   About the Workshop


The 9th International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science
(IWCTS 2016) 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 and 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 computation, knowledge discovery, and technology
aspects of transportation systems while welcoming research papers in
computer science, transportation science, urban and regional planning, the
automotive arena, civil engineering, robotics, geography, geo-informatics,
and other related disciplines.




In the near future, vehicles, travelers, and the infrastructure will
collectively have billions of sensors that can communicate with each other.
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. This
environment will enable numerous novel applications and order of magnitude
improvement of the performance of existing applications. 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, user feedback and
incentives for collaborative behavior are areas of technology policy
central to the success of this ubiquitous computing environment.


   Scope of Submissions


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submissions of original, previously unpublished papers contributing to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

•          Collaborative transport, including collaborative multi-modal

•          Computational and artificial intelligence aspects of assisted
driving, collaborative transport or multi-modal transport

•          Crowd sourcing and participatory sensing in transport

•          Cameras as sensors for trajectory acquisition and event

•          Computer Vision-based information extraction from image sequences

•          Context aware analysis of movement data

•          New processing frameworks for handling masses of transport data
(e.g. Hadoop)

•          Uncertain information in collaborative transport and assisted

•          Mechanism design for collaborative behavior

•          Data mining and statistical learning for travel information

•          Human-computer interfaces in intelligent transportation

•          Privacy, security, and trust in transportation information

•          Novel applications targeted to health, mobility, livability and


   Submission Format and Guidelines


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 in this format, and should
be marked ‘(Position paper)’ in the subtitle. Accepted papers will be
published in the ACM digital library under the condition that at least one
author has registered for both the main SIGSPATIAL conference and the
workshop, attends the workshop, and presents the accepted paper in the
workshop. Otherwise, the accepted paper will not appear in the workshop
proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the workshop
