  • Call for Extended Abstracts for TRISTAN 2019

    We invite researchers to participate in the 10th Triennial Symposium on Transportation Analysis (TRISTAN 2019, or TRISTAN X). This symposium will be held 17-21 June 2019 on Hamilton Island, near the Great Barrier Reef, in Australia.

    TRISTAN X is an opportunity for you to showcase recent research and applications in transportation analysis and transportation science. Earlier TRISTAN symposiums have established a tradition of a symposium of high scientific quality, with lots of interaction during and outside the technical sessions, a good sense of community, and enriching and enjoyable social tours.

    We are expecting well over 100 academics, researchers and practitioners from around the world to convene to discuss mathematical models, methodologies and computational results, and to exchange ideas on advanced applications and technologies in transportation.

    Submission of Extended Abstracts for TRISTAN X is now open through EasyChair, at The deadline for submission of extended abstracts is 15 October 2018.

    More details on submission, including Word and LaTeX templates for extended abstracts,are available at the conference website,

    Attached is a flyer that you may pass on to others you think may be interested. We hope you will consider participating in TRISTAN X, and we look forward to welcoming you on Hamilton Island in June!

    With best regards,

  • Dear Friends,

    on behalf of the Board of the EWGT and of our community I'm pleased to convey heartfelt thanks to the participants to the EWGT2016 for attending and contributing to the Conference.

    We have also to warmly thank the members of the local Organizing Committee,

    • Domokos Esztergar-Kiss, International Project Coordinator of the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering
    • Tamas Matrai, Research Assistant of the Department of Transport Technology and Economy
    • Janos Toth, head of the Department of Transport Technology and Economy
    • Istvan Varga, Dean of the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering
    • the Undergraduate and Graduate students of the Department of Transport Technology and Economy and of the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering.

    All of us have appreciated very much their great and efficient efforts in realizing a successful event both from the scientific and social point of view. Thank you very much.

    I think we can claim without any doubts that the level of the works presented in these days has been very good; many subjects have been debated in a profitable way.

    We have to give our thanks to the authors and also to all the reviewers that have contributed for selecting a so good set of works.

    We have also to thank the keynote speakers László Sándor KERÉNYI, Jonas ELIASSON and Francesco VITI for their contribution to the Conference.

  • The EWGT newsletter is on. It collects news from the memmers and sperad them on the community. Every 2 months an e-mail will be sent to the members with updated information.

  • The Group was founded in July 1991 in Cetraro (Italy) during the 7th Euro Summer Institute on Urban Traffic Management. This name was changed during the EURO Conference in Glasgow in July 1994 to Transportation, in order to extend the topics addressed and to involve more people in participation.

    EWGT main targets concern providing a forum to share research information and experience, encouraging joint research and the development of both theoretical methods and applications, promoting cooperation among the many institutions and organisations which are leaders at national level in the field of transportation, traffic and logistics.

    Since the foundation of the Working Group, the Coordinator has been Prof. Maurizio Bielli, from National Research Council of Italy. Since September 2011 the Coordinator is Prof. Riccardo Rossi from Padua University, Italy.

    The 1st Meeting of the EWGT was held in Landshut, Germany, 1-3 October 1992, organized by Prof. Markos Papageorgiou. Next Meetings were held in different European cities, i.e. Paris, Barcelona, Newcastle upon Tyne, Goteborg, Helsinki, Budva, Rome, Bari, Poznan, Ischia, Padova, Poznan, Paris, Porto and Sevilla.

    Moreover, we usually give our sponsorship and cooperation to the most relevant events on transportation (such as Tristan and Odysseus). For example we organized Tristan II Conference held in Capri Island, Italy, in the 1994 year, probably the most exciting and great event people can remember.

    From the education point of view, we started our activity with the organization of the Summer School on Urban Traffic Management in 1991 in a wonderful seaside place in South Italy, where several young researchers presented their first contributions and several academic professors gave lessons and reviews on classical traffic and transport topics.

    We supported as well the Course on Advanced Methods for Planning and Management of Transportation Networks, held in Capri Island, Italy, in the 1999 year. Moreover, we organized a Short Course for young researchers during the EWGT Meeting in Bari, 2006.

    We have also to remark the organization by Prof. Markos Papageorgiou of the Short Courses on Dynamic traffic flow modelling and control, held in Chania, Greece, for many years.
