Call For Papers

This international conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has successfully been reconvened annually for the last seventeen years. It has always attracted a wide international spread of delegates and is well established as the premier annual event of its type. It first started in Southampton in 1995; continuing in Barcelona (1996); Acquasparta, Italy (1997); Lisbon (1998); Rhodes (1999); Cambridge, UK (2000); Lemnos, Greece (2001); Seville (2002); Crete (2003); Dresden (2004); the Algarve (2005); WIT campus in the New Forest (2006); Coimbra (2007); Malta (2008); Bologna (2009); Cyprus (2010) and Pisa (2011).

The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems in general and the need for a healthier environment has led to an increased level of research around the world. This is reflected in the proceedings of this well-established meeting which demonstrates the steady growth of research into urban transport systems. The variety of topics covered by the conference are of primary importance for analysing the complex interactions of the urban transport environment and for establishing action strategies for transport and traffic problems.

Transportation in cities, with its related environmental and social concerns, is a topic of the utmost importance for urban authorities and central governments around the world. Urban transport systems require considerable studies to safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety. They produce significant environmental impacts and can enhance or degrade the quality of life in urban centres. The emphasis is to seek transportation systems that minimize any ecological and environmental impact, are sustainable and help to improve the socioeconomic fabric of the city. Another area of concern addressed by the conference is that of public safety and security, seeking ways to protect passengers while retaining the efficiency of systems.

Conference topics include;

- Transport strategies
- Transport modelling and simulation
- Transport safety and security
- Public transport systems
- Land use and transport integration
- Environmental impact
- Rail transport strategies
- Infrastructure
- Transport technologies
- Intelligent transport systems
- Urban transport management
- Environmentally friendly transport modes
- Inter-modal transport systems
