The 2012 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV12), sponsored by the IEEE ITS Society, was held in Alcala de Henares, Spain. The IV12 call for papers led to 300 submissions and 1 special session proposal. 194 submissions of these were selected for publication in a rigorous review process conducted by the Program Chair, Meng Lu, and two Program Co-Chairs Matthew Barth and Ljubo Vlacic, supported by 44 members in the International Program Committee. The main symposium is characterized by a single session format so that all attendees remain in a single room for multilateral communications in an informal atmosphere. 339 participants from 31 countries led by Germany, Japan, France, USA, Spain, and China attended the main symposium. 143 attendees were present at the workshops, and 128 participants experienced the rides in demonstration vehicles. A Selection Committee composed of 5 international experts from academia and industry has presented best paper awards for the best oral contributions to Martin Liebner (First Prize) and Maximilian Muffert (Second Prize), the best PhD paper awards to Stephanie Lefevre (First Prize) and Michael Aeberhard (Second Prize), as well as the best poster contributions to Quan Tran (First Prize) and Feihu Zhang (Second Prize).
