Technical Activities is a very important leg of every technical association, IEEE and ITSS in particular. Most of us, we are technicians, engineers, scientists, professors, etc. within a wide range of topics related to Intelligent Transportation.

​Technical Activities are all the collective activities that we organize as an association, such as Special Sessions, Workshops or Tutorials, at conferences; Public Demos; Disseminate Activities, to let the Big Public be aware of what’s the buzz at ITS; Challenges or Competitions; Summer Schools and more. As volunteers, we like to contribute to the community dedicating some of our time to organize all of that, because we like it!
