Paper Submission (and paper-realted video submission, optional)
The paper submission will be done through the Papercept System; see the Paper Submission page for details.

For each submitted paper, authors can submit a paper-related video, which should be submitted in a single file with the extension mpeg, mpg or mp4. Video submission is optional; see Video Submission page for details.

Best Paper Awards
Best paper(s) will be awarded at the Conference.

Journal Special Issue
A Special Issue of the "IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems" will be dedicated to publish extended and improved versions of selected papers of ITSC 2010. Selected papers will undergo the IEEE Transactions on ITS intensive review process as submitted journal regular papers do, and being selected is not a guarantee for acceptance.
