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).
