The 22nd International Conference on
“New mobility choices for sustainable and alternative scenarios“
in conjunction with
The 2022 International Conference on Computational
Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2022)
July 4th – July 7th 2022
Over 70% of EU citizens live in cities and this produces around 23% of all greenhouse gas emissions from transport. In order to ensure the adoption of strategies related to sustainable and intelligent mobility, interurban and urban mobility must become more sustainable, intelligent and healthy.
In this way, it is necessary to intervene on urban planning and mobility actions (promoting the spread of SUMPs and new transport infrastructures and services) but also on modal choices and therefore on travel habits (relating to users and therefore to transport demand).
These strategies aim to contribute to the EU’s greenhouse gas reduction targets as set out in the climate law (including -55% by 2030) improve transport and mobility to, in and around cities, as well as improve the efficiency of goods and home deliveries.
In order to make urban transport resilient, environmentally friendly and energy efficient, it is also necessary to identify zero-emission solutions not only for mobility but also for urban logistics (also by integrating sustainable urban logistics plans (SULP) within the SUMP framework).
To support this, it is necessary to provide for an acceleration of digitization and innovation by incorporating urban mobility into the work on the supply and processing of commercially sensitive data for multimodal digital mobility services such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and on a common European space for mobility data to facilitate access and sharing of mobility data. All this will allow for a greater spread of “Climate-neutral” and “Smart Cities” in the coming years.
The workshop focuses on theoretical and practical overview of the development of mobility aspects and possible outcomes on urban and non-urban context.
In particular, it is based on the development of studies on the opportunities and changes produced in urban areas on both demand and supply of transport and logistics.
The objective of this workshop is to bring researchers (scientific computing and applications in all fields of science, engineering, technology, economics, law and social sciences) as well as qualified professionals working on basic and applied sciences to present, compare and discuss research progress, applications and achievements and to design future perspectives of “new urban mobility”. This workshop stimulates the presentation of thoughtful insights by presenting original interdisciplinary research results and case studies on the relevant topic.
Significant progress has been made in the last decades with the adoption of shared mobility, the improvement of vehicle power supply and the promotion of walking and micro mobility for short distances, challenges still remain on the nature of changes on mobility considering also the recent pandemic. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different scientific communities dealing with urban mobility planning and design, land use and infrastructure from engineering, psychological and social, economic and legal perspectives, in order to focus on the evolution of alternative transport modes that serve the objectives of sustainable urban mobility. The workshop focuses on the treatment of various case studies related to trends in the urban transport and mobility sector before, during and after the pandemic with a focus on evaluation methods and developments.
Following topics are of interests to the workshop:
- Sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) and sustainable urban logistics plans (SULP)
- Decarbonization strategies, sustainable and resilient mobility development (models and principles applied in illustrative case studies, including reports on local practices, international thematic experiences, innovations in regional and national legislation).
- Analysis of the economic and social aspects of transport and logistics system.
- Urban planning, sustainability, infrastructural and social challenges (social inclusion, territorial cooperation, planning for resilient communities, land use changes, participatory planning processes, and urban environment)
- E-commerce and logistics last-mile
- Electric and hybrid mobility
- Smart cities
- Application of microsimulation in sustainable traffic planning and neutral cities
Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop NEWMOB 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: Configurative analysis, cities, urban morphology, urban dynamics, sustainability.
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 “New mobility choices for sustainable and alternative scenarios” – NEWMOB_2022)” workshop from the drop-down list of all workshops.
Papers accepted to “NEWMOB 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.
