The 22nd International Conference on
“Transport Infrastructures for Smart Cities“
in conjunction with
The 2022 International Conference on Computational
Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2022)
July 4th – July 7th 2022
The purpose of this workshop is to gather contributions on criteria, approaches, methodologies, and tools for ensuring and enhancing our cities’ sustainability and livability, as well as the well-being of their inhabitants via action on transport infrastructures.
Numerous cities are already making significant strides toward improved hardware for social urban ecosystem and innovative projects and research are providing a new “vision” of a smart city and illuminating how new technologies and approaches applied to transport infrastructures can contribute significantly to the evolution of cities. The quality and type of road surface, the sensors to traffic and road control, the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITSs), the new form of micro-mobility and accessibility can greatly improve lifestyle, economy and efficiency of smart city and mobility.
Furthermore, in the Covid-19 era, rethinking public space and urban mobility becomes necessary in order to create a resilient environment to Covid and thus address its negative impact: social exclusion, loss of social relationships, risky human activities in closed spaces and densely populated areas, inhibition of economic and commercial activities.
Urban streets must be defined more broadly: the purposes of urban areas must include the improvement of citizens needs and perceptions. A new vision, also focused on high-tech features, rethink these places as relational spaces. The urban spaces environment evolves into a “digital ecosystem”: communication, information and cognitive function have a crucial role in distribution of pedestrian and traffic flow, considering urban space and streets not exclusively as a physical frame. Individuals might be walkers, drivers, bus-passengers or cyclists and they all have different needs, abilities and purposes; hence, the urban environment has to accommodate human diversity.
The transformation of urban streets into smart, green, sustainable, inclusive and safe spaces for people and city users in general is one of the most critical acts for improving the quality of life of the city.
Focusing on “Transport Infrastructures for Smart Cities”, this workshop may explore (but is not limited) these relevant issues:
- Urban inclusive design for urban spaces
- Greenways planning·and design
- Recycled and reused materials ·
- Alternative and multifunctional materials
- Human factors affecting road design
- Stormwater management with green streets·
- Safer and more resilient mobility·
- Street design for emergency responds·
- Circular economy applied to transport infrastructures
- Transport Infrastructures for connected and autonomous mobility
- Sensors smart grid for mobility and road management system
- Sustainable infrastructures and green pavement·
- Traffic management and safety
- Infrastructures energetic impact and mitigation·
- Intelligent Transport Systems and info mobility
- Innovative technologies and materials to mitigate heat islands, improve air quality and water management
- The future view of road design
Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop TISC welcomes contributions on ICT and computational aspects, proposals and applications from a wide variety of scholars on the issues proposed.
Engineers, Geologists, Urban and Regional Planners, Landscape Architects, Geographers and Economic Geographers, Environmental Engineers, among others are welcome to contribute.
Keywords: Accessibility, Mobilities, Safety, Urban space, Cities, Augmented reality, Virtual reality, Accessibility design, Cultural tourism accessibility, ITS, Innovative flexible services, Real-time information, Big-data.
Each paper will be independently reviewed by 3 programme committee members. Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, or accepted on the condition that suggestions for improvement will be incorporated, or rejected. Notification of this decision will take place on April 2022.
Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (10 to 16 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volumes
Please adhere strictly to the formatting provided in the template to prepare your paper and refrain from modifying it. The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of LNCS. For formatting information, see the publisher’s web site (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
Papers should be submitted at: http://ess.iccsa.org/
Please don’t forget to select “Transport Infrastructures for Smart Cities” – TISC_2022)” workshop from the drop-down list of all workshops.
Papers accepted to “TISC 2022” will be published in the ICCSA Conference proceedings, in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, with doi, indexed by WOS, Scopus and DBLP.
