Registrations now open for 2016 ITS World Congress in Melbourne, Australia

Registrations are now open for the 2016 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems, which is taking place in Melbourne, Australia, on October 10-14.

Hosted by ITS Australia, on behalf of ITS Asia Pacific, ERTICO-ITS Europe, and ITS America, the 23rd World Congress will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center, and is themed ‘ITS - Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities’.

More than 7,000 delegates from more than 60 countries are expected to attend the five-day annual Congress, and 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 centers 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,” Doyle said. “Connectivity, safety and sustainability have been essential elements of Melbourne’s liveability and prosperity.”

ITS Australia’s 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.”
