Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 28th International Scientific Conference, TRANSPORT MEANS 2024, will take place from 2 to 4 October 2024 in Kaunas, Lithuania. The session on waterborne transport will be held on October 4 at Klaipėda University, Bijūnų Str. 17, Klaipėda, Lithuania. Our conference will facilitate discussion, interaction, and knowledge exchange among researchers, industries, and engineers. We continue a long-standing tradition of addressing the most relevant scientific and practical issues in transport engineering. The conference focuses on live interaction among participants, but there is also some scope for a limited number of virtual oral and poster presentations.

The reports cover a wide variety of topics related to the most pressing issues of today’s development of transport systems, including smart, green, and integrated transport. This challenge aims to boost the competitiveness of the European transport industries and achieve a European transport system that is resource-efficient, climate- and environmentally friendly, safe, and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy, and society. Resource-efficient transport respects the environment by making aircrafts, vehicles, and vessels cleaner and quieter to minimize the impact on the climate and environment, as well as by developing smart equipment, infrastructures, and services and by improving transport and mobility in urban areas.

The conference is organized by the Kaunas University of Technology in cooperation with Klaipeda University, IFToMM National Committee of Lithuania, Lithuanian Society of Automotive Engineers, The Division of Technical Sciences of Lithuanian Academy of Sciences, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VILNIUS TECH). The main areas covered in the plenary session and in the sections include (but are not limited to) design development, the maintenance and exploitation of transport means, the implementation of advanced transport technologies, the development of defense transport, environmental and social impacts, advanced and intelligent transport systems, transport demand management, traffic control, the specifics of transport infrastructure, safety and pollution problems, integrated and sustainable transport, and the modeling and simulation of transport systems and elements.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
