12th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science (IWCTS 2019) (co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2019)

Chicago, Illinois
November 5 - 8, 2019

The 12th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science (IWCTS 2019) is particularly timely given the prominence of connected automated vehicles technologies in the global auto industry’s near-term growth strategies, of big data analytics, and unprecedented access to sensing data of mobility, and of integration of this analytics into the optimization of mobility and transport. These developments are deeply computational. We will build upon the success of previous workshops to continue to focus on connectivity, protocols, computation, knowledge discovery, and technology aspects of transportation systems while welcoming research papers in computer science, transportation science, civil engineering, urban and regional planning, urban sensing technologies, V2V and V2I, automotive transformations, connected autonomous vehicles, geography and geo-informatics, and other related disciplines. We will be organizing a panel alongside paper presentations / keynote. We seek to invite eminent people from industry, academia, and laboratories.


Computational methods for Transportation Science are the drivers for intelligent transportation systems, and thus essence for a sustainable future of cities with regard to urban mobility (people) and transport (freight). The fundamentals of these computational methods are rooted in space and time, and thus at the core of ACM SIGSPATIAL. In fact, the conference itself had always a significant portion of papers dedicated to these topics. A focused workshop at the beginning of the conference can:

We are committed to provide an intellectual, scientific, and industry platform to share findings, discuss directions, and develop networks through this workshop. Integrated with the conference, the workshop will enable the whole ACM SIGSPATIAL community to benefit from crosspollination of new ideas and discoveries.
