International Symposium on Transportation Data & Modelling (ISTDM2023)

The 2023 International Symposium on Transportation Data and Modelling (ISTDM2023) will be held at the JRC in Ispra (Italy) on June 19-22, 2023.  

The convergency of technological, social and political trends (e.g. connectivity, automation, electrification, quantum computing, blockchains, new vehicle concepts, new social attitudes towards the provision and consumption of transport opportunities, new policy actions to fight or adapt to the climate change) provides a unique opportunity to rethink the transportation system and make it safer, cleaner, more efficient and more equitable in the next few decades ahead.

Crucial role of society and science

Whether this opportunity will materialise or not will however strongly depend on the capability of policy, industry, academia and citizens to work together towards a common goal. Will our society be apt to the challenge? The role of the scientific community in this process will be crucial. Decision-making to tackle climate-change and fighting against the Covid-19 pandemics have both counted on the evidence provide and the tools made available by the scientific community. The same must happen in the transport sector otherwise the risk to lose the one in a century opportunity to disrupt it will likely be lost.

Driving transformation of transport

In order to drive the transformation of the transport sector models and data are needed on the one hand to anticipate possible impacts of new mobility solution, and on the other hand to define the requirements of the future transport system to achieve the sustainable development goals set by our society. In particular, approaches to manage the ever increasing transport complexity in urban contexts with the interaction between traditional services any new mobility options are very much needed.

ISTDM2023 wants to contribute to this process by offering scientists a forum to discuss progresses and challenges to properly model and manage the future transport systems. It also wants to give the scientists the opportunity to meet policy members to understand their needs to shape future legislations in the transport field.

Submission of abstracts

Submission of original contributions in the form of extended abstracts on the following topics are particularly welcome:

  • Data collection and processing
    • Innovative data collection approaches
    • Big Data and Open Data initiatives (including safety applications)
    • The contribution of machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Innovative research methodologies
    • Using robots and scaled-down vehicles to design the future transport system
    • Virtual testing methods for new mobility solutions validation
  • Challenges in urban mobility modelling
    • Mobility as a Service and complex trip-chains including micromobility
    • Travel demand in the future mobility landscape
    • The interaction of different modes (including safety aspects)
    • Enhanced demand and traffic management
    • Transport electrification
    • Urban logistics
    • Evolving transport impact on energy consumption
  • Challenges in extra-urban transport modelling
    • Traffic flow theory in the presence of different levels of vehicles’ connectivity and automation
    • Transport safety and requirements for future systems
    • Freight transportation
    • Evolving transport impact on energy consumption
    • Vehicle-infrastructure integration

Contributions on other topics relevant to the scope of the International Symposium on Transportation Data and Modelling will also be accepted.

Following the review process, a booklet of abstracts will be edited and published as European Commission Report.

In addition, presenters will be offered the possibility of submitting a journal version of their contributions to a Special Issue on Transportation Data and Modelling in a specialised journal.

Registration

Registration will open soon.
