The 27th ITS World Congress in Los Angeles, CA, October 4-8, 2020 will explore “The New Age of Mobility.” The recent explosion of new technologies and new forms of mobility are transforming the future of transportation. At a time in which we are focused on moving people, data and freight, how will we prepare for a future that is increasingly more connected, autonomous, shared and electric? The technologies that make our roads safer will also reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions and move us closer to a future of seamless mobility — one that is safer, greener and smarter.
For the 27th ITS World Congress, ITS America will be partnering with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. At the time of your original scientific paper submission to the World Congress, authors may identify if they are interested in submitting a full paper for consideration and peer review by the TRB peer review process. Authors of scientific papers accepted for presentation at the World Congress 2020 will be invited by ITS America to re-submit their accepted scientific paper directly to the TRB to be considered for possible publication in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board.
