It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 11th ACM Symposium on Design and Analysis of Intelligent Vehicular Networks and Applications (DIVANet’21). This year, DIVANet will exceptionally be held online due to the COVID-19, from November 22nd to November 26th, 2021.

Over the years, DIVANet has established itself as a leading venue where some of the best research works in the area of vehicular networking, vehicular autonomous systems, vehicular autonomous systems, and vehicular applications are presented and discussed. This year, DIVANet continues its tradition of providing researchers and practitioners with a venue to discuss and share the latest research achievements on new trends and emerging vehicular technologies, new trends and emerging technologies, such as Internet of vehicles, connected and autonomous vehicles, vehicular edge and cloud computing, smart transportation systems, and smart cities.

The call for papers has attracted a large number of high-quality submissions worldwide. Every paper submitted had been peer-reviewed by at least three referees from the Technical Program Committee. The featured papers span from a wide range of topics related to vehicle-to-everything communication, edge computing for vehicular services and applications, autonomous vehicles, and security in vehicular autonomous systems. Moreover, the program this year will feature one tutorial titled “Edge Computing for Mobile Internet of Things”.

We would like to thank the authors for their contributions and the Technical Program Committee members that reviewed the submitted papers. We would further like to thank the Steering Committee for their guidance and support with the advice during the planning of the symposium and ACM production of the proceedings. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors, ACM and ACM SIGSIM for their continued support of these successful symposia. Finally, we want to recognize and remember Professor Mirela Notare for her great professional career and her collaboration with the DIVANet symposium.

We hope that you will find this program interesting and thought-provoking and that the symposium will provide you with a valuable opportunity to share ideas with other researchers and practitioners from institutions around the world.
