The Slovenian ITS Association, under the umbrella of the Electrotechnical Association of Slovenia is organising the 24th 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, Accession States and in some nearby countries in South Eastern Europe.
The theme of the 2016 Symposium is “ITS for Efficient Energy Use”. Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) can support actions and policies for efficient energy use. ITS enable users to make well informed, hence responsible, choices on mobility. ITS also improve intermodal transport smoothness. ITS can improve traffic and infrastructure management, hence reduce congestion. ITS can provide tools for a more effective monitoring of environmental performances of vehicles, fleets, supply chains, networks.
ISEP 2016’s theme aims: at facilitating co-modality of people and goods, and eco-efficient navigation as well as reducing congestion and supporting traffic management; encouraging (local) authorities to develop a clear mobility policy based on intermodality and new services for intelligent mobility to make better use of existing energy; sharing best practices and identifying best opportunities for deployment to reduce CO2 and associated GHG emissions with the same amount or reduction of energy supply; improve awareness of the potential of ITS and facilitate the implementation of the best practice.
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. 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 detection,
- Emergency management,
- V2x communication technologies and applications,
- Smart public transport operations and urban mobility,
- Road and congestion pricing,
- Solutions for travellers with special needs,
- The role of IT in Logistics,
- Supporting ICT technologies (maps, data, and web).
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,

All articles will be reviewed and accepted articles will be published in the Symposium’s Proceedings with ISBN.
Dear Authors & Speakers!
The Organising Committee welcomes the submission of original contributions for presentation at ISEP 2016.
Please see the preliminary program for schedule and note that presentation time in English for papers is limited. You are required to use MS PowerPoint software for slide presentation. Bring a backup of your file on two separate storage devices such as your computer laptop, a USB-datastick, a CD, or another standard storage device with a standard cable connector. Please also consider sending an email to yourself with your slides as an attachment;
you should be able to download it from the internet at the conference.
