Call for Papers: SSMLS 2020 - 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Smart & Sustainable Mobility & Logistics in Smart Cities (at COMPSAC 2020)
Goal of the workshop:
The workshop - which will take place in Madrid, Spain on July 13-17, 2020 - aims to foster cooperation among practitioners and researchers in order to exchange the latest industrial experience and research ideas on the development of products and services for smart and sustainable mobility and logistics in Smart Cities.
Urban mobility is one of the toughest challenges we all face today, as existing mobility systems are not smart and sustainable enough to cope with the increasing demand. These issues are true for both passenger and freight mobility. In addition, mobility needs are evolving. Changing travel habits, demand for services to increase convenience, speed and predictability, mobility-as-a-service and e-freight are emerging as new mobility paradigms. Planning and decision-making is evolving toward a more evidence-based approach, as well as evolving customer expectations toward individualization and sustainability will require mobility service innovation as well as business model transformation.
Scope of the workshop:
Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of Smart Cities, City Logistics, Sustainable Transportation and Sharing Mobility are invited to discuss state of the art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies and techniques.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cooperative intelligent transportation systems
- Road transport automation
- Electric mobility
- Maps and travel planning
- Mobility modelling
- Behaviour change approaches
- Travel demand estimation and modelling
- Evidence-based planning and decision-making
- Big Data and analytics in transport
- New Business models in mobility and logistics
- Blockchain and trusted network for mobility and logistics
Likely participants: ICT and Smart City researchers are called to participate and exchange ideas and techniques.
Workshop papers can be up to 6 pages in length, without additional charge. There is also an option to extend the paper by up to 2 extra pages by paying additional charges.
