Call for Submissions

The development of connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology and continued innovations in alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) offer potentially dramatic changes for the future of transportation, as cities and regions continue to address a host of long-term environmental, social, and economic issues inherent in the present-day transportation sector. Of long-term importance as these technologies mature is a need to understand the likely feedbacks that will impact the form of cities and regions, their impact on the sustainability of transportation, and the arrangement of residences and employment. Geographers are uniquely situated to how people current use and consider these emerging transportation technologies, and the implications of future and more widespread adoption.

This session welcomes all geographers that are considering the role of advanced vehicle technologies in the transportation sector. We particularly welcome those interested in their diffusion into urban areas, though studies in all areas and all spatial scales will be considered. A sample of topics that could contribute to this session include (but are not limited to):

• Charging/driving/purchasing/refueling behavior
• Confluence of AFVs and CAVs
• Education, experience, knowledge, and perception studies
• Environmental impacts, benefits, well-to-wheel analyses
• Equity impacts, issues, and vulnerability analyses
• Facility location and network design
• Impacts on electricity grid
• Impacts on land use and development
• Interaction with public transportation
• Interaction with bicycling and walking
• Inter-urban and intra-urban comparisons
• Policies and incentives
• Smart cities and connected mobility
• Technology choice and tradeoffs
• Time-space and activity-travel based analyses
• Transition trajectories and economics

We welcome submissions from geographers addressing this priority research area using a variety of methods. If there is enough response, we would be delighted to host multiple sessions.

If interested in participating in these sessions, please contact and send your abstract PIN number to Scott Kelley (scottkelley@unr.edu) and Bradley Lane (bwlane@ku.edu) by Thursday, October 25th, 2018.
