Call for Abstracts:
Big Data as Enabler for ITS

Transport has become data-driven and it introduces multiple issues for which we have to develop answers — sooner rather than later. Issues range from a policy to an operational level: What are the policy vacuums, how will we deal with concerns about protecting privacy and cyber security, where and how will data be warehoused, what will the institutional arrangements be and how do we share access to data? These are some of the questions that we need to explore, and urgently.

ITS South Africa is hosting a workshop and Big Data applications on 26 October 2016 in Cape Town.

We cordially invite members and interested parties to:

  • Submit an abstract to present at the workshop;
  • Be the event sponsor.
