and their research contributions, as well as our industry and government partners for their guidance and continuous support since the start of this Network. We also would like to thank our main sponsor NSERC and Roger Delisle (NSERC Program Officer), all our sponsors from the industry and governmental agencies and Terry Todd (DIVA BoD Chair) for the generosity and for sharing their advices and experience in handling the issues that arise in the strategic network organization.
