AI for Urban Mobility Workshop

Description of the Workshop

The expected increase in urbanisation in 21st century, coupled with the socio-economic motivation for increasing mobility, is going to push the transport infrastructure well beyond its current capacity. In response, more stringent and intelligent control mechanisms are required to better monitor, exploit, and react to unforeseen conditions. With an increasing attention towards autonomous vehicles which can assist or even replace human drivers it is important to consider a number of challenges ranging from technological issues to road safety issues. Especially with increasing traffic intensity, especially in urban areas, maintaining high standards for the road safety for all users (e.g., traffic, bikes, pedestrians) is of the utmost importance along with minimisation of congestion and travel times and management of pollution.

Fortunately, a wide variety of data is becoming available to support novel innovations that improve urban mobility and transport. For example, data from traffic cameras, cell phone GPS data, ride-hailing services and even drones has significantly improved the quality and quantity of information available for intelligent real-time traffic solutions. Furthermore, modern (semi-)autonomous vehicles contain a plethora of sensing modalities as well as vehicle to vehicle as well as infrastructure communication abilities.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who leverage various AI techniques (e.g., Machine Learning, Automated Planning) for innovation in areas of Urban Mobility and Transportation.


This workshop seeks papers ranging from experience reports to the description of new technology leveraging AI various AI for innovation in any area of Urban Mobility and Transportation, such as (but not limited to):

Submission Instructions

Two types of papers can be submitted. Full technical papers with a length up to 8 pages are standard research papers. Short papers with a length between 2 and 4 pages can describe either a particular application, or focus on open challenges. All papers should conform to the AAAI style template. The submission is done via EasyChair.
