Special NECTAR session at Mobile Tartu Conference 2018

Call for papers

We are pleased to invite you for a special session Mobile Phones, Travel and Transportation organised by Cluster 8 (ICT) of NECTAR at the Mobile Tartu international conference, Estonia, June 27-29th, 2018.

Main topic

The use of mobile phone data within the field of transportation is increasing. GSM and GPS data generated by phones are used for analysis varying from determining the average speed at certain road sections to gathering revealed preference data of travellers regarding their travel behaviour (e.g. mode and route choice). As a result mobile phone data is increasingly used to better understand the daily urban system providing decision information for road authorities as well as road users and private companies.

Topics of interest

We seek to attract papers which will provide insights both from a conceptual and an empirical perspective, on the use of mobile phone data or smart phone apps within the field of transportation.

Important dates

Abstract submissions: 31 January 2018

Abstract acceptance: 15 February 2018

Paper deadline: 20 June 2016
