International Conference “Smart Management of Infrastructures”

The conference focused on some recent urgent issues to modernize the Vietnamese transport sector, especially urban transport with four major themes: Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS); Geographic Information System (GIS) and Smart City; Monitoring. Participating in the conference were 18 scientists from Fengchia University of Taiwan, and many scientists, administrators and technical staff from domestic agencies such as Ministry of Transport; FPT Corporation; Quang Ninh Department of Transport; Institute of Transport Science and Technology; Institute of Natural Disasters and Environment; Hanoi Socio-Economic Research Institute; Institute of Environmental Resources - Vietnam National University, Hanoi; Vietnam Bridge and Road Association; University of Transport Technology; Institute of Electronics, Information technology and Automation; Vietnam Expressway Corporation; Hanoi Transportation Company; Institute of Transport Technology (TEDI); Hanel Joint Stock Company; An Phu Company ... and UTC’s scientists.

The conference was divided into three sections: Session on Intelligent Transport System; Session on Intelligent Geographic Information Systems; Session on Monitoring. There are 31 scientific articles contributing to the conference, including 17 scientific articles by foreign scientists. Many articles analyzed deeply, addressing the advanced scientific issues being applied in developed countries today and the applicability in Vietnam. Participants in the conference wished to have more time to explore and discuss the scientific issues being addressed to improve the transport system in Vietnam, especially the urban transport system. The context of the growing trend of the industrial revolution 4.0 with the development of human knowledge and digital technology is a favorable condition as well as a big challenge for scientists to study the application of new technology to improve social services and people's lives better.

As a major university in the transport sector, the University of Transport and Communications has been effectively promoting good traditional relations with international partners in all areas of educating technical staff, studying the application and transferring advanced technologies for practical application in order to step-by-step modernize Vietnam transport sector.
