Special Issue: Advancing the Study of Intelligent Transport Systems: Selected Studies from UTSG2023

IET Intelligent Transport Systems
Call for Papers

This issue of IET ITS will consist of 8-10 selected papers drawn from the 55th Annual Universities’ Transport Study Group Conference, hosted by Cardiff University in July 2023. The Annual International UTSG Conference is the largest academic transport event in the UK and Ireland. It is a forum where researchers come together to discuss research needs, research in progress and recent findings, and to give research students the opportunity to present papers on their work ( We expect more than 80-100 papers to be submitted; the authors of the very best manuscripts that are aligned with the journal’s scope will be invited to have their papers considered for inclusion in this special issue. The papers submitted will be subject to a rigorous review process from the UTSG Executive Committee first and then from your typical review process. The papers of our special issue will reveal the range of academic research within the UTSG community, with differing research approaches and areas of study. The common denominator will be how the advancement of intelligent transport systems research is achieved; thus the title of the special issue. When we have the submissions available we will invite the very best papers to be submitted in IET ITS and hopefully we will be able to formulate a more tight thematic direction for the special issue. Our UTSG community will happily help us in building up the special issue by accepting and delivering promptly reviews.
