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.
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.
Abstract submissions: 31 January 2018
Abstract acceptance: 15 February 2018
Paper deadline: 20 June 2016
