The theme for ICTH 2019 is
"Smart Cities. Disruptive Mobility. Healthy People."
Late Breaker abstracts are invited on the general headings listed below with sub-headings indicating the specific categories; all within the overarching theme of transport and health. Note that an "Other" category is included under each main heading to encourage inclusion of abstracts that do not seem to fit into the general thematic category.
Please note that to present at ICTH 2019-Melbourne, your abstract
need to focus on technology or disruptive mobility. The overall theme of the conference will highlight emerging issues of smart cities and disruptive mobility; however the primary focus is the impact of transport (and urban/rural) planning and design on quality of life, health and well-being in communities.
