EURO 2018 - Public Transportation - Call for Sessions
Call for Sessions within the Stream
===== PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION =====
the 29th European Conference on Operational Research
July 8-11, 2018 in Valencia, Spain
Following the success of the Public Transport stream on previous EURO and IFORS
conferences, EURO 2018 will again offer a stream "Optimization for Public Transport"
organized by Marie Schmidt and Anita Sch?bel.
We are now looking for session organizers and for papers fitting in this stream!
Would you be interested to organize a session of 4 talks on some particular
topic within this stream?
This task involves choosing the specific topic, contacting speakers and handling their
submission in the online system of the conference, to which you will then get access.
Usually, but not necessarily, the session organizer is also session speaker and/or chair.
If you are interested, please let us know.
In case you plan to present a paper within the stream, but do not want to organize
a full session, please let us know as well. We are glad to send you a session code
such that you may submit your paper in an invited session.
We are looking forward to a successful Public Transportation stream at EURO 2018
and to meeting you in Valencia!

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.
