Cities have many faces, and they are a conglomerate of multiple entities compressed into a density that is highly challenging for the people who live and work there. High diversity in population, a multilingual environment, the gap between digital possibilities, and the reality of the travel experience are currently shaping our cities.

In this context, under the theme of navigation, solutions that make travel easy and enjoyable for everyone are essential components in defining a city. The conference in Mumbai is a call to understand individual perspectives on navigating and “using” the city, and how the quality of the mobility experience will be shaping city life in the future.

Conference organizers:


The IIID Mobility & Transport Forum 2020 is the 9th in a series of transport-related events since 2006 providing opportunities for face-to-face discussions on the latest mobility developments and trends and their expected impact.

The International Institute for Information Design (IIID) is a global network for people who work to make information clearer – for everyday life, business, education, and science. While rooted in graphic design, information design has much in common with user experience, plain language, and design research.

IDC School of Design will be hosting the IIID Mobility & Transport Forum 2020 at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB), Mumbai. The conference is organized in collaboration with IIID- International Institute of Information Design.

IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay was established in 1969 offering academic programs in the areas of Industrial Design, Communication Design, Interaction Design, Animation, and Mobility & Vehicle Design. Know more: www.idc.iitb.ac.in
