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.
Celebrating a ‘renaissance’ economist
James Alleman (University of Colorado, Boulder), Paul Rappoport (Temple University, Philadelphia) and Mohsen Hamoudia (Orange, Paris) have edited a Festschrift in honor of Gary Madden.
Professor Gary Madden was a “renaissance” economist. He worked in the areas of applied microeconomics, econometrics, forecasting and policy research, primary in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. Gary’s primary research area concerned the economic modelling of digital networks.

Dear ITS Colleagues:
(ITS Chair’s Opening Remarks from the ITS Webinar on Tracking & Tracing Apps, September 2020)
Hello and Welcome!
Thank you for being with us today. Thank you for sharing your presence, your time and your ideas.
A big thank you, in particular, to those joining us from challenging time zones:
Our friends on the West coast of North America who are in their pyjamas because it is 5 am local; and our friends throughout East Asia who may also be in their pyjamas, as well, because it is 9 pm local, or later.
