Keynote title: Location-based Services Revisited

Abstract: Location-based Services have developed as a rapid answer to the mobile information era. Research, technologies and developments have been pursued to allow in breathtaking short time applications of mobile services,navigation systems and all kind of diverse applications, from outdoor to indoor and mixed outdoor/indoor environments, from location based to context-aware, from maps and audio to more diverse and ‘natural’ interfaces, from technology-oriented to interdisciplinary applications. In the meantime, LBS is a ubiquitous underpinning technology of daily mass use applications. So, what is left and where to now? Some aspects of concerns and possible directions will be discussed.

Harvey J. Miller is Professor at the Department of Geography at the Ohio State University, Columbus, USA
Keynote title: Why is sustainable mobility so hard? Some observations on the paths forward.

Abstract: Mobility is central to urbanity, and urbanity is central to our common future as the world's population crowds into urban areas. This is creating a global mobility crisis due to the unsustainability of our 20th century transportation systems for a crowded and connected world. We need to move beyond inflexible, unsustainable and brittle car-dominated mobility monocultures to flexible, sustainable and resilient mobility polycultures with a wide spectrum of integrated mobility options. This transition is hard because mobility is complex, a wicked problem and a fundamental social dilemma. In this talk, I will discuss how we can leverage the urban data revolution to resolve these challenges. In particular, I will discuss the role of next generation urban observatory science that respects complexity, embraces uncertainty and conflicting values, facilitates urban experimentation and creates environments for collaboration and knowledge co-production. I will identify the major scientific challenges, merits and broader impacts of the observatory approach to transportation and urban science.
