ABOUT THE SUMMIT
The transport industry is transforming at a rapid rate. New technologies, ideas and partnerships are driving change. The 5th Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit is when the ITS industry comes together for two days of pushing the boundaries.
Join hosts, ITS Australia and industry leaders review challenges and opportunities, with program themes focusing on Connected and Automated Vehicles, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and Transport for Smart Cities. Respected international and Australian thought-leaders from aligned sectors will bring a new dimension, expanding the discussion and providing wider perspectives. With networking, social functions and technical tours, the Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit is a must for government, business, academia and start-ups.
Following on from the success of the 23rd ITS World Congress held in Melbourne in October 2016, the 5th Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit 2017 will look to continue the conversation and explore technology trends. The growing international focus on connected autonomy and smart cities and where advanced transport is a key driver for the provision of intelligent infrastructure across the transport network.
Hosted by ITS Australia, the Australian ITS Summit is a must attend event for every ITS professional – whether you are doing business in Australasia, looking to export your expertise, or wanting to connect and grow your network base, this will be an opportunity for policy makers, practitioners, researchers and ITS providers to share information addressing modern transport issues.
New Summit Format
Owing to the growing interest in the ITS Sector and the high level of activity in Australia, ITS Australia will now be hosting an ITS Summit each year – with a slightly alternating format each year – so as to meet different industry needs:
- 2017 – Keynote speaker focus event with all delegates in a single auditorium to hear from international transport technology leaders and aligned industry leaders. This two day event will have modest exhibition element with technical tours in the third day.
- 2018 – Traditional Summit format with keynote presenters in plenaries, a call for papers and multiple technical streams enabling delegates to focus on their specialty area. This event will have a larger exhibition, with more information to come in 2018.
