Abstract: In the last two decades, several concepts are derived from the internet of things (IoT) integrated with artificial intelligence (AI). From efficient communication networks, smart homes, smart cities, smart health services, the artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) is opening new ventures for scientists and researchers. Considering the rapid increase in the number of communicating vehicles and the tremendous amount of data exchanged by these vehicles, intelligent transportation system (ITS) with vehicle to vehicle (V2V), vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle to everything (V2X), AI and machine learning (ML) based solutions can also provide cheap and efficient solutions in future communication networks. Due to its self-sustainable nature with self-governing and independent decision-making capabilities appeared as a possible alternative to achieve the aim of full autonomous communication systems. Our aim in organizing this workshop is to explore intelligent communication network technologies to manage the available resources smartly and efficiently. For this workshop section, we are soliciting high-quality articles covering the topic related to Intelligent vehicular communication technologies and IoV concepts with original results and conceptual study. The aim is to bring the novel ideas, concepts, open challenges, issues, from the researchers working in the said domain.
