Call For Papers

IWCTS 2012 will be held in conjunction with the 20th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2012), November 6-9 2012, Redondo Beach, CA, USA.


The 5th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science intends to bring together communities interested in the computation, knowledge discovery and technology policy aspects of surface transportation systems. The organizers of IWCTS welcomes papers from researchers in computer science, urban and regional planning, civil engineering, geography, geoinformatics and related disciplines to submit papers for consideration for presentation and discussion at the one-day workshop and for publication in the conference proceedings.


Trends in sensing, communication and urbanization generate significant research questions relating to computation, knowledge discovery and technology policy for intelligent transportation systems. Transportation systems, due to their distributed/mobile nature, can become the ultimate test-bed for a ubiquitous (i.e., embedded, highly-distributed, and sensor-laden) computing environment of unprecedented scale. Information technology is the foundation for implementing new strategies, particularly if they are to be made available in real-time to wireless devices in vehicles or in the hands of people. Contributing are increasingly more sophisticated geospatial and spatio-temporal information management capabilities. Human factors, technology adoption and use, and user feedback and user-centered design are areas of technology policy central to the success of this ubiquitous computing environment.

The emerging discipline of Computational Transportation Science (the science behind Intelligent Transportation Systems) combines computer science and engineering with the modeling, planning, and economic aspects of transportation planning and engineering to leverage developments in the above domains. By taking advantage of ubiquitous computing, Computational Transportation Science applications can help create more efficient, equitable, livable and sustainable transportation systems and communities.


The International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science invites submissions of original, previously unpublished papers contributing to Computational Transportation Science. Position papers that report novel research directions or identify challenging problems are also invited. Papers incorporating one or more of the following themes are especially encouraged:
* Collaborative transport, including collaborative multi-modal transport
* Integrated public transport planning
* Computational and artificial intelligence aspects of assisted driving, collaborative transport or multi-modal transport, including cost optimization, delay management and disposition
* Sensing, crowdsourcing and participatory sensing in transport
* Uncertain information in collaborative transport and assisted traveling
* Simulation of traffic, passenger flows, assisted driving or collaborative transport
* Travel information, including recommender systems and user feedback systems
* Social media applications in travel
* Human factors including adaptive driving, travel behaviour, persuasive technology
* Data mining and statistical learning for travel information
* Dynamic shortest path computations using forecasts
* Human-computer interfaces in intelligent transportation applications
* Privacy and security in transportation information
* Social and institutional information related to travel
* Novel applications targeted to health, mobility, livability and sustainability


Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. Papers must be in English and not exceed 6 pages double column in ACM SIG format (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. Position papers are limited 4 pages. Each submission should start with: the title, abstract, and names, contact information of authors, type of the submission (research paper or position paper). To submit a paper, please visit Accepted papers will be published in the ACM digital library. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop.


* Paper submissions due: August 10, 2012
* Notification to the authors: September 10, 2012
* Camera ready papers due: September 23, 2012
* IWCTS Workshop: November 6, 2012
