IEEE International Workshop on Electric and Autonomous Vehicle Software (EAVS 2020)


The automobile industry is being transformed by three-dimensional disruptions, being from internal combustion engine to the electric engine, from the human driver to the autonomous driving and from the ownership business model to the mobility as a service. The future electric and autonomous vehicle is a moving data center connected to the cloud brains with the 5G network. The transformation will not only reshape the automobile industry in the coming decade with the trillion-dollar new market opportunities but also offer humanity a better future with more clean energy consumption, cheaper and safer transportation services and more efficient use of the urban infrastructure. This is the next big thing for software researchers, engineers, and industry players.

The International Workshop on Electric and Autonomous Vehicle Software at QRS creates a unique venue for the researchers, engineers, industry players and policy makers to present the latest advancements and innovations in the theoretical work, open source projects, software applications and regulation work in the electric and autonomous vehicle software.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • Theoretical Study on autonomous driving safety, explainable AI, AI ethics
  • Theoretical Study on the vehicle’s software functional safety and safety of the intended functionality
  • Computer vision algorithm safety measurement and certification
  • V2X information model for distributed sensor fusion
  • Software defined electric vehicle system architecture
  • High performance operating systems, virtualization, micro service frameworks, data services and messaging
  • High performance telemetry and data processing frameworks
  • Trust computing in the vehicle software
  • Safe and secure programming languages and practices in the mission critical in vehicle software
  • High availability and reliability software architecture for the connected vehicle
  • Data driven software quality assurance for the electric and autonomous vehicle
  • Software defined network in the connected vehicle


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at

The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to eight pages, including the title of the paper, the name and affiliation of each author, a 150-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to four pages) are also allowed.

Authors must follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare their papers. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Arrangements are being made to publish selected accepted papers in reputable journals. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site.
