Call for Papers – Data-driven, sustainable, mobility and transportation

From a systems science perspective, cities can be conceived as a system of systems where citizens (i.e., Society) interact with the environment, infrastructures and the built domain. Existing and emergent mobility networks are a key component across infrastructures, as well as the built domain, facilitating transportation of goods & services, and human movement and access to communities and resources. Ease of mobility has become a serious factor influencing the livability of urban spaces. Developing data-informed, sustainable mobility and transportation plans, policies, and technologies is foundational to urban planning, and essential to improve livability, while ensuring the optimal operation of transportation and other city services.

Current and emerging technology developments (e.g., IoT devices, 5G communications), facilitate the deployment of sensor networks to capture large amounts of data that allow the “near” real-time monitoring of city operation. Transforming these data into actionable information to support data-driven decision making and planning, requires the development and use of advanced analytics (including recent developments in AI, machine learning and deep learning).

This solicitation seeks high-quality original research papers (including work-in-progress papers) in any aspect of data-driven analysis of transportation and mobility networks in urban scenarios. Example topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Multi-scale analysis and modeling of mobility networks.
  • AI for mobility and transportation modeling.
  • Understanding, from a data perspective, the coupling of mobility networks with other critical infrastructures.
  • Integrated analytics of multi-modal transportation data.
  • Methods for the near real-time ingestion and integration of heterogeneous traffic data.
  • Emergent transportation and mobility paradigms including multi-modal, micro-mobility, vehicular and non-vehicular mobility .
  • Data-driven sustainable and energy-efficient mobility.
  • Novel traffic routing strategies.
