Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 8th International Conference on Traffic Engineering and Transportation Systems will be held in Dalian, China, on September 20–22, 2024. ICTETS 2024 invites the submission of substantial, original, and unpublished research papers regarding transportation systems, transportation planning, traffic control and information technology, controlling methods for logistics and supply chains, etc.

In recent years, urban structures and logistics systems have undergone significant changes, posing new challenges and opportunities for traffic engineering and transportation systems. The methods to address these evolving issues are continuously enhanced through iterative upgrades, particularly in the areas of transportation systems, supply chain control measures, and the integration of new multi-mode transportation systems. Concurrently, research efforts have been focused on advancing the theory, application, safety, and integration of these innovations in transportation engineering.

Our proposed Special Issue aims to further explore innovations in traffic engineering and logistics management. This Special Issue will provide an opportunity for researchers to expand on the topics presented at ICTETS 2024 and delve deeper into the advancements shaping the transportation industry. By aligning with the themes of the conference, this Special Issue aims to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration among experts in the field, ultimately contributing to the development of a more efficient and sustainable transportation and logistics system.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
