  • 14th International Conference on Advanced Systems in Public Transport

    CASPT 2018 and TRANSIT DATA 2018 23-25 July 2018 Brisbane, Australia

    We invite researchers and practitioners to participate in a combined event: the 14th International Conference on Advanced Systems in Public Transport (CASPT), being held in conjunction with the 4th International Workshop on Research and Applications on the Use of Passive Data from Public Transport (TRANSIT DATA). The combined event will be held on 23-25 July 2018 in Brisbane, Australia.

    CASPT is an opportunity for you to showcase recent research and applications in advanced systems in public transport. The conference, dating back to 1980, was most recently held in Rotterdam in 2015 and is now coming to Australia. The focus of the conference is on methods for public transport service and operations planning, including the following topics: Network and route planning Vehicle and crew scheduling and rostering Operations planning Vehicle monitoring and management Practical experience with scheduling and transport planning methods

    TRANSITDATA highlights the use of passive data sources from public transport: automated fare collection, vehicle location (GPS), passenger counting, and related systems. The series brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss methods to analyse these data and to develop innovative applications to improve public transport services. Topics include: Tools for data management and analysis Multi-modal operations and service planning Operations monitoring and control Demand analysis Customer experience and traveller behaviour at the disaggregate level

    >> Abstract and paper submission will be managed through Easychair. We particularly invite abstracts and papers that cross disciplines, covering both service planning and operations supply models, as well as creative uses of existing automated data sources. We welcome contributions in methods, applications and case studies.

    >> Important Dates: Extended Abstract Submission: 15 December 2017 (up to 1000 words) Notification on Abstracts: 31 January 2018 Full Paper Submission: 15 May 2018 Early Bird Registration: 15 May 2018 Discounted registration will be offered for students. More details on registration will be posted to the conference website (www.caspt.org).

    The Local Organizing Committee

  • 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.

    See you next year in Braunschweig …..

    Warms regards,

    Riccardo Rossi

  • 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.
