Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are founded on state-of-the-art research and technology in transportation, infrastructure and networks and ensure safe, fast and comfortable movement of people and goods in smart cities and communities.

In the evolution towards vehicle autonomy and the empowerment of the mobile citizen, interconnection (Connected ITS, C-ITS) and awareness (Conscious Connected ITS, CC-ITS) in decision-making are essential. The holistic understanding and optimal interpretation of values and situations about people, objects and vehicles is sought for drastically improved transport and road safety.

The challenge mainly concerns the application of CC-ITS in dynamic transport and traffic systems, digital data management (big data & IoT), cyber privacy (blockchain), intermodality, safety & security, communications (5G+), intelligent information and management, and environmental and health impacts.

In addition to the above, contributions are encouraged in:

Computer science applications – a key pillar of CC-ITS based on holistic computational logic for richer cognition. This can be achieved through multidimensional dynamic modelling and forecasting, and augmented spatiotemporal detection, drones and satellites.

Environmental modeling and forecasting contributes to intelligent monitoring, information and decision-making in air quality and environmental incidents. This can increase the reliability of real-time urban climate and mobility prediction.

Psychology and behavioral modeling benefits from smart cities and intelligent transport systems data. Through IoT technologies and intelligent data management, these models increase the potential for safety and security in intermodal travel and urban mobility.

Architecture and urban planning offer foundations for integrating CC-ITS in urban areas, as they help harmonize new infrastructure, as in the design of multi-dimensional mobility corridors, and reconfiguration of public spaces and buildings to share mobility space.

This is a unique opportunity for those who wish to participate with a live presentation. The conference brings together stakeholders including interdisciplinary professionals from civil engineering, electrical & electronics engineering, communications, computer science, architecture, urban planning, informatics, physics & air quality, economics, psychology.

Together we share and explore the potential for expanded cooperation of the above sectors within the society of consciousness. Students, researchers, PhD candidates, engineers, and professionals from the above or related fields are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts on their research and applications in the broader thematic context of intelligent, consciousness-oriented transportation systems.
