Special Session on Intelligent Transportation Systems

With the fast development of advanced and emerging technology, the knowledge-based systems with software engineering are increasingly applied to transportation systems, including road and rail systems, and provide the technology to increase the effectiveness, environmental performance, safety, resilience and efficiency of transportation systems. As such, knowledge engineering and software engineering in transportation systems are spurring on tremendous amount of research and development of related technologies and applications. This session wants to demonstrate the emerging issues in the research of knowledge and software engineering approaches for transportation systems. Original and research articles are solicited in all aspects including theoretical studies, practical applications, and experimental prototypes.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and their relevance to the theme of this special issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


Papers must be written in English. An electronic version (Postscript, pdf, or MS Word format) of the full paper should be submitted to the Transportation Systems Research track using the following URL: (submission website will be open after January 1, 2017). Please use Internet Explorer as the browser. Manuscript must include a 200-word abstract and no more than 6 pages of 2-column formatted Manuscript for Conference Proceedings (include figures and references but exclude copyright form).
