EURO Summer and Winter Institutes (ESWI) are an instrument EURO has established for the encouragement of good scientific and social relationships between promising early stage OR scientists in Europe.
The EURO Winter Institute on “Methods and Models in Transportation Problems” will take place in Bressanone, Italy, from the 14th to the 23rd of February 2017. The event will be hosted by University of Padova and is organized by Euro Working Group on Transportation, under the patronage and sponsorship of the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO). It aims at gathering early stage researchers will establish a network of outstanding people who hopefully will continue to work together in the future.
The course will be composed by morning lectures and afternoon workshops and tutorials.
Applicants must have a single-authored or co-authored paper in the selected field, which has not yet been published, nor accepted for publication.
Joint cultural and outdoors activities are also planned.
To apply to the EWI have to submit their curriculum vitae, their paper together with a motivation statement to the Scientific Committee of the EWI.
The official language is English.

Dear EWGT Members,
a number of potential attendees have contacted EWGT Coordinator, Members of the Scientific Board and EWGT2016 Organizing Committee, asking for advice about the EWGT position on the risk related to the participation to the next meeting in Istanbul (because the well-know situation), or to inform them about their decision of cancelling their attendance.
After a wide discussion the EWGT Scientific Board together with the Coordinator have decided to ask to the Chair of the conference to consider some ways out in order to make easier for the potential attendees to take their final decision about participation.
These ways out were oriented to move and/or shift the conference.
In the light of the progress of the Conference organization the Chairman has proposed to hold the conference in September in Istanbul as scheduled and leave authors to decide to give up attending the conference; at once, if one is registered, his/her accepted paper will be published in TR- PRO.
Therefore, EWGT Coordinator and the Scientific Board leave totally free the potential attendees to decide relaxing (notwhitstanding the rules of our Meetings and in the way stated above) the constrains on papers publication.
It will be care of the Organizing Committee keep attendees updated about the situation in Istanbul in the next future.
EWGT Scientific Board
EWGT2016 Conference Chairman

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.
