Smart Cities and value of time: transport planning for the ‘on move’ society

Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC), 18-19 January 2018

Call for papers

It is our pleasure to invite you to the first symposium about smart cities and value of time organized in Dominican Republic, as collaboration between the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC) and the University of Twente in the Netherlands. The symposium will be held at the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo

Main topic

Travel time and activity time have been treated as separate notions, albeit with some assumed interdependencies. But, literature show that people accept noticeable higher travel time ratios when travelling by public transport compared with travelling by car. The cost of travel time is reduced as travel time is converted as activity time (towards the productive use). Furthermore, the impact of a high quality journey is an important issue in lifestyle and distribution of activities. The efficiency, safety and productivity of the journey can be expected to impact the value of time. And, the proportion of travel time saved, which can be used for other activities might have positive effects on the quality of life. In recent years some significant ICT-related innovations have been introduced to large shares of society, but research on the current relation between characteristics of ICT-use and its impact on mobility is limited. Development of smart cities and urban living labs is strongly affected by the ICT use and mobility patterns. As urban living labs co-create new products from collaboration between public, private and civic partnerships. At the same time, in certain self-constrained environments, activity duration has many effects in travel patterns for out-of-home activities. Use of big data to model travel behaviour might bring important implications for individual mobility. Similarly, traffic safety and management of transport infrastructure are a main concern for government decisions in developing countries. This symposium aims to contribute to the debate on planning transport system and urban development according to the needs and activities undertaken by citizens of the modern ‘on move’ society.

Topics of interest

The symposium will focus on 4 topics:

1. Major Roads, social exclusion and accessibility analysis for scenarios of transport infrastructure

2. Public transport, value of time and multimodality of transport networks

3. Urban living labs and new urban developments in the context of developing countries

4. Traffic Safety and the role of infrastructure management

Venue

The symposium will take place at the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC). Av. Los Próceres, Galá.
