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 7th International Symposium on Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA): Smart Transportation
Hong Kong 6-8 June, 2018
Jointly organized by Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong (HKU), Institute of Transport Studies, The University of Hong Kong (HKU), Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), and The Hong Kong Society for Transportation Studies (HKSTS) < http://www.hksts.org/dta2018/ >
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 7th International Symposium on Dynamic Traffic Assignment in Hong Kong, 6-8 June, 2018. This Symposium aims to foster excellence in dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) research and practice, and provide a forum for exchanging innovative ideas and challenges on DTA and related transportation science research problems. The theme of this Symposium is smart transportation. Nowadays, in order to provide smooth traffic flow, high degree of safety and sustainable urban environment, smart transportation systems become popular. The systems include the integrated application of advanced management strategies and emerging technology. Such evolution can enhance the current transportation systems and come out positive in benefit-cost analyses. The systems are considered to be essential especially in addressing the challenges of complex matrix within smart cities. The DTA theory together with the latest technology, such as autonomous and electric vehicles, APPs, and GPS, are important ingredients towards the development of a smart city. Hong Kong is one of the cities moving towards this direction. This Symposium will attract international scholars to share their latest finding on DTA with local practitioners and academics to encourage the development of Hong Kong to be a leading smart city with more competitive advantages to adjacent cities, and eventually to make a positive impact on Hong Kong society. Practitioners and academics are cordially invited to share their knowledge, experience and insights on the design, analytics, investigations, analysis, planning, operation, engineering, co-ordination and management of smart transport systems, taking into account the time-varying characteristics of travel demand and supply and the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The Symposium will last three full days (from Wednesday to Friday).
The technical program may include plenary sessions, paper presentations, and interactive sessions.
For details, please visit the conference website at: http://www.hksts.org/dta2018/

Yours sincerely, Conference Organizing Committee

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.
