Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will consist of manuscripts describing the state-of-the-art of transport modeling for smart cities.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • models and methods for the description of transport demand, transport supply, users and their activities, management and control in transport systems, and mobility management;
  • models with different details of mapping of transport systems and transport processes, including, among others, microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic models;
  • models and methods describing the impact of intelligent transportation system (ITS) services and cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS) services on user decisions about mobility;
  • models and methods describing user activities, including virtual activities (e.g., telework, online communication), and space–time geography for transportation processes modeling;
  • models and methods combining spatial planning and transport planning, including ITS systems and mobility management for facilities in urban areas;
  • models and methods of describing activities shaping the sustainable development of the city and sustainable use of transport systems;
  • impact of smart transportation systems on the quality of life in smart cities;
  • models and methods of planning the transformation of cities functioning at different levels of transport development into a "Smart City";
  • traffic flow control with emerging technologies;
  • impacts of emerging transportation technologies and services on smart city.

Manuscripts that emphasize either method development or applications are encouraged. Both original papers and review articles are welcome; modeauthors interested in submitting a review article are encouraged to contact the editor in advance to discuss the scope.

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. Computation is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
