IIID Traffic & Transport 2011 - Call for Speakers
The information interface linking users to mobility purveyors of the full range of options available in any given city holds the key to the future of sustainable transport in and around our cities. It is, as we all know here, not new motorway construction or expansion, nor heavy rail, and certainly not EVs, or PRT, etc. etc.
In my humble opinion (?), this is the most important single technology area for the public sector to step up to the plate and get behind innovation, demonstrations, and collaborative learning that is before policy makers today.
How can we get policy makers in both international organizations and at the national level to understand this and do what they can to get behind this important area of social-technical innovation? For now, they hold the key.
Of course there will be innovations at the level of specific projects, specific city implementations and other sources of innovation. But it would be a wonderful thing if we had a clearer public policy perspective on all this.
So here you have the full details on their conference and if you will, pass it on.
All the best/Eric Britton

IIID Expert Forum - Call for Speakers
Dear Eric Britton
The International Institute for Information Design (IIID) in Vienna continues its highly successful Expert Forum Traffic & Transport Information Systems into the 6th year. Unsurpassed in its field, this year's event is focused on Traffic, Transport and Social Media. Social media facilitates the generation and communication of ideas and information in a much more convenient manner than traditional platforms, and makes market research obsolete by providing public opinion at little or no cost.
The Expert Forum will focus on the impacts of social media, how to design services, adjust policies, and communicate improvements as well as evaluating user/customer reactions.
In addition to the main conference, Innovations in traffic & transport information is a special session focused on innovative projects and results beyond real time information. The session is geared to the interests of information managers, designers and educators whose professional focus is on traffic and transport information.
If your interest and expertise relates to the topic for 2011, we encourage you to submit a proposal (submission deadline: 8 April 2011). More information about the event and details about the Call for Speakers can be found at www.iiid-expertforum.net.
We look forward to receiving your submission and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Data transformed into high quality information empower people to attain goals.
