Introduction

The Slovenian ITS Association, under the umbrella of the Electrotechnical Association of Slovenia is organising the 26th International Symposium on Electronics in Transport – ISEP which promotes a strategic objective of integrating and strengthening the European Research Area in Slovenia as well as in the other member States, and some nearby countries in South Eastern Europe.

We invite prospective authors for contributions in the theory and/or practice of intelligent transportation systems and services (ITS) technologies for travellers and freight in connection to vehicles on Roads (e.g. cars and buses), Air (e.g. aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles), Rails (e.g. trains, metros and trams) and Water (e.g. ships).

The theme of the 2018 Symposium is “Challenges for autonomous transport”. This theme brings focus to the importance of recent activities in the areas of automated driving, where several companies presented their efforts to establish driverless road vehicles. The automation has already taken place before at different means of transport (trains, ships, planes) so the topics will cover the broader aspects. With the establishment of the environment awareness these approaches require the inclusion of high-end ITS technologies, providing fewer traffic collisions, reduced traffic congestion, improved traffic flow management, optimized parking spaces utilization, reduced enforcement needs and equal use for visually or motion-impaired users. There are still lots of issues remaining, foremost related to legislation, liability for damage, reliability of underlying hardware and software architecture and the possible combination of concurrent use of old-fashioned and automated driving. The concept of automated vehicles may be further enhanced by the information and communication technologies. According to recent market reports, vehicles are the 3rd fastest growing connected devices behind smart phones and tablets.

On the other hand, it is of great importance to establish a research network in Slovenia and nearby countries in the area of ITS and to tie it to European and regional research. Each of you will come with your own aspirations to the Symposium will share them with new and old colleagues.

Unique to this event is the encouragement of participation by PhD students who are involved in current state-of-the-art transport research and practical issues concerning ITS and Smart Mobility & Services. The symposium will give PhD students the opportunity to present their PhD work to a knowledgeable audience.  At the same time, it will offer the opportunity for the presentation of achievements of Slovene and foreign researchers.

Further, the symposium gives participants from ministries, universities, research organisations and industry the opportunity to establish personal contacts with the aim of stimulating an efficient transfer of research results to the market, according to the needs and expectations of the users of all modes of transport.

The aim of the symposium is also to encourage dialogue and cooperation among the participants who are involved in solving transport problems and looking for common ITS solutions.

 

ISEP Symposium is focusing on the following topics:

 

  • ITS aspects for all transport modes (aviation, land transport, which includes rail, road and off-road transport, and ship transport),
  • Policy, strategy and standards for ITS in Europe,
  • Human aspect in ITS,
  • ITS training and education,
  • Smart use of energy for transportation,
  • Active traffic management,
  • Traffic simulation and modelling,
  • Incident prevention and emergency management,
  • V2x communication technologies and applications,
  • Smart public transport operations and urban mobility,
  • Road and congestion pricing and financial transactions,
  • Solutions for travellers with special needs,
  • Supporting ICT technologies (maps, data, and web),
  • Business models for MaaS and other ITS,
  • Cooperation among mobility actors (e.g. authorities, transport operators and suppliers).

 

Who should attend?

  • Educators and Researchers,
  • Representatives of Transport Organisations,
  • State Officials and Local Community Officials,
  • Communications Providers,
  • ITS Manufacturers and Suppliers,
  • Vehicle Manufacturers and Suppliers,
  • Transport and Logistics Services Providers,
  • Environmental Advocates,
  • Representatives of Public Safety Organisations,
  • System Integrators,
  • Telematics Providers,
  • Students of Technical and Humanistic Sciences.

 

Symposium program

Experts will speak through a Plenary Session and Technical Sessions. All modes of transport will be included. To contribute please forward an abstract of your paper in an electronic format to the Programme Committee using the application system via www.isep.si. All articles will be reviewed and accepted articles will be published in the Symposium’s Proceedings with ISBN.

Submit paper

Dear Authors!

You are welcome to send an abstract of your proposed paper to organisers of a session you are interested in by January 15, 2018.

The first step to send an abstract is the registration as the "first author"! After registration you will receive e-mail with

password to login into the ISEP Register Application. Username is your valid e-mail address. After that you can submit an abstract including title, target session and potential co-authors.

Please register under the Registration.
