(Following is the previous information of ICTIS 2015, the special session for ICTIS 2019 will be updated soon.)

 

Time: June 27th, 2015

 
 

Special session 1: Flexible Risk Assessment and Decision Science

 
 

 Session Chair: J.wang and D.zhang

 
 

 

 

Purpose:

the purpose of this special session to examine the research challenges of developing safer and cost-effective design and operation of large engineering systems through risk-based decision making in an ever-changing environment. This special session provides a platform for knowledge exchange on understanding how challenges in risk assessment and risk-based decison making are rationally addressed so as to formulate research networks for collaboration.

 
 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Uncetainty modelling.
  • Expert knowledge elicitation.
  • Human and organizational factors and safety culture intergration.
  • Risk prediction.
  • Software tools.
  • Probabilistic and possibilistic risk estimation.
  • Cost-benefit modelling.
  • Risk-based decision making.

Special session 2:Container Transportation: Resilience and Sustainability

 
 

 Session Chair: Z. Yang and D. Zhang

 
 

 

 

Purpose:

The purpose of this special session is to examine the research challenges of developing resilient and sustainable container transportation, more specifically to identify opportunities and provide recommendations for researchers to conduct studies associated with operational research, safety, security and resilience, climate change, cost benefit analysis, ICT and intermodal transportation in the context. It will also provide a platform for knowledge exchange on understanding how the resilience and sustainability of container transportation systems can be enhanced through gathering and exchanging the knowledge and expertise in different segments involved in the systems.

 
 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Container cargo operation efficiency and traffic optimization

  • Safety and security analysis and management of CSCs

  • Climate change and sustainability assessment of container transportation systems

  • Green logistics modelling

  • Use of ICT in container transportation

  • Cost benefit analysis and economics modelling of CSCs

  • Intermodal logistics management

Special session 3:Emerging Technologies for High-fidelity Land Use Transport Interaction Modeling: Opportunities, Challenges and Initiatives

 
 

 Session Chair: M. Zhong/J.D. Hunt

 
 

 

 

Purpose:

Emerging technologies, such as big data, high-performance computing, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS), have resulted in a profound impact to the way of doing businesses in many disciplines of our society. They enable us to sense, know, understand, manage and operate our society in a much more informed ways. Land use transport interaction modeling is to simulate how urban systems involve with a particular interest in understand how transportation system interacts with land uses. In this regard, emerging technologies appear to offer so much to increase the “fidelity” of such models (in terms of spatial, temporal and societal resolutions) and their capacity to better simulate urban activities and their impacts. Therefore, this special session is dedicated to discussions of opportunities, challenges and initiatives of using the above emerging technologies for a “high-fidelity” integrated modeling process

 
 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Opportunities for enhancing the fidelity of individual module (e.g., land/space development, environment, economy, or transport).

  • Challenges of using a particular emerging technology in ILUTM.

  • Initiatives of using emerging technologies for an improved spatial modeling process.

  • Initiatives of using emerging technologies for an improved temporal modeling process.

  • Initiatives of using emerging technologies for an increased fidelity in the representation of urban activities and corresponding process.

  • Assessment of improved modeling accuracy from emerging technologies.
