Traffic and demand management refers to measures such as parking management, reallocating urban space in favour of sustainable modes of transport (including shared space), access controls, road pricing, and traffic signal control strategies.
Park4SUMP is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project, which supports cities to adapt their parking management strategies as part of their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It aims to encourage innovative parking solutions to become part of cities’ SUMP and other city planning processes.

ICoTSC 2020 is an open forum where advances in the field of transport and smart Cities can be shared and examined. Researchers, engineers, scientists and industry professionals are welcomed to join this conference. which acts as a platform for keeping up with advances in this ever-changing field.
Over this three day event, a wide range of research topics will be discussed including both theoretical and systems research. Topics include, and more:
In the past few years, the number of cyclists in the Irish capital Dublin has been increasing steadily. Dublin City Council has been trialling the use of smart radar detectors to better count the number of cyclists in the city and to help cyclists travel more safely through the city. The initiative contributes to Dublin City Council’s objective of optimising traffic signals for all modes of transport.
The Swedish Vision Zero Initiative stresses the fact that the road transport system is an entity in which different components such as road users, vehicles, and infrastructure must be made to interact with each other so that safety can be guaranteed. The key focus of this conference will, therefore, be on the role that traffic and transport psychology can play in achieving a safe and sustainable transport system.
The conference is taking place on 23-25 August 2022. Keynote speakers include:
