Sustainable Mobility Part 1

Sustainable mobility is one of the emerging topics of our time. On the one hand mobility in the sense of moving persons and goods is one of the central functions for a successful economy and a worth living society. On the other hand, mobility contributes the highest CO2 emissions besides the energy production and is connected to many other negative effects in the ecological, economical and social dimension of sustainability. However many activities in industry and research as well address this topic, e.g. in the field of electric mobility or in the context of smart cities and regions.

ICT solutions are able to make mobility more effective and to reduce negative effects of mobility. This workshop addresses these ICT solutions for a more sustainable mobility in a wide-spreaded area of topics, e.g.:

  • Urban mobility
  • Mobility in rural regions
  • Sustainable mobility providers
  • Smart travel planning and assistance
  • Electric mobility
  • Sustainable transport and green logistics

This workshop will give researchers a platform to present actual results of their work and to discuss it with the participants of the conference.
