STS 2021: 4th International Symposium on Smart Transport Systems |June 14-16, 2021 | Rome, Italy
Part of the KES multi themed conference Smart Digital Futures which groups AMSTA-21, IDT-21, HCIS-21, InMed-21, SEEL-21 and STS-21 in one venue.
Modern transportation systems have been transforming rapidly in recent years. A series of vehicle technology innovations have blossomed in the past couple decades, just to mention a few examples, connected vehicles, self-driving cars, electric vehicles, Hyperloop, and even flying cars, which has imposed fundamental change on transport systems across the world.These innovations and breakthroughs have motivated researchers on Smart Transportation Systems (ITS) to expand the frontiers of relevant concepts and skillsets, which will affect the transport infrastructure modelling, safety analysis, freeway operations, intersection analysis, and other related leading edge topics.
The KES International Symposium on Smart Transportation Systems provides an opportunity for researchers, engineers, manager and students to meet, present their work and find out about the latest developments on the subject.

Call for invited sessions
An invited session consists of a presentation session of 6 to 12 or more papers on a specific conference topic, organised as half or full day mini-conference. We invite senior scientists who have a special interest in a specific conference topic to take responsibility for an invited session, gathering papers from a range of research expertise around the world. Researchers who would like to organise one or more Invited Sessions on topics falling within the scope of the conference are invited to submit a proposal for consideration.
Submission Guidelines and Review Process
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers which are not under review for another conference, workshop, or journal by the time of submission. The contributors should address one or more research areas included above.
Detailed submission information is available on the conference page.
Submitted papers will undergo double-blind peer review by at least two members of the program committee. Prior to submission, please ensure that you have removed any information from your paper which could identify the authors. Paper acceptance is based on the following criteria: novelty, technical soundness, practical or theoretical impact, clarity, and presentation. At least one author per paper submission is required to register for the conference, and to present the paper.
General Co-Chairs: Prof. X Qu, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden / Prof Lu Zhen, Shanghai University, China
Honorary Chair: Prof. Lakhmi C. Jain, University of Technology Sydney, Australia and Liverpool Hope University, UK
Executive Chair: Prof. Robert Howlett, Bournemouth University, UK
