The Second Annual Irvine Symposium on Emerging Research in Transportation (ISERT 2019)

January 18-19, 2019
The Beckman Center, Irvine, CA 92697, USA

*UPDATE1*: ISERT2019 program and abstract booklet are out.

*UPDATE2*: Some talks are available to view on our YouTube Channel

This annual symposium is for focused academic idea-exchange among researchers and practitioners on emerging research and applications in transportation. The schedule will include podium presentations, poster sessions as well as innovative idea-exchange sessions. As the symposium follows the Transportation Research Board meeting, researchers traveling to the USA from around the world, and specifically from the Pacific Rim countries may find the symposium a convenient stop for focused academic exchange on selected topics. The intended participants are academics, researchers, graduate students and industry professionals in transportation who stay abreast with the latest research developments in the field.  We are particularly interested in new research ideas that may be still under development or involve preliminary results.

Venue: The Arnold & Mabel Beckman Center, a conference facility of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering, that is situated at the campus of the University of California, Irvine.  The weather in January is comfortably warm, and the facility is conveniently located just 5 miles from Newport Beach, 50 miles from Los Angeles, 3 miles from the Santa Ana airport and 40 miles from the LAX international airport. Nearby attractions include Disneyland 30 minutes away and Hollywood 1 hour away, by car.

The conference presentations and posters are selected based on online submission of Abstracts (no more than 200 words)
in the following broad areas.

Theme areas:

  1. Data analytics and computational schemes in transportation
  2. Connected/ Autonomous/ Shared Systems in Transportation
  3. Advances in demand and activity system modeling
  4. Advances in modeling and analysis for sustainability
  5. Modeling and analysis of transportation system control
  6. Advances in technology and user-centric applications
  7. Transit, freight, land-use and mobility planning
