Dear Community of MT-ITS Conference Series,
 I am happy to share with you the link to our IEEE Xplore proceedings. They were published online 28 Oct and are available here: 

Sorry for the delay, we did our best to deliver it as soon as possible.
Indexing in databases is independent, yet we are positive that soon they will spread through web and will gain visibility (like previous editions).
 Thanks again for having you in Krakow in July and let me share with you the decision made by steering committee on the future edition:
Dear Community of MT-ITS Conference Series,
The voting period has come to an end, and we have a clear winner.
It is my pleasure to announce that the 7th edition will be organised by TU Munich in Heraklion - Crete, 
We look forward to seeing you all in 2021 more information will follow soon.

Best regards,

Future of MT-ITS

Dear participants, friends and supporters of MT-ITS,

since 2009 we have established a strong community meeting biannually to present our contributions in the narrow yet timely and interesting field of Models and Technologies for Intelligent Transportation Systems. MT-ITS has become a unique event where academia and practice meet and exchange ideas and results. Many of us have contributed to all its 6 past editions and has attended many if not all the editions.
We are sure there is future for this conferences and we are mature enough to formalize it and to guarantee maintaining its quality standards and its existence.
For this reason, we are creating a Steering Committee that will be in charge of organising, disseminating information and results, organising the reviewing process and define the main developments and the long term evolution of MT-ITS. 
This committee is open for all already contributing to MT-ITS or willing to contribute in the future, especially in hosting the event in the next editions.
By the end of July we will launch the committee and announce the MT-ITS 2021 location and organising institution.

Dear Participants of the MT-ITS 2019,

We are looking forward to host you soon in Kraków for MT-ITS Conference 2019.

Below we list practical information for participants:
  • The Venue is on the main Campus of Cracow University of Technology (ul. Warszawska 24) by the railway station and 10-minute walk to the Old Town and Main Market Square. The conference will take place in the “Działownia” Building,
  • We will include orientation map on the website before the conference with “Działownia” and all other conference places (Evening Events).
  • Registration will be opened day before the conference (4th June) 4-6 pm and on 5th from 8am.
  • We kindly ask all authors who have not submitted the final versions of the papers yet to send them together with the transfer of copyrights. Only properly sent papers will be published by IEEE (please follow the guidelines on ), if you are not willing to publish your paper, let us know.
  • Final version of the programme is available online, please make sure for the typos for which we apologize:
  • We made book of abstracts with full authors list and abstract (as it was submitted for the review): .
  • Make sure to upload and test your presentation before the session. Technical staff will be there to assist. The IT in the venue is quite complicated, so make sure the presentation is up and running before the session.
  • Presentations are scheduled for 15 minutes and 5 minutes for discussion. Please try to keep in time. To allow us switch between the sessions please try to meet the scheduled time of your slot.
  • Typically the last author is the session chair, responsible for keeping up to the schedule (15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes for discussion) and chairing the discussion. You may want contact with chair of your session before to make sure he introduces you well. If you do not feel like chairing the session, let us know.
  • Papers will be published in IEEE Xplore after conference, now you can see the book of abstracts (attached) to learn more about papers.
  • First day evening event is within a walking distance (Barbakan ) after the welcome reception we will invite you for the City Walk around the Old Town. Second day Gala Dinner will take place in Museum of Municipal Engineering (
  • If you need urgent assistance during conference please call us +48 501 694 896 (Rafał) +48 601 428 400 (Piotr) or via e-mail:
  • This list will on our website and updated, also during the conference in case of emergencies.
  • During the gala dinner we will vote on the host for 7th edition of MT-ITS in 2021. Candidates are invited to submit their candidatures via mail to before the conference.

getting there from Airport: Train is the most convenient (<20min, 10PLN) and it will take you to the main station 5 minute walk from the venue. Yet due to extensive railworks, some replacement buses may be introduced - in this case avoid the replacement bus (which is typically awful and awfully slow). At the arrivals you have real-time screen with PT departures. Public bus is not bad, but it takes significantly longer. Uber/Bolt work fine and shall reduce the taxi costs from 70PLN to 30PLN (1EUR = 4.3PLN).

getting around: conference is in walkable distance from most of touristic and hotel spots. Otherwise you can use very efficient Public Transport, without google transit we have way better and local PT planner that will help you to get around: . City bikes are spread around with not that hard registration on , nice opoortunity to get around, also some e-scooters are there for risk-seekers. Avoid pricey city-tours, we will take you on the night walk after the welcome reception on first day.

Please follow the updates on the conference website and on the FB and iN profiles.
See you in Cracow
