|Article by VTS Conference Committee|
The IEEE VTS Conference Committee invites the submission of proposals to host VTC during the fall season in 2020 and 2021. The fall iteration of VTC is normally held in North America, so submissions should be in keeping with that tradition.
But note that all proposals, even those from other areas, will be considered.
Individuals, groups or organizations that want to host an IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference should first contact VTS VP—Conferences J. R. Cruz to express their interest.
The initial proposal should include a description of the location, and why it would be an attractive venue to visit; possible dates; a plan for the organizing committee; potential theme; local accommodations; and other travel information.
Any cost benefits or sponsorship potential should also be mentioned. Pictures of the proposed location are encouraged, as well as a list of recent and upcoming conferences of a similar nature to VTC in the area.
Following initial discussions, promising candidates will be sent a proposal packet to further prepare for formal consideration by the Conference Committee and, if approved, for final acceptance by the VTS Board of Governors.
