4th KES International Symposium

Modern transportation systems have been transforming rapidly in recent years. A series of vehicle technology innovations have blossomed in the past couple decades, just to mention a few examples, connected vehicles, self-driving cars, electric vehicles, Hyperloop, and even flying cars, which has imposed fundamental change on transport systems across the world.

These innovations and breakthroughs have motivated researchers on Smart Transportation Systems (ITS) to expand the frontiers of relevant concepts and skillsets, which will affect the transport infrastructure modelling, safety analysis, freeway operations, intersection analysis, and other related leading edge topics.

The KES International Symposium on Smart Transportation Systems provides an opportunity for researchers, engineers, manager and students to meet, present their work and find out about the latest developments on the subject.


The Full Papers conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science. (The Short Papers and Abstracts conference proceedings will be published online and will not appear in the Springer volume).

Smart Digital Futures

The conference will take place as part of the Smart Digital Futures 2021 multi-theme conference which groups AMSTA-21, HCIS-21, IDT-21, InMed-21, SEEL-21 and STS-21 in one venue.
