Call for submissions.

We are now call­ing for sub­mis­sions to the 25th Inter­na­tion­al Sym­po­sium on Trans­porta­tion and Traf­fic The­o­ry (ISTTT25), which will be held July 15–17, 2024 in Ann Arbor, Michi­gan, Unit­ed States.

Giv­en the high stan­dards of the ISTTT series, only 36 papers will be select­ed for podi­um pre­sen­ta­tion and a max­i­mum of 24 papers will be select­ed for poster pre­sen­ta­tion. Spe­cial issues at Trans­porta­tion Research Part B: Method­olog­i­cal, Trans­porta­tion Research Part C: Emerg­ing Tech­nolo­gies, and Trans­porta­tion Sci­ence have been planned for ISTTT25. As per pre­vi­ous ISTTTs, we expect all papers accept­ed by ISTTT25 to be pub­lished in these three spe­cial issues.

To present a paper at ISTTT25, an extend­ed abstract (2000–3000 words) should be sub­mit­ted elec­tron­i­cal­ly in PDF for­mat at Easy­Chair for the con­fer­ence by Decem­ber 10, 2022* for the first-round review. 

Guidelines for the extended abstract.

  • The extend­ed abstract should be between 2000 and 3000 words, with all the sup­port­ing fig­ures and tables appro­pri­ate­ly posi­tioned in the main body of the abstract. The authors are encour­aged to use the Word or LaTeX tem­plates for prepar­ing the extend­ed abstract.

  • The extend­ed abstract should con­vey the research moti­va­tion, define the research prob­lem, intro­duce the pro­posed method or solu­tion, and sketch the expect­ed results.

  • While the research is not expect­ed to be fin­ished by the time of sub­mis­sion, the extend­ed abstract should pro­vide suf­fi­cient details regard­ing research high­lights and method­olog­i­cal devel­op­ments to allow for peer assess­ment. Giv­en the rel­a­tive­ly short peri­od for sub­se­quent full-paper prepa­ra­tions, the remain­ing work should reflect a rea­son­able task load that can be com­plet­ed with­in sev­en months.

  • There are no spe­cif­ic require­ments for the struc­ture of the extend­ed abstract. The authors own the full flex­i­bil­i­ty to tai­lor the abstract in a way that best deliv­ers the mer­its of their research.
