FORUM-ISTS2020 in Delft, The Netherlands
There is an urgent need among researchers and practitioners to discuss the future of mobility. This is a discussion that has been happening in different venues and many times the different stakeholders are not able to interact. The Forum ISTS2020 establishes as challenges (and opportunities) for a sustainable future mobility three main keywords:
Electrification, Sharification, and Connected Automation.
Academia, Industry andAuthorities should come together at this Forum on Integrated and Sustainable Transportation System (Forum ISTS) in order to discuss the future and prepare possible future collaboration between the three elements of the triple helix. The Department of Transport & Planning of TU Delft as a world-leading department in transport research will host this Forum in the city of Delft, the Netherlands, providing a unique venue for great discussion and collaboration.
Forum ISTS2020 will host classic detailed scientific presentations based on high quality submitted papers but also provide the floor for authorities to share their strategies and concerns or for companies to show how they view the future of mobility through structured presentations, which do not necessarily have to be of a detailed scientific nature. All these authorities and companies will be listed as participant organizations in the Forum webpage.
Besides the normal sessions, the interaction between the stakeholders and researchers will also happen in special panel sessions where all participants will join in plenary and there will be the opportunity to have questions on the fly from the audience. Also in that sense, this conference is different from traditional conferences opening up to other participants and increasing the societal relevance of the discussions.
Workshops will also be organized on relevant topics related to the conference subject, and we are open for proposals with that objective. More information to come soon. We also invite project leaders to organize meetings of their projects in parallel to the conference taking advantage of great facilities.
