Subject: TRB Task Force on Knowledge Management Call for Presentations: How
Smart Cities Manage Knowledge
Dear Stacey Bricka ABJ30, MacroSys Research and Technology,
The TRB Task Force on Knowledge Management is now accepting relevant
presentations for our upcoming 2020 TRB meeting. Considering the relevance
between your Standing Committee on Urban Transportation Data and Information
Systems and our Taskforce on Knowledge Management, we see value in sharing
this invitation with your members. Could you kindly help us circulate this
"Call for Presentations" amongst your committee membership?
Are you involved in a Smart City either as a researcher or practitioner? Or
know someone who is? And want to share your research or experiences at TRB
2020? Please read the announcement below and click the links for the
The TRB Task Force on Knowledge Management has issued a
_Presentations_2020.pdf> Call for Presentations for the upcoming TRB Annual
Meeting 2020 on how a Smart City manages its knowledge assets in pursuit of
mobility excellence. Specifically, we're looking for attempts by smart
cities teams to:
* identify critical knowledge needs and gaps;
* capture, share, and apply unique expert "know how";
* capture, share, and apply lessons learned;
* identify and codify "best practices";
* establish communities of practice or peer networks; or create and
use collaboration tools or knowledge portals.
Due Date: Proposals are due by September 6, 2019 (updated).
For Details: Please read the

Special Issue, Last Call for Papers in Journal of Advanced Transportation
"Infrastructure Adaptability in Connected and Autonomous Vehicle-Enabled
Traffic Flow Dynamics"
Deadline for submission of full papers: August 16, 2019.
Advancements in information and communication technology, coupled with
smart infrastructure systems, mean that extensive development of connected
and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) is anticipated over the next few decades.
CAV systems not only bring many opportunities to improve transportation,
but also pose challenges for infrastructure adaptation. More specifically,
the transition from human-driven to computer-driven vehicles might require
changes to road markings, signage and signalization, traffic management
measures, service stations, and access management. New research is emerging
from developing CAV systems which aims to tackle the question of how CAVs
can function efficiently, reliably, and safely on existing infrastructures,
and how infrastructures can be improved to speed up the deployment of CAV
This special issue aims to compile recent studies related to infrastructure
adaptability in relation to CAV-enabled traffic flow dynamics. Original
research and review articles related to infrastructure design, operation,
maintenance, improvement, and investment for CAV systems will be
considered. All aspects of theory, simulation, mathematical, and real
experimentation are of interest. The focus is also on the use of big data
generated from multiple sources to better understand the interactions
between CAV-enabled traffic flows and various infrastructures, with respect
to network capacity and traffic safety.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Value, role, and impact of various infrastructures on CAV-enabled
traffic flow dynamics
- Demonstration and simulation of communication technologies in CAV
- Unconventional design of infrastructure adapted to CAV systems
- Existing infrastructure maintenance and improvement to support CAVs
- CAV impacts on design, operation, and management of different
- Big data analytics in interactions between CAV-enabled traffic flow
- Simulation, evaluation, and optimization of new infrastructure
- Human factors and safety performance in infrastructure
- Financial analysis of infrastructure investments to maximize the
benefits of CAVs
- Policy analysis on alternative CAV-related infrastructure and other
Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System
Papers are published upon acceptance, regardless of the Special Issue
