With recent advances in computing, communication, control, and sensing, vehicular networks are envisioned as a promising paradigm to achieve breakthroughs in transportation safety, efficiency, and sustainability. In particular, efficient data dissemination in vehicular networks is a key enabler for implementing future innovative intelligent transportation systems (ITS), such as intersection control [1], platooning [2], and vehicular localization [3]. However, intrinsic characteristics of vehicular networks including highly dynamic network topology, sparse distribution of infrastructures, high mobility of vehicles, real-time traffic information, and heterogeneous 45wireless communication environments, make it challenging to optimize the utilization of network resources to improve service quality and enhance system scalability.
