Calls for Papers/Book Chapters

WISE-ACT is co-ordinating a Special Issue in the MDPI Sustainability Open Access journal focusing on user preferences and AVs among other topics. This Special Issue is linked with the large scale international WISE-ACT survey of 2020. More information about this Special Issue is available here.

Special Issue Editors:

  • Prof. Yoram Shiftan
  • Prof. Amalia Polydoropoulou
  • Dr Nikolas Thomopoulos
  • Dr Valentina Rappazzo

Papers in this Special Issue are invited by experts from any sustainability-related discipline to address the wider impacts of ACT based on empirical evidence and surveys of user preferences and acceptance levels. Survey data could be attitudinal data, revealed preference data or stated preference data based on future scenarios. All papers should also make explicit links with socioeconomic, business or policy implications of sustainable deployment of ACT. Large-scale surveys, surveys using innovative data collection or presentation methods, and cross-country comparisons are particularly welcome. The dissemination of research results, tests, developments, and applications will be crucial to steer the governance concerning the spread of ACT, with the aim to effectively and truly contribute to a more sustainable transport.

Indicative topics of this Special Issue may include:

  • Identifying the key behavioural, economic, social, demographic or cultural factors determining the attitude of transport users towards ACT;
  • Analysing the behaviour of ACT users by comparing their choices through revealed or stated preference experiments;
  • Reviewing and evaluating the value of travel time for ACT;
  • Evaluating socio-economic challenges of ACT, e.g., equity, privacy, security;
  • Adjusting survey methods and suggest innovative data collection methodologies for ACT.

Submission Deadline: 31st July 2020

Contact Editor: Dr Valentina Rappazzo

This Open Access Special Issue is partially funded by COST, which supports contributions co-authored by participants from at least three COST countries.

Proposed papers for this Special Issue may analyze how impacts of shared mobility can change or not if migrating to a different car fleet and how this would impact on the environment, concerning the entire life cycle of the transport system. Papers should focus on whether and how the adoption of electric and autonomous vehicles could impact on air quality and which effect it could have on climate change and global GHG emissions.


Submission Deadline: 31st July 2020
Contact Editor: Prof. Cristina Pronello

COST supports contributions co-authored by participants from at least three COST countries.

Given the wide interest across our Action about the AV related policy implications, we invite abstract submission to be considered for the forthcoming Policy implications of Autonomous Vehicles edited book volume. This book volume will follow the standard review process and will be part of the Elsevier book series Advances in Transport Policy and Planning edited by Prof. Bert van Wee.


The first  Call for Abstracts has been released:

Abstracts: up to 400 words
Submission to: book [AT] wise-act.eu
Submission deadline: 15th January 2019

COST supports contributions co-authored by participants from at least three COST countries and offers specific opportunities for ECIs and those from ITCs.

You may find the Policy Implications of Autonomous Vehicles – Volume 5 book at the Elsevier webpage of the Advances in Transport Policy book series.
