The Symposiums’ 2011 theme is “ITS – Connecting Transport”. This theme brings focus to the importance of planning, developing and using innovative traffic infrastructure and vehicles in the way that they will cooperate with different telematics applications. Intelligent Transport Systems and Services continue to be deployed across Europe at an increasing pace for all modes of transport. ITS and related new technologies are now seen as crucial in contributing to transport efficiency and safety, as well as helping to reduce emissions and environment damage. The introduction of ITS greatly facilitates the interaction of all transport modes working together, including air sector and sea programme.
The aim of the symposium is also to encourage dialogue and cooperation among the participants who are involved in solving the problems and looking for common solutions.
