Events : 19th International IEEE Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems

Convention Center, Windsor Oceanico Hotel
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
1 -4 November 2016
"Intelligent Transportation for Smarter Societies"

Call for Workshop Papers has been extended until 11 July!


The IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference (ITSC) is the annual flagship conference of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society. ITSC 2016 welcomes articles in the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems dealing with new developments in theory, analytical and numerical simulation and modeling, experimentation, demonstration, advanced deployment and case studies, results of laboratory or field operational tests under the general theme of Intelligent Transportation for Smarter Societies. IEEE ITSC 2016 is organized by Faculdade de Engenharia, Universidade do Porto (FEUP), Portugal, and Instituto de Ciências Matemicas e de Computação, Universidade de São Paulo (ICMC/USP), Brazil.

The technical program of ITSC 2016 will take place at the Convention Center of Windsor Oceanico Hotel, located in Barra da Tijuca.
