These are just a few of the highlighted areas in which we are interested. In addition to these themes, papers that fit within Programme Committees’ areas of interest are also very welcome. We are also pleased to announce that a new Programme Committee on Data is planned to cater for the growth and diversity of papers expected in this broad subject.

In addition, we would like to hear from anyone who is interested in utilising ETC 2018 as a platform to hold their final project dissemination event in a parallel co-located stream. Your opportunity to present at the most established transport conference in Europe!

You are invited to submit an abstract based on one of the above themes or on one of those suggested by the Programme Committees.

The deadline for abstract submission is 06 February 2018.

Submissions may be made via the Association’s website. You will need to register once as an author and then you can submit as many abstracts as you wish. Authors can request a peer review of their papers and a selection of reviewed papers is published on line or in special issues of journals.

The Association for European Transport is responsible for the organisation of the Conference, which has been held annually since 1973. It is the Association’s aim to promote and maintain a pan-European understanding of transport issues along with its members who form a network of transport professionals across Europe.
