Call for Papers

  The 5th International Conference on Transportation Information and Safety (ICTIS 2019), sponsored by China Communications and Transportation Association (CCTA), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE), organized by Wuhan University of Technology, will be held during July 14-17, 2019, in Liverpool, UK.

  We would like to invite you to submit contributing papers with the research topics regarding transportation information and safety to the ICTIS 2019. The accepted papers will be published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI) citation. In addition, selected papers based on the fit to the theme will also be recommended for publish on a Special Issue of Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology & Behaviour ( ), Journal of Risk and Reliability and other SCI or SSCI Journals.


   Conference Topics

  With the rapid development of Intelligent and Connected Vehicles, Intelligent Data Mining, Intelligent Traffic Information Awareness and Vehicle to Vehicle or Vehicle to Infrastructure Communication Technology, there is both challenges and opportunities for currently transportation systems in Intelligent and Connected Environments. How to improve the safety of transportation system with these new technology has become a popular research topic in the field of transportation and the theme of this conference. ICTIS 2019 will facilitate in-depth discussions about infrastructure, data collection, processing and applications and at the same time, promote exchanges in traffic safety theory, analyzing methods and risk preventive measures in Intelligent and Connected Environments.
