Transport-related decisions can contribute significantly to achieving climate neutrality, due to the adaptation of transport systems serving as a factor in transport efficiency.

In this context, the application of digital technologies for use in automation, sensors, and communication technologies as they pertain to the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems, makes it possible to respond to transportation needs with sustainable solutions.

To recognize the worldwide sustainable innovative approaches and efforts that contribute to accelerating climate-neutral transport, it is a great honor to announce the establishment of the IEEE ITSS Presidential Prize for Sustainability in Transportation. IEEE ITSS, as a pioneer in the recognition and promotion of technologies towards sustainable transport, will use this prize to contribute towards increasing awareness of a prompt reduction of greenhouse emissions.

A dedicated prize selection committee will evaluate the received applications. The recipient of the prize will be announced during the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSC 2022) in Macau, China. The awardee is expected to give a featured presentation of their work.

Applications will be accepted until June 15, 2022, using the Online Application Form.
