Transportation engineering is a broad disciplinary research field in applied sciences that studies various and numerous problems related to the planning, design, management, and control of transportation systems. In this context, several problems can be formulated and solved with mathematical, statistical, optimization, and technological tools; this research field is often multidisciplinary, involving physics, mathematical, environmental, energetic, and human behavioral aspects.
This Special Issue wants to contribute to this wide research field, urging submissions of high-quality papers in the following topics:
Transport modeling and control
Demand modeling and travel behavior
Model calibration and simulation
Dynamic network modeling
Simulation and optimization of transportation systems
Control and management of transportation systems
Traffic flow modeling and short-term predictions
Vehicle routing and route planning
Human factors, minds, and cognition
Energy consumption and emission modeling
Transportation Planning and operation
Rail operations and management
Multimodal transportation and terminals
Airport and air transport operations
Port and maritime operations
Land use and transport interactions
Mobility as a Service
Smart cities and smart mobility
Urban mobility innovations
Data collection methods for passenger and freight
Interoperability and interconnection of transport systems

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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 2000 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.
