1st Webinar on Future Transportation

Influential Papers in Future Transportation

Currently, technology and climate change are revolutionizing the way people and goods are moving. I am happy to introduce this inaugural session of presentations devoted to Future Transportation. This is the first in a series of online seminars dedicated to some of the most important papers published in MDPI’s Future Transportation journal.

Future Transportation is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal published quarterly online by MDPI that covers civil engineering, economics, environment and geography, computer science and other transdisciplinary dimensions of transportation.

This session presents two highly influential papers in a Special Issue of the journal dedicated to Feature Papers. The presentations cover high-speed rail and mobility apps and the speakers are leading European researchers from Italy and Spain. Given the high-quality research, the topics, and the caliber of the presenters, I expect it to be an exciting session.
