General Guidelines

  • Submit all online proposals in English.
  • Proposals must be original and address technology issues or various aspects of ITS like institutional, business, societal, or economic. 
  • All submissions must include the name, organisation, country and email address of the paper author/ SIS & SFS organiser.  
  • SIS & SFS proposals must also include these details for the moderator, and must include at least three confirmed speakers. 
  • All Paper submissions must be in the template on the submission portal. 
  • All session speakers, moderators and paper presenters must register by the speaker/moderator deadline and pay the appropriate Congress fee. 
  • Sessions without registered speakers by the deadline may lose slots to others. 
  • Acceptance isn’t linked to sponsorship, which is negotiated separately. 


  • Session organisers will receive IPC decisions via email by the stated deadline.
    • Certain organisers might be requested to merge sessions to prevent repetition.
    • Speaker confirmations will also be requested. 
  • Conditionally accepted papers must address reviewers’ feedback to gain full acceptance. 
  • Authors of fully accepted papers can make updates closer to the Congress date.

For All Submissions

  • Each completed submission will receive an auto-generated acknowledgment email with the ID number and contact details of the submitter. This confirmation of receipt does not signify acceptance. 
  • Please note: Committing to more than two Specialist Sessions as a speaker or a moderator may result in scheduling conflicts that organisers can’t resolve.
  • While planning your travel, remember that specialist sessions will be scheduled between 09:00 AM on Monday, September 16, and 03:00 PM on Friday, September 20. Exact dates/times will be sent in early May 2024. 
  • The organisers will thoughtfully arrange session distribution, providing maximum options for delegates, moderators, and speakers. Due to a final program involving over 500 speakers and moderators, changing session slots is highly unlikely.
  • Detailed submission guidelines are available on the submission portal. 


The Government of Dubai requires event organisers to obtain a speaker permit for all presenters (speakers and moderators) at the 2024 ITS World Congress 60 days prior to the event. The submission deadline for the Technical Programme is therefore unlikely to be extended.

Submit your contributions by 15 December!

Submission Portal Open

We want to ensure that everyone who wishes to be part of this collective knowledge-sharing experience has the chance to contribute. Therefore, the submissions portal will remain open until 15 January 2024. Submit your contributions now!
