|Title||9th International Symposium on Travel Demand Management|
|Dates||19 - 21 June 2019|
|Location||Hilton Grosvenor Hotel, Edinburgh, UK|
|Organised by||Edinburgh Napier University|
Travel demand management (TDM) tools and techniques have progressed over the last few decades to include new policies, technologies, vehicle and fuel types. Other soft measures have also been introduced such as raising awareness and education policies.
The aim of TDM is to improve the efficiency of the transportation system and promote further use of more efficient and smarter modes of transportation. The Public transportation system and ITS are at the heart of that aim. The 9th International (TDM) symposium will be organised by Edinburgh Napier University and will take place from 19-21 June 2019, at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh.
The TDM symposium provides three days of intellectual exchange of your research findings with leading researchers and professionals in the field. It will be a platform for best practice sharing and networking with these researchers.
The symposium invites contributions on all areas of Travel Demand Management topics including but not exclusive to:
- New challenges in public transportation systems
- New concepts, strategies and benchmarking for public transport and ITS policies
- Travel demand analysis and forecasting
- Transit planning and operation
- Public awareness and impacts
- Assessing impacts of TDM policies and strategies
- Assessment of TDM tools and policies
- Travel demand, land use, and urban development
- Public transportation and information provision
- TDM and parking management
- Shared use and ownership
- ITS mobility
- Behavioural aspects in TDM
- Activity-based travel demand modelling
- Economic and environmental implications of TDM
The symposium promises to bring together the national and international TDM researchers to brainstorm ideas and research findings on TDM theoretical and practical investigations.
The presented papers can be reviewed for inclusion on a Special Issue in Transportation Research Part A “Travel demand management in smart cities“ on the basis of the reviewers’ comments received on the presented papers at the Symposium as well as the normal TRA peers’ review process.
Authors will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their presented papers at the symposium for further review. There will be an informal lunch time session during the symposium to discuss possible contributions to the SI.
