  • 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, Hilmi Berk Celikoglu, Abdullah Hilmi Lav, Mehmet Ali Silgu, Koray Gelmez, the undergraduate students of ITU Industrial Product Design Department and the Graduate students of ITU Civil Engineering Department. 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 Peter Wagner, Jaume Barcelo and Mohamed Abdel-Aty for their great contribution to the Conference.

    See you in Budapest next year…..

    Warms regards,

    Riccardo Rossi

    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.

  • 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.
