Where do you think you’re going…?

  • 25th June 2009 Newcastle upon Tyne

10:00am – 6pm

Newcastle University and Imperial College would like to invite you to participate in a different sort of Workshop to help shape future research into sustainable intelligent transport.
Person using Handheld Sat Nav Electric Vehicle being Re-charged Congestion Charging Camera

It will be sparky; it will be challenging; it will think the unthinkable – and it will be FREE with refreshments provided.
You’ll not want to miss it, will you?

- Will the internet and technology influence how we travel? Whether we travel at all?
- Can technology help mobility?
- How useful is “user-generated content”?
- How far can mobile internet and Web2.0 get you? – literally
- Where is transport research going?
- Did Beethoven have a food processor?

Come and listen to new thoughts on old problems; share with us what you think matters; show us what you’re up to; join in when people ask the questions they’ve always wanted to pose on transport and the internet; suggest the areas you think need investigation.

Proceedings will be live blogged and tweeted from the event; together with remote contributions. These will be forwarded to EPSRC as the outcome of the workshop and the SIMM final report.

If you’d like details about attending, exhibiting, making a short presentation or demonstrating a product or technology, or following the workshop online please contact Hannah Bryan: hannah.bryan@newcastle.ac.uk at Newcastle University ( 0191 222 6420 ).
