The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Smart & Sustainable Mobility & Logistics in Smart Cities (SSMLS 2021)

Call for Papers


SSMLS 2021 aims to foster cooperation among practitioners and researchers in order to exchange the latest industrial experience and research ideas on the development of products and services for smart and sustainable mobility and logistics in Smart Cities.

Urban mobility is one of the toughest challenges we all face today, as existing mobility systems are not smart and sustainable enough to cope with the increasing demand. These issues are true for both passenger and freight mobility. In addition, mobility needs are evolving. Changing travel habits, demand for services to increase convenience, speed and predictability, mobility-as-a-service and e-freight are emerging as new mobility paradigms. Planning and decision-making is evolving toward a more evidence-based approach, as well as evolving customer expectations toward individualization and sustainability will require mobility service innovation as well as business model transformation.

Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of Smart Cities, City Logistics, Sustainable Transportation and Sharing Mobility are invited to discuss state of the art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies and techniques. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cooperative intelligent transportation systems
  • Road transport automation
  • Electric mobility
  • Maps and travel planning
  • Mobility modelling
  • Behaviour change approaches
  • Travel demand estimation and modelling
  • Evidence-based planning and decision-making
  • Big Data and analytics in transport
  • New Business models in mobility and logistics
  • Blockchain and trusted network for mobility and logistics
