The 2nd ITSS – ITE Symposium:

Where Rubber Meets the Road: Linking Research and Practice

27 October 2019

Aim of the Symposium

This symposium is organized jointly by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems 2019 (ITSC 2019).

This joint symposium brings transport researchers, transport practitioners and transport services end-users together to facilitate exchanges on opportunities and challenges in deploying advanced ITS technologies.

ITE is a US based international organization of transportation professionals including, transportation engineers, transportation planners, consultants, educators, technologists, and researchers. Its membership represents a 15,000 membership community that deploy transportation designs and technologies for improving mobility and safety for all transportation system users and help build smart and liveable communities (

Intended Audience

This Symposium series is primarily attended by:

  1. Researchers who are interested in deployment of advanced ITS technologies;
  2. Transportation engineers who are interested in engaging advanced transportation technologies; and
  3. End-users of ITS services

Topics of Interest

The 2nd ITSS – ITE Symposium will primarily be focused on to:

  • Autonomous vehicles development, road trials and deployments
  • ITS safety applications

Participation and Attendance

The goal of the Symposium is to stimulate and exchange dialogue between researchers and practitioners. The symposium program will, thus, consist of a series of dialogues.

No formal paper submission is required as no symposium paper will be uploaded to Xplore.

In addition to your attendance you would be welcome to take a part in the dialogue exchange.  To secure your place, please contact the Symposium Co-Chairs directly.
