World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems visits Melbourne

By on 19 April, 2016


The 23rd World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) will span five days this October at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Registrations are now open with earlybird pricing ending 5 July.

Proudly hosted by ITS Australia, on behalf of ITS Asia Pacific, ERTICO and ITS America, the World Congress is themed ITS – Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities. More than 7,000 delegates from more than 60 countries are expected to attend, among them will be Australian and international ITS professionals, government and major city representatives, industry and business leaders, and university and school students.

The Congress will include Plenary and keynote speakers, special interest sessions and more than 300 exhibitors.

Attendees will also be able to experience demonstrations and go on behind-the-scenes technical tours to the Port of Melbourne, the largest container port in the Southern Hemisphere, Melbourne Airport and traffic management centres for the city’s road, rail and tram network.

Lord Mayor of Melbourne Robert Doyle said the world’s most liveable city has a strong reputation for welcoming conference delegates.

“Melbourne is the ideal city to host the 2016 ITS Congress as we are home to commerce, education, health, sport, cultural and residential areas which can all be accessed by foot, on bike, via public transport or in vehicles,” the Lord Mayor said.

“Connectivity, safety and sustainability have been essential elements of Melbourne’s liveability and prosperity.”

ITS Australia CEO Susan Harris said the Congress is an opportunity to explore the benefits that intelligent transport systems deliver to cities and communities.

“ITS technologies include communication, data processing and electronic technologies for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and mode-to-mode systems that increase transport safety and mobility, improve the sustainability of travel, reduce congestion and improve the performance and competitiveness of all modes of transport.

“This is an opportunity for delegates to share knowledge, connect and engage, and participate in discussions and decision making which will shape future transport, mobility and infrastructure in Australia and around the world,” Ms Harris said.
