The 3rd Symposium on Management of Future Motorway and Urban Traffic Systems will be hosted by the University of Luxembourg in the new Campus Belval, on 6-8 July, 2020. The symposium programme will be scheduled on the first two days (6-7 July), while the third day will be dedicated to two thematic workshops.
Extended abstracts are welcome until February 15th, 2020. Template for submitting the abstracts can be found on the symposium website: https://mfts20.gforge.uni.lu
The Symposium in a nutshell
As Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) are being progressively introduced in our transport and mobility systems, there is a growing need to understand the implications and opportunities for an enhanced traffic management as well as to identify innovative ways and tools to optimize traffic efficiency. Motivated by this increased attention, in 2016 the 1st Symposium on Management of Future Motorway and Urban Traffic Systems was organized in Chania (Greece) by the Technical University of Crete. The second edition was then hosted by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra (Italy) in 2018, adopting a more traditional format of an open call for contributions. The main emphasis remains on engaging in open discussions, and creating a community of experts and relevant stakeholders that will collaborate to identify the challenges and propose solutions for managing future transport systems.
As continuation of the first two editions, the MFTS2020 will focus on future traffic management systems, covering the subjects of traffic control, estimation, and modelling of motorway and urban networks, with particular emphasis on the presence of advanced vehicle communication and automation technologies. The conference will particularly put emphasis on challenges and solutions for urban traffic systems and for motorways by organizing in two parallel tracks, the first aiming to highlight the importance of managing multimodal systems and urban traffic controls, the second targeting research and showcasing of motorway management with an increased presence of connected and autonomous vehicles.
A list of topics that are particularly welcome are here suggested:
· Traffic Management in the Presence of CAVs
· Dynamic models for CAVs (Micro and Macroscopic level)
· Traffic Management and Coordinated Systems
· Advanced Public Transport Systems
· Advanced Vehicle Control and Safety Systems
· Human Behavior and Acceptance in the Presence of CAVs
· Incidence Management and Control
· Multimodal Systems Modeling and Management
· Advanced Urban Traffic Control with Connected Technologies
· C-ITS applications in traffic and transport management
· Network estimation and control using V2X communication
