    Dear Colleagues:

    In response to the pandemic, the ISTDM 2020 was postponed to June 21-23, 2021. We will hold the conference as planned, in a format of either in-person, virtual or hybrid.  More information will be provided on the conference website when the time is approaching.

    We are now calling for submissions to the 2021 International Symposium on Transportation Data and Modeling (ISTDM) on June 21-23, 2021 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. ISTDM 2021 aims to gather transportation researchers and practitioners across the globe for exploring the frontiers of big data, modeling and simulation to advance transportation research to support the connected, cooperative and automated mobility. With a greater focus on emerging technologies, ISTDM 2021 rebrands the two long-standing transportation symposia: International Symposium of Transport Simulation (ISTS), and the International Workshop on Traffic Data Collection and its Standardization (IWTDCS).

    We would like to invite you to participate in this exciting event. To present at the conference, an extended abstract (1,000 words) should be submitted electronically via the conference website (the submission website has been open October 1). The previously accepted submissions will be valid pending the authors' confirmation. During the three-day conference, plenary sessions featuring renowned speakers and interactive breakout sessions will take place.

    Further information about the conference, topics of interest, and the important dates can be found below, as well as the attached flyer.

    We look forward to seeing you at ISTDM2021!

    Sincerely,
    ISTDM 2021 Organizing Committee
