Special Issues

Upon submission of the paper for the proceedings, please indicate whether you like to submit another, more lengthy paper for publication. Currently, the organizing committee is looking into the possibility of having two special issues in two major journals: the Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems and Physical Review E. Based on the interest, we will invite authors to submit their journal article, which will undergo a normal review procedure. The journal articles do not have a length restriction and should follow the format of the journals of interest.

Further information will be provided to the authors as the conference date approaches.
