Symposium “THE FUTURE OF URBAN NETWORK RESEARCH”, September 18 – 20, 2017 at Ghent University (Belgium)
References to ‘urban networks’ in academic books and articles have grown dramatically since the 1950s, and research on the topic of urban networks now extends across many social and natural science disciplines (e.g. geography, sociology, engineering, physics) and over many scales of analysis from the local formation of social networks among neighbours in cities, to the regional formation of inter-city transportation networks, to the global formation of transnational urban-economic networks. This rapid growth in the size, scope, and scale of urban network research has left the area invigorated, but without a clear agenda for future work.
Transportation Research Part C will publish a Special Issue on “Technologies and Control for Sustainable Transportation”. The CFP is available here: http://www.journals.elsevier.com/transportation-research-part-c-emerging-technologies/call-for-papers/special-issue-on-technologies-and-control-for-sustainable
This special issue calls for papers that contribute to mathematical models, methodologies, quantitative analyses, and advanced applications that address the impacts of novel technologies and control systems to enhance the sustainability of (urban) transportation systems.
Deadline for submissions is September 15, 2016
