Computational transportation science

Computational Transportation Science (CTS) is an emerging discipline that combines computer science and engineering with modeling, planning, and economic aspects of transportation . The discipline studies how to improve the safety, mobility, and sustainability of the system by taking advantage of information technologies and ubiquitous computing . A list of subjects encompassed by CTS can be found at include. [1]

Computational Transportation Science is an emerging discipline in the field of computer science, which is also used in the field of data mining (or movement analysis), as well as data management aspects. CTS allows for an increasing flexibility of the local and autonomous system of transport between peers, partners and supporting infrastructure are allowed. Thus, CTS provides localized computing, self-organization, cooperation and simulation of transport systems.

Several academic conferences on CTS have been held up to date:

  • The Fourth ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science [2]
  • The Third ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science [3]
  • Dagstuhl Seminar 10121 on Computational Transportation Science [1]
  • The Second International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science [4]
  • The First International Workshop on Computational Transportation Science [5]

There is also a PhD program on Computational Transportation Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. [6]
