Vienna hosts the 19th World Congress on ITS (Intelligent transport systems)

24. April 2012

The 19th ITS World Congress will be held from 22 to 26 October 2012 in Vienna, under the header ITS Vienna 2012 – Smarter on the way

The main responsibilities of Intelligent Transport Systems are to make traffic safer, more efficient and more environmentally friendly. Personalised traffic information is a key theme at the annual ITS World Congresses.

Around a thousand technical lectures will be held, dedicated to three core areas of ITS: providing efficiency, safety and environmental sustainability in transport. The Austrian Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology expects around 3.000 experts at the conference. At the accompanying industry exhibition, 300 companies from about 65 countries will display their cutting-edge developments in areas such as driver assistance, traffic management and navigation.

We are proud that Vienna will be hosting this year’s congress. Vienna is easily accessible from more than 176 countries around the world. Austria has a well-deserved reputation for its integrated transport system, excellent standard of living and lively culture. The capital of Austria offers the best standard of living among any city in the world, according to the ‘Mercer 2010 Quality of Living survey’. Why not come and join us in Austria from 22 to 26 October 2012 to see how ITS can make us all ‘smarter on the way’.
