The International Symposium on Multimodal Transportation (ISMT) aims to promote frontier studies and technologies in transportation system modeling, optimization, and management, and provide an opportunity to share knowledge and exchange ideas on state-of-the-art topics covering all modes (e.g., road, rail, air, maritime, and the integration of them) in multimodal transportation systems. Of particular interest are the multimodal and intermodal transportation on improving the system performance in terms of theories from the transportation, logistics, economics, operations research, and urban planning. Special emphasis is given on critical initiatives to promote practical applications which can be applied to real-world and large-scale scenarios with stochasticity and dynamics. The participants of the ISMT are welcome from both academia and industries.
With the emerging technologies (e.g., Smart Mobility, Internet Plus, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, and 5G Mobile Communication Technology, etc.), the ISMT dedicates to build a modern and high-quality integrated transportation network that is convenient and smooth, economical and efficient, green and intensive, intelligent and advanced, and safe and reliable, around the world.
