The conference at a glance


Panta Rhei – the World in Constant Motion

12-14 SEPTEMBER 2017


Mobility is a multifaceted topic with a complex past development. Ideological quarrels, almost religious wars have been fought during the past decades when talking about mobility issues. But how can we use today’s knowledge and techniques to shape the forward-looking mobility of tomorrow? Actually, how can mobility be defined? REAL CORP 2017 deals with everything that moves im time and space. These theme fields will be covered during the conference:

  • Mobility – intermodal, multimodal, on-demand – state of the art and future perspectives
  • Megastructures and global transport hubs vs. bikeable and walkable environments – is this one world?
  • Traffic and transport in smart cities and regions
  • E-Mobility & beyond
  • Mobility of an ageing population: How to deal with special mobility needs of impaired people
  • Moving people – migration into cities, international migration, seasonal migration, rediscovery of the villages, ... – from local to global perspectives
  • Data analysis, surveillance and monitoring from above: satellites, planes, drones
  • Changing cities, changing landscapes – slow or fast changes, stable or fragile structures
  • Real time mobility data and applications
  • New and upcoming transport technologies
  • Spatial simulation, modelling and decision support
  • Individual mental and physical mobility: Accessibility in ICT and Planning
  • GIS and Geoinformation: What do we expect from New Observation Technologies

It would be a great honour to be able to welcome you to REAL CORP 2017 in September in Vienna. All information on REAL CORP 2017 can be found at as usual.
