More for Less with Intelligent Transport Systems

Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum Millenium Point Curzon Street Birmingham B4 7XG


ITS United Kingdom is the UK’s society for all who work in the Intelligent Transport Systems sector.  Our annual conference is designed to bring together ITS professionals from all areas of the industry and offers a broad perspective on ITS and wide opportunities for making and renewing contacts.  The theme for our 2011 conference is how ITS can help those responsible for transport delivery policy and strategy deliver their objectives at a time of financial austerity.

Presentations will cover examples of where ITS has already been used to deliver more for less and also details of current ITS research or project work which will deliver more for less in the future. Presentations focus on defining and evidencing more and take their themes from many different areas of transport and ITS implementations including the movement of both people and goods and a range of transport modes.

Young professionals are particularly welcome to attend and ITS (UK) would like to see many more young professionals attend as delegates.
