RSS2019 Conference Theme - Transformations in Transportation

Technology is transforming transportation at an accelerated rate, introducing radical shifts in the roles of all roadway users. Increasing levels of automation, connected vehicles, and roads users connected through cell phone applications and other media devices are just a few examples of developments (or changes) on the horizon (that are becoming realities).

Conference Topics Include, but are not Limited to:

  • Automated Vehicles Technology - Road users' responses to, interactions with, and perceptions of automated vehicles, augmented reality, and in-vehicle safety systems
  • Connected Vehicles Technology - User responses to, interactions with, and perceptions of connected vehicles technology (e.g., V2V, V2P, I2B)
  • Vulnerable Road Users - Interactions between types of road users and risk factors for collisions with vehicles (e.g., transportation workers, bicyclists, children, and the elderly)
  • Roadway Infrastructure Design - Safety of drivers', bicyclists', and pedestrians' interactions with roadway infrastructure designs
  • Distributed Simulation Technology - Understanding real-time traffic conflicts between drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians through connected simulation

Paper Submission & Review

Following your accepted abstract, please prepare your full paper following the RSS2019 paper template format. Please submit your full paper in PDF format via EasyChair by updating your submitted abstract file with your full paper file. Full papers are due 1 May 2019.

Please note that full papers must include research results in order to be considered for paper review. On-going studies that present preliminary results at this stage, but can guarantee to present the full results by the conference date, will also be considered for paper review. 

Full paper submissions will be peer reviewed by the Technical and Scientific Committee. Review assignments will be based on area of expertise. Each paper will be assigned to three reviewers who will provide feedback on the paper content and recommendations on paper acceptance. Accepted papers will be selected either for oral presentation or poster presentation. Review criteria include:

  • Paper structure
  • Research methodology
  • Originality
  • Validity of results
  • Scientific contribution

Paper authors will be asked to revise papers based on reviewer comments and submit a final paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings. During submission, authors have various options regarding inclusion in conference proceedings and consideration for special issues.
