We want to call the attention to a new call for papers in *Transportation*
on improving policy making for emerging sharing, automation and
*electrification* transportation solutions, with a submission deadline of
December 1st, 2017.

SI: Transportation System Analysis for Better Policy-Making

~~~~~*Motivation*

The rise of shared mobility, manifested by services such as car-sharing,
ridesourcing, bike-sharing and crowdsourcing delivery, is fundamentally
changing the landscape of travel and transport. As the vehicle automation
and connectivity technology matures, these shared mobility services could
eventually evolve into a powerful alternative to the current model of car
ownership. Moreover, the collective ownership, being more rational and
having a greater bargaining power for infrastructure improvement, may favor
electricity as the primary fuel due to much lower operating and
environmental costs. These three trends, namely sharing, automation and
electrification, have occupied much of the ongoing research efforts in the
field of transportation in recent years. As researchers begin to engineer
the next generation of analytical tools tailored to these emerging
conditions, a daunting challenge is how to apply these tools to properly
inform public policies pertinent to design, operations and management of
future transportation systems. Because policies typically aim to achieve
certain societal goals by influencing human behaviors, policy making
processes must anticipate complex policy-human interaction and take their
effects into account. It is this particular challenge that the present
Special Issue is focused on.

Specifically, submissions that broadly fit the following profile are most
welcome:

   1.

   Addressing a system application related to one (or more) of the
   following themes: sharing, automation and electrification;
   2.

   Employing a quantitative system analysis tool. Network models is
   probably the most obvious example, although other system analysis tools may
   be accepted as the guest-editors see fit; and
   3.

   Considering policy-behavior interactions in the tool and/or exploring
   policy implications in the analysis.
