14th World Conference on Transport Research

15 July 2016 @ 12:00 am

The World Conference on Transport Research has been held every three years since 1977. The 14th World Conference will be held 10-15 July 2016 in Shanghai, China at Tongji University, which will host the Conference at its main campus. The WCTRS Young Researchers’ Conference will take place on 10 July 2016.

The aims of the conference are to offer a unique opportunity to bring together experts in all aspects of transport research, from all parts of the world and to stimulate the exchange of ideas in the broad field of transport research.

Topics include:

  • Transport Modes – General
  • Freight Transport and Logistics
  • Traffic Management, Operations and Control
  • Activity and Transport Demand
  • Transport Economics and Finance
  • Transport, Land-use and Sustainability
  • Transport Planning and Policy
  • Transport in Developing and Emerging Countries

A new system will enable outstanding papers to be published in an arranged partner journal of each SIG (Special Interest Group) where the paper will be presented, providing an excellent gateway for conference participants to publish their papers efficiently. All successfully reviewed papers will be published in a Transportation Research Procedia volume. The best papers will be included in special issues of the two WCTRS official journals and in 25 partner journals. The deadline for submitting a full paper for review has now passed. Full papers for the non-review track will be accepted until 24 March 2016.

Special Interest Groups provide opportunities for the SIG members to communicate with local practitioners in the field of transport, regional/city development and environment, and provide professional knowledge to them in different regions and cities of the world.
