On behalf of the organizing committee of the International Choice Modelling Conference (ICMC) 2019, I would like to invite you to submit your recent research related to choice behaviour and attend the conference, which will be held in Kobe, Japan on Aug 19-21, 2019. Please visit the conference website (http://www.icmconference.org.uk/index.php/icmc/ICMC2019) for more details.
The International Choice Modelling Conference (ICMC) brings together leading researchers and practitioners from across the world and across different disciplines, including but not limited to transport studies, marketing, environmental economics, and health economics. The aim of the conference is to review recent advancements in knowledge and understanding in methodology as well as real world applications of choice models and stated choice and revealed preference survey techniques.
(1) Submission of Abstracts (800-1000 words): 31 January 2019
(2) Submission of Workshop proposals (800-1000 words): 31 January 2019
(3) Notification of Acceptance: 2 April 2019
(4) Submission of Full Papers (for publication): 17 July 2019
Authors are invited to submit papers either to regular sessions or special sessions, with full details below. We also welcome workshop proposals.
Please see our call for submissions (http://icmconference.org.uk/2019/Call%20For%20Papers%20-%20ICMC2019_final.pdf) for regular sessions. Researchtopics will include but are not limited tothe following:
(1) interdependent choices across life domains (e.g., health, education, employment, dating/marriage/divorce, migration, social network, time use,shopping, expenditure, residential behaviour, travel behaviour, leisure and tourism, and caregiving), and choice behaviour in each of the above life domains as well as well-being research
(2) choice behaviour over time (especially, the life course) and behavioural change: e.g., panel survey, life history survey, dynamic modelling, new theories about behavioural change
(3) choice research based on Big Data: data mining, data fusion of Big Data and questionnaire survey data
(4) choice behaviour of policy makers, organisation managers, community leaders, etc.
(5) group choice or collective choice: inter-personal choice, choice by employer and employee, social choice, voting behaviour, etc.
(6) choices related to new technologies (e.g., automation at offices and factories, autonomous vehicles, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet ofThings (IoT), virtual reality (VR), energy-saving products, and health-promotion products)
(7) choice behaviour related to the shared economy (e.g., Uber, Didi, Lyft, Ofo, Mobike, Airbnb)
(8) behavioural research on sustainable development: climate change, natural disasters, energy consumption, ecosystem preservation, sustainable lifestyles, ageing society, social exclusion
(9) risky and nuisance behaviour: e.g., evacuation during emergent events; risky driving (drunk drinking, angry driving, motorcycle gang, etc.); drug usage; quarrel, smoking, littering, and noisy behaviour in public space (e.g., bus, train, road, park, restaurant, residential area)
(10) gaming behaviour: gambling, social-network gaming, real escape game,etc.
(11) issues of developing countries and applications of choice behaviour research
(12) innovative and alternative applications of choice modelling, such asfor animal behaviour
(13) survey design related to the above research topics
We are also organising a number of special sessions, with full details available in the separate call for special session (http://icmconference.org.uk/2019/Special%20Sessions%20-%20ICMC2019_final.pdf) submissions. Everyspecial session will organize a special issue at an SCI/SSCI-indexed journal.
