More than half of the world’s population already lives in urban areas. Urban mobility is essential, whether for the coexistence all of a city’s inhabitants or for the economic processes that drive the city forward. Traditional motorised traffic is an important factor influencing air and noise pollution in urban areas, whereas an increasingly diverse “modal split” is presenting transport planners with new challenges. These and other topics related to urban mobility will be addressed at the Urban Mobility Symposium. We are looking for innovative research, but also for practical reports. Submissions should focus on the processing, analysis and presentation of spatial information in the context of urban mobility. We are looking for submissions ranging from cartographic applications and products for visual analysis, communication and presentation of mobility data, to geoinformatics solutions for multimodal routings or traffic flow optimization. We are particularly interested in approaches that deal with new innovations for more sustainable mobility solutions.
Call for Participation
Proposals for presentations at the symposium can be submitted as Extended Abstracts (max. 3 pages incl. illustrations and references) in German and English. These will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted presentations will receive a 20-minute slot for presentation. These abstracts will be published as “Open Access” (CC BY-NC-ND) proceedings on the Symposium’s website. All accepted Extended Abstracts will also have the opportunity to publish their paper in English in a special edition of the Kartographische Nachrichten (KN) or the gis.Science Journal. Please note that the papers will be subject to a further peer review through the respective publications.
Young researchers are warmly invited to participate in the discourse and the symposium. Outstanding semester projects and bachelor’s or master’s theses can also be submitted in the form of extended abstracts. In this context, we would also like to point out that an acceptance for presentation at the symposium does not mean that a journal paper has to be published afterwards. This is an optional offer.
Within the next few days, we will publish the link to the submission system.
Participation in the symposium is free of charge. Due to the space available, the event is limited to a maximum of 70 participants. All accepted authors will receive two tickets reserved for the symposium. The remaining tickets will be available from the 1st of August with the announcement of the speakers.
Submission deadline: July 1st , 2019
