Call for Abstracts
“Intelligent Systems and Consciousness Society”
2-3 November 2023
Conference and Cultural Center of the University of Patras
New submission deadline is June 15, 2023. In addition to the oral presentations, the University of Patras is now accepting abstracts for conference workshops, sessions and posters.
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.
Submissions will be evaluated by the conference Research Committee for relevance to the conference theme, quality, feasibility and coherence. All researchers whose abstracts are accepted will receive an invitation to submit a paper for publication at the conference, and to make an oral presentation.
Please submit your abstract in English only in a single pdf file (up to 10mb) by 15 June 2023 at 23:59 (CET). Abstracts are accepted only through electronic submission. Incomplete or late submissions cannot be accepted.
Please ensure that your submission includes all requested information on the submission form, as follows:
- Title (word limit: 20)
- Authors: last name and first name, organization
- Note: the person who submits the abstract is considered the main author
- Introduction (word limit: 250)
- Methodology (word limit: 250)
- Results (word limit: 250)
- Discussion (word limit: 250)
- Up to 2 tables or figures

By submitting an abstract to ITS2023, the first author (submitting author):
- Takes responsibility for the accuracy of the submitted abstract.
- Confirms that all authors are aware of and agree with the content of the abstract and support the evidence presented.
- Confirms that the abstract is not under consideration for presentation or publication elsewhere and has not previously been presented or published in its most recent form.
- Approves the publication of the abstract, when selected for presentation, in the final issue of the proceedings.
- Confirms that the presenting author will register by August 1, 2023 and attend the Conference. Abstracts by authors who have not registered with the Conference by this date will not be included in the program or publication.
The International Research Committee reserves the right to reject submissions that follow these guidelines or may request a revision by the presenter prior to acceptance.
