As in previous editions, the CIT 2021 wants to support the work of young researchers. Therefore, the organization of special sessions is expected, in collaboration with those responsible for formation of the Forum of Transport Engineering (FIT), which will facilitate the exchange of ideas and enhance the scientific formation.

To participate in these special sessions for young researchers, the first author of the paper must be under 35 years and not have finished him/her PhD or have done it in a period not exceeding 2 years before the dates of the Conference. Also, there maximum number of coauthors must be 3 people to be considered for these Awards. Each author can only propose one paper for these awards (the one where he/she is the first author), while this paper is candidate for the three awards. The papers will be judged by a tribunal of professors of the FIT, which will be awarded the following awards:

  • FIT Award endowed with diploma and 1000€ (gross amount). Terms and conditions
  • PTV Group Award for the best 2 papers on Modelling and Simulation of Transportation Systems and Mobility, each endowed with diploma and 1000€ (gross amount). Terms and conditions
  • Aimsun Award endowed with diploma and 1000€ (gross amount). Terms and conditions


  • All the papers must be submitted in the stablished format to be considered.
