Call For Papers

The Fourth International Workshop on Intelligent Public Transports – Toward the Next Generation of Urban Mobility

(co-located with IEEE ITSC 2018) November 4, Hawaii (USA)

Today, everything is being built up taking advantage in sensor’s data. Public Transport is not an exception. By being highly dependent on the dynamics of the human behavior (drivers, passengers and other travelers), it is intrinsically connected to the data derived from them as well. In the past, this was completely utopic. Nowadays, Data-driven transportation research aims to answer multiple relevant questions such as: Where are we going? Where do we want to go? Which are the current trends? How can we explore these data to improve the public transportation? Which can be done to improve the schedule coverage? How about the taxi dispatching? The bus lanes? The stands/stops location? The subway’s timetables? Preventive Maintainance? The Planning and The Control of Public Transportation in general?

This workshop intends to ignite the discussion on where and how are we going on this emerging topic by bringing together researchers with different backgrounds that share an interest for these topics. Our last edition held a full room (40 attendants) and a total of 10 research works (50% acceptance rate) + 1 Keynote which resulted on a fruitful discussion, as well as on further collaborations.

Workshop scope (not restrictive):

  • intelligent systems and technology for real-time PT service monitoring, control, and operational management;
  • advanced traveler information systems using homogeneous/heterogeneous data sources;
  • crowdsourcing and “human as sensors” in PT design and operation;
  • data management and data fusion for PT systems;
  • privacy issues in using PT data;
  • PT planning and management using big data;
  • human mobility analytics and travel behavior modeling using PT data;
  • machine learning and big data applications in modeling PT systems;
  • multimodal PT systems network planning and service synchronization;
  • anomaly detection and efficient response strategies in PT operation;
  • resilience-oriented design and real-time disruption response strategies in PT systems;
  • PT network resilience analysis and mitigation measures;
  • automatic assessment and/or evaluation on the PT reliability;
  • ubiquitous/pervasive PT technologies/policies;
  • intelligent mobility models/policies for urban environments;
  • autonomous vehicles application in PT systems;
  • complex systems applications in public transport;
  • social network analysis of public transport users.

Important Dates:

  • Workshop Paper Submission: April 15, 2018
  • Workshop day: November 4th, 2018
  • Notification of acceptance: July 2, 2018
  • Final paper submission deadline (Workshop Paper): September 9th, 2018
  • Conference days: 4-7 November 2018
