"Digital Innovations for the Public and Mobility Services" is the motto of the 19 th I4CS, to be held from June 24 till 26, 2019 in Wolfsburg/Germany, dedicated to challenging aspects around modern community systems. Wolfsburg is heart and headquarter of the Volkswagen Group. The city is indisputably the industrial location number one in Lower Saxony and will be an excellent conference host. And do not forget to visit “Automobile City”, Volkswagen’s unique theme and adventure park, which is right next to the factory!
