ITS World Congress 2023

16 – 20 October 2023

The ITS World Congress is an international congress launched by the International Organization of Intelligent Transportation in America, Europe, and the Asian-Pacific region, which is the most influential comprehensive international congress in the field and is also the most extraordinary platform for achievement exhibition and technology exchange. Since 1994, countries on three continents have taken turns holding it once a year to promote the research of cutting-edge technologies in the field and the application of intelligent transportation systems. The ITS World Congress has been successfully held for 28 sessions. It integrates the exhibition and academic conference to show the technological strength and research achievements in the development of intelligent transportation in the countries. Government officials, technical experts, businesspeople, and experts from relevant international organizations will be invited here.

MODALES will participate in the Congress with a paper presentations.

ERTRAC Workshop on “Emissions from road transport”

13 June 2023

Until today, debates on vehicle emissions, their environmental impacts and their regulatory frameworks were focused on tailpipe emissions. But, for a holistic approach, the road transport sector requires a new perspective on the emissions from future mobility technologies, looking now also at (but not exclusively) particles from tyres, brakes or other friction partners, and electromagnetic radiation. The workshop aims to detect the white spots in our knowledge and identify which topics require research activities, to improve air quality further..

You can find the agenda and more information on registration on the ERTRAC website.

ITS European Congress 2023

ITS European Congress Toulouse 2022 

30 May – 1 June 2022

ERTICO ITS Europe and Toulouse Métropole will proudly host the European ITS Congress in the Centre of Toulouse, from 30 May to 1 June, 2022. The event will take place at the newly built Exhibition and Conference Centre MEETT – conveniently located near the Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. Toulouse is the fourth-largest city in France with 1.3 million inhabitants within its wider metropolitan area. As the capital of the French department of Haute-Garonne and the Occitanie region, the city is an important hub for business in the region and has many connections in particular related to the aeronautical industry.

The ITS Congresses represent the ultimate showcase of mobility services deployment and are the means for the ITS Community to keep pace with the incredible evolution of the industry. Over the years, the European Congresses have offered a platform for thought leaders, developers, entrepreneurs and decision makers from the transport, logistics and IT industries to share ideas and progress smart and sustainable mobility. The Call for Contributions for the Technical Programme is open, until 24 January. The European Programme Committee is inviting authors to submit papers and Special Interest Session (SIS) proposals to be considered for presentation and publication.

European conference H2020RTR – results from road transport research in H2020 projects

29 – 30 March 2022

The 5th edition of the European Conference H2020RTR will take place on 29-30 March 2022 in Brussels. This yearly conference is co-organised by the European Commission, together with the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), the European Green Vehicles Initiative Association for the 2Zero partnership (EGVIAfor2Zero) and the Connected, Cooperation and Automated Mobility Association (CCAM).

During the conference 65 H2020 projects will present their new discoveries and achievements, how they tackled hurdles and resolved challenges, and what are the next research steps in different essential areas for road transport: Green Vehicles, Urban Mobility, Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, Safety, Automated Road Transport … delivering a holistic view of how the European research scene is moving forward in these fields, bringing benefits to the environment, economy, and European society overall.

Projects of high relevance for the “Towards zero emission road transport” (2Zero) partnership, funded under its predecessor EGVI, and “Connected, Cooperation and Automated Mobility” (CCAM) partnership will be presented.
