13th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science
(IWCTS 2020) (co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2020)

Seattle, Washington
November 3, 2020

The 13th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science (IWCTS 2020) 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, 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 computational approaches for (not limited to):

  1. Transportation Planning & Modeling: travel behavioral analysis, modeling and simulation of population movements and freight transportation systems.
  2. Transportation Operations: Connected and Autonomous (CAVs), Computational traffic flow models and control algorithms, role of transportation in community spread of a pandemic (COVID-19).
  3. Infrastructure Sensing: Digital Twin, Data-driven approaches to transportation systems operations
  4. Other Technologies: Urban sensing technologies, Geoinformatics and Regional Science

We welcome research papers from computer sciences, geosciences, transportation sciences, urban sciences and other related sciences which address the above-mentioned focus areas. We will be organizing a panel alongside paper presentations/keynote. We seek to invite eminent people from industry, academia, and laboratories.

Important Deadlines:

Paper submission due: [CLOSED] September 6th September 13th, 2020 11:59pm PDT (extended deadline)
Notification to the authors: September 30th October 4th, 2020 (October 7th, 2020)
Camera ready papers due: October 11th, 2020 (October 14th, 2020)
IWCTS Workshop: November 3rd, 2020
ACM SIGSPATIAL Conference: November 3rd – November 6th, 2020

ACM SIGSPATIAL Conference News

In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and the unpredictable implications on both health and travel restrictions, ACM SIGSPATIAL and the Organizing Committee have decided to convert SIGSPATIAL 2020 to a fully virtual conference. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global participants and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement of our international audience and sponsors at this time.
