Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by DBLP, Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index, EI and SCOPUS.

Cities around the world are experiencing great challenges in terms of resiliency and adaptability in the face of fast-growing populations, high dependency on critical infrastructure, and extreme events. The more complex the transportation system, the greater the potential for disruptions. In this special session we address the resiliency and energy efficiency aspects in urban transport systems from the perspective of ICT-based research, considering approaches such as advanced data analysis, novel models of traffic behavior, real-time decision support systems, infrastructure for sustainable transportation (e.g., electric vehicles, bicycles, etc.), networking protocols and secure communications in vehicular networks, among others. The session promotes discussion of the integration of computing, communications, and control methods to enable resilient energy-efficient urban transportation systems in Smart Cities.


- Advanced data analysis of transportation networks
