Growing urbanisation, rising vehicle ownership, globalisation of economies and shortage of resources has posed major challenges to the transportation sector. Mobility, accessibility and safety continue to be daunting challenges to transportation professionals’ world over. In this context, cutting edge research that could provide sustainable solutions to transport related problems is the need of the hour. Conference on Transportation Systems Engineering and Management (CTSEM) aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, research scholars and post graduate students in different areas of Transportation Engineering and Management. Earlier CTSEMs were organised in 2014 at NIT Calicut, 2015 at NIT Tiruchirapalli, 2016 at RV College of Engineering, Bangalore and 2017 at Anna University, Chennai, 2018 at NIT Warangal, 2019 at SVNIT, Surat, 2020 at NATPAC and CoE, Trivandrum and 2021 at NIT Calicut. The objectives of this 9th CTSEM are to provide an opportunity for the post graduate students, research scholars and transportation professionals to present their work and network with the peers; learn about advancements and applications in their fields; minimise the duplication of research efforts and arrive at future directions for research.
9th CTSEM will cover the conceptual aspects related to transport planning, traffic engineering and pavement technology.
