Invitation to contribute to Special Sessions at WCTR15 in Mumbai

Special Sessions on Big Data and Automation

The five active Emeritus Members of the World Conference on Transport Research Society are keen to encourage early stage researchers to contribute to the debate on the potential for transport policy of two of the most significant current technological developments: big data and automation.   They will be hosting Special Sessions in Mumbai, one each of these themes, and aim to facilitate a journal special issue on each, drawing on the presentations made, and providing an opportunity for early stage researchers to publish their research findings on these key topics.

Members of the Society, and registered delegates for WCTR15, are invited to submit abstracts for contributions to these two Special Sessions, and to encourage early stage researchers working with them to do so.  We encourage two types of contribution: presentations which are not already reflected in papers accepted by the conference, and short summaries of papers which have already been accepted for presentation.

If you wish to contribute, please send an abstract of no more than 400 words, setting out the objectives, methodology, results and policy implications, to Professor Tony May at a.d.may@its.leeds.ac.uk by Friday 22nd February.  Please indicate whether the abstract is for a new research output or for one which has already been accepted for presentation elsewhere in the conference, and which you wish to summarise in the Special Session.

The objectives of each session can be viewed at  Emeritus Special Sessions in Mumbai
