SSMLS 2024: The 19th IEEE International Workshop on Smart and Sustainable Mobility and Logistics in Smart Cities

Call for Papers

The SSMLS workshop aims to foster cooperation among practitioners and researchers 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.

Workshop theme:

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 are 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.

Scope of the workshop:

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 modeling
  • Behavior 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
  • AI/ML systems for sustainable operations
  • Cybersecurity Threat analysis and risk management
  • Cybersecurity and resilience issues and solutions for mobility and logistics
