14th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science
(IWCTS 2021) (co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2021)

Beijing, China
November 1, 2021

The 14th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science (IWCTS 2021) 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. Sustainability: Emission analysis and reduction, decarbonization, alternative fuels, electric vehicles, transportation equity, environmental justice.
  2. Traffic Operations: Connected and Autonomous (CAVs), computational traffic flow models and control algorithms, data-driven approaches to transportation systems operations, freight transportation systems, resiliency during extreme weather events.
  3. Infrastructure Sensing: Digital Twin technologies, urban sensing infrastructure, edge computing.
  4. Travel Behavior Analysis: modeling and simulation of population and freight movements, dynamic routing algorithms, role of transportation in community spread of a COVID-19, effect of COVID-19 on traffic/travel behavior.

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: August 27th, 2021 (AoE)
Notification to the authors: September 24th, 2021
Camera ready papers due: October 1st, 2021
IWCTS Workshop: November 1st, 2021
