What is ITS?
ITS works as both an online and offline community where academic, business, and government researchers, industry practitioners, policy makers, and international bodies can consolidate, trade, and discuss specific research and information as they develop.
The main way we achieve that goal is by providing live forums, the biggest of which are our biennial international conferences, where we respond to specific needs as they develop. Beyond that, we also have a membership journal, newsletter, and this website.
