Online Conference on Transportation Planning & Implementation Methodologies for Developing Countries

Online Conference on Transportation Planning & Implementation Methodologies for Developing Countries

 

 

 

aBOUT THE cONFERENCES

 

The practical problems associated with transportation systems engineering in many developing countries including India and developed countries are different and complex. Therefore, researchers and agencies have been working to tackle these challenges and to identify implementable solutions for various transportation engineering related problems as per prevailing conditions. In this direction, TPMDC 2020 brings an ideal platform for researchers, practitioners, and agencies to share their experience and practical solutions to various transportation engineering problems. This conference invites extended abstract related to various themes under the umbrella of transportation systems engineering.

The TPMDC conference is being organized by the Transportation Systems Engineering (TSE) group of the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India. The TSE group started in 1988 and currently has seven faculty members and more than fifty graduate students, working in various research areas. TPMDC workshop/conference started in 1996 and conducted biannually at IIT Bombay. However, considering the Covid-19 pandemic, the organizing committee has decided to organize the 13th version of TMPDC in online mode on 10 and 11 December 2020.

 

 

Conference Themes

 

Track I: Activity and Transport Demand
This track deals with the topics related to travel demand management, travel behaviour and transport demand, spatial analysis of travel pattern, travel behaviour, choice modelling, applications of travel behaviour analysis and demand modelling approaches.

Track II: Emerging Travel Technologies
This theme focuses on connected and autonomous vehicles and modelling, technology enabled models of mobility services related to passenger and freight transportation, technology enabled multi-modal integration, intelligent transportation systems, traffic management in the presence of CAVs, robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality in transportation, and any allied topics.

Track III: Pavement Materials, Analysis and Design
This theme focuses on the use of innovative materials and technologies for design, construction, maintenance of airfield and highways pavement structures. The papers in areas of pavement modelling, new materials, performance parameter, recycling, use of waste materials, stabilization, maintenance and rehabilitation, life cycle cost analysis are encouraged.

Track IV: Sustainable Land Use Transport Planning
This theme focuses on the sustainability aspects in transportation engineering. The topics include but not limited to sustainable development, public transportation and smart mobility, non-motorised transport and equity, transport and spatial development, medium- and long-term transport related climate change impact and clean air, smart transport, smart city, and quality of life and transport noise and vibration control.

Track V: Traffic Management, Operations, and Safety
This theme focuses on the understanding of vehicular traffic operations and design on different types of facilities in order to provide mobility in an efficient, reliable and safe manner. The specific topics include but not limited to traffic flow theory and operations/design, road safety and highway improvements, urban transport operations, effectiveness of control systems, operation and maintenance strategies, other transportation modes and pedestrians.

Track VI: Transport and Mobility Networks
This theme focuses on planning and design of efficient mobility networks including public transportation, freight and logistics. The major topics in this theme are logistics and supply chain management, humanitarian logistics in disasters, intermodal freight transport, urban goods movement, freight transport modelling, planning and design of transport and mobility networks.

Track VII: Transport Economics, Finance, Policy and Governance
This theme focuses on transportation planning, policy making, transportation economics and project finance, transport pricing and economic regulation, public-private partnership, project evaluation, cost-benefit analysis.

Note: Papers meeting the broad areas of the Tracks would also be considered.
