Due to the onging COVID-19 pandemic, For us as conference organizers, the health and safety of participants are always our primary consideration. Our conference committee has decided to change SoCAV to be held fully online.

2021 International Symposium on Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (SoCAV 2021) will be held in online during April 19-21, 2021. The conference is dedicated to providing the platform and opportunities for researchers, scientists, engineers and scholars to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas and research in the common research field of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, and to discuss practical issues, the challenges encountered as well as the solutions adopted.

The SoCAV 2021 conference committee is excited to invite authors and scholars from all over the world to participate in this significant conference, to enhance our knowledge and create new knowledge to help promote the advances and changes of the joint academic researches.


SoCAV 2021 conference is now in the process of soliciting submissions of original and innovative papers. Authors are encouraged to submit original and previously unpublished papers. The submitted papers must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere, and must not be submitted to any other conferences before and during the SoCAV 2021 review process.

Submission Methods:

1, Submission via online submission system.

2, Send your manuscripts as an attachment to conference email: socav@iaeeee.org.

*Any questions during your submission process, please contact us via socav@iaeeee.org.


SoCAV 2021 will be held online, participants are welcomed to join in this online event as a listener without submitting a research paper for review.
