ISEP 2012 - Call for papers


Slovenian ITS Association under umbrella of the Electrotechnical Association of Slovenia will organize the jubilee 20th International Symposium on Electronics in Transport – ISEP which promotes the strategic objective of integrating and strengthening the European Research Area in Slovenia as well as in the other member States, Accession States and in some nearby countries.

The Symposiums’ 2012 theme is “Linking People with ITS”. This theme brings focus to the importance of planning, developing and using innovative traffic infrastructure and vehicles in the way that they will cooperate with different telematics applications especially to provide critical information to existing riders and encourage non-riders to became public transport users. Intelligent Transport Systems and Services continue to be deployed across Europe at an increasing pace for all modes of transport. 

But, the current ITS, logistics or public transport solutions cannot meet the challenges modern society is facing today. Therefore, some questions could be addressed: Can sustainable transport profit lesser road user charges, and if so, is ITS the means to measure this? How can we help public authorities to develop an integrated view on ITS, including its strategy development? Is the right next step: “multi-modal, mobile, networked, pervasive, ... with a particular business model”?

On the other hand, it is of great importance to establish a research network of Slovenia and nearby countries in the area of ITS and tie it to the European and regional research. Each of you will come with your own aspirations to the Symposium will share them with old and new colleagues.

Unique to this event is the encouragement of participation by PhD students who are involved in current state-of-the-art transport research and practical issues concerning ITS. The symposium will give PhD students the opportunity to present their PhD work to a knowledgeable audience. At the same time, it will offer the opportunity for the presentation of achievements of Slovene and foreign researchers. 

Further, the symposium gives participants from ministries, universities, research organisations and industry the opportunity to establish personal contacts with the aim of stimulating the efficient transfer of research results to the market, according to the needs and expectations of users of all modes of transportation.

The aim of the symposium is also to encourage dialogue and cooperation among the participants who are involved in solving the problems and looking for common solutions.

ISEP Symposium is focusing on the following topics:

  • ITS technologies in and for all modes of transport,
  • Policy, strategy and standards for future ITS,
  • The role of ITS in railways, air and maritime traffic,
  • ITS: saving time and lives,
  • Congestion control and reduction,
  • Communications supporting mobility

  • Human aspect in ITS,
  • Efficiency in long distance freight,
  • Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to infrastructure communication technologies and applications,
  • Road pricing,
  • Incident detection and emergency management,
  • The policy and sociology of ITS communications,
  • Traffic simulation and modelling,
