As chairs, Ronit Purian and Avi Cohen, SYN-RG-Ai, Tel Aviv University, and CODATA Task Group on Smart Cities Data invite papers for the Special Track on ‘Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and the Design Challenge of Inclusion, Sustainability, and Data Ownership’ at the Data for Policy Conference, UCL, September 14-16, 2021.
Track participants will be invited to submit articles to a Special Collection in Data & Policy through the journal’s peer review process, supported by the Data & Policy editorial team and publisher.
Special track details: https://
Submission is open until March 25 2021 via EasyChair: https://easychair.
- Spatial behavior crowdsourcing;
- Decentralized system design;
- Data provision and integration;
- Urban big data and AI ethics.
The chairs plan to carry out a collaborative interdisciplinary track that will define focus areas, activities, and priorities, e.g.: Needs assessment and knowledge gap analysis (the desirable data sources and tools); reflections on current studies (case studies – challenges, solutions; and how to generalize); operational research plans (national surveys, public concerns and perceptions in questionnaire items), and the like.
From the domain viewpoint: to define a cluster of mobility-related problems that are encountered by many cities.
From the data viewpoint: to define the data components we share in our research. The goal will be to facilitate open data, knowledge sharing, and data integration.
From the service viewpoint: to define the data sources and tools we use; what are the preferred integration and granularity (e.g., local-global); and how to achieve that.
To address such goals, we wish to invite researchers from different disciplines, who are interested in: Urban Resilience, spatial behavior, flexible mobility, data ownership, service design, and any other topic within the broad domains of smart cities, information systems, data science, and behavioral sciences.
