Transportation and Space-time Economics (TSTE 2019)

11-13 October, 2019 | Beijing, China


Call for papers for a Special Session of the 7th International Conference on Transportation and Space-time Economics (TSTE), 11-13 October 2019, Beijing, China



Special Session: Transportation Resilience

Resilience represents the ability of a system to adapt and recover from various disturbances, which is a critical property needed for understanding and analyzing the risks and reliability of transportation systems. To slow, diminish, and shrink the spatiotemporal jammed clusters, lead to improved system resilience, and realize sustainable systems, understanding the adaptation and recovery behavior of transportation system from various perturbations in the future smart city era is of great importance. Moreover, developing the data-driven methods and model-based technologies, searching for the empirical evidence of transportation resilience, and revealing the law of its intrinsic behavior are very challenging questions from both theoretical and practical perspectives. As a venue for discussing these emerging issues, this special session is proposed to call for submissions of recent research advances in theoretical and practical aspects of transportation resilience, from both the academic and industrial sectors. The aim of this special session is to better evaluate the system risk and reliability, develop advanced data-driven and model-based methods, predict system evolution behavior and help to ensure a healthy and sustainable transportation systems. This special session invites contributions to address research problems related to risk analysis, reliability study, resilience evaluation, and sustainability assessment in any transportation systems. It attempts to promote knowledge exchange and scientific excellence in this intriguing field.


The scopes and topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1.Resilience in urban traffic

2.Resilience in metro systems

3.Resilience in freight transportation

4.Resilience in aviation networks

5.Risk analysis


7.Spatio-temporal propagation of congestion



10.Prognostic and health management

11.Urban computing

12.Data-driven methods

13.Model-based methods

14.Statistical analysis of uncertainty

15.Traffic resilience and congestion prediction

16.Implications for relevant policy makers

Submitted papers through a strict review process will be recommended to and published in the Special Issue of SCI/SSCI journals.
