ITS European Congress.

Strasbourg, France, 19–22 June 2017. Europe's leading event for intelligent transport specialists.



The European Programme Committee invites ITS experts to submit Special Interest Sessions (SIS) proposals and papers to be considered for presentation and publication at the ITS European Congress in Strasbourg.

  • A draft submission is required for all types of paper. The reviewers will need enough content to be able to judge your paper appropriately so for Scientific Papers we require a minimum of 9 pages and a maximum of 12. For technical or Commercial Papers we require a minimum of 5 pages and a maximum of 10 pages.
  • It is not necessary to submit the same paper under different types Technical / Scientific / Commercial.
  • Papers which are submitted as Scientific Papers, but which are not judged to be of this top rating standard or
    relevance, may still be accepted as Technical Papers.
  • Technical and Commercial papers will be put to a technical review and authors will be notified if they are
    accepted or conditionally accepted.
  • Authors of draft papers that are accepted will be asked to submit a final version. This can be a confirmation of the draft text but it is also an opportunity to update the paper, add diagrams or tables of results etc.
  • As before, for conditionally accepted papers authors need to revise their paper addressing the reservations of the reviewers while submitting in final version of the document.- All proposals must be original and report on recent significant and substantive achievements.
  • Topics may address any mode of transport.
  • The official Congress language is English. Papers not submitted in English will automatically be rejected.
  • We will not normally allow authors to submit more than 2 papers. Also, we will not normally allocate more than 2
    speaking opportunities for presenting papers.
  • Contributions can only be submitted through the online submission system.
