Prior to the ITS World Congress taking place in Vienna from 22
to 26 October 2012 the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation
and Technology tendered the "ITS Scientific Award". Until 30 June
2012 students were asked to submit their thesis or dissertation on
various ITS-related topics. Eight dissertations and 16 master
theses were submitted by students from the Universities of
Technology in Vienna and Graz, from the Universities in Salzburg
and Linz, as well as from the Vienna-based University of Natural
Resources and Life Sciences and the UAS Technikum Wien. But also
from beyond the boarders of Austria submissions were made, like
from the Universities of Technology in Munich and Brunswick, the
University of Kassel and the Czech Technical University in
The variety of topics is truly remarkable, reaching from
controlling and manipulating individual transport to inland
navigation logistics and rail transport. Fortunately also five
female students took the opportunity to participate in this call.
An exalted international expert jury will review the papers.
The award presentation will take place within the framework of the
congresses' public day on 25 October 2012. The prizes will be
presented by Minister Doris Bures.
