  • Dear members, dear friends, 

    I warmly recommend you to visit the EWGT2019 website and read the call for paper of our friends from Barcelona. I'm sure it will be as usual and even more an opportunity to debate in a fruitful way on topics of our common interest.

    A warm greeting,




    Dear Colleagues,

    You are kindly invited to submit an Extended Abstract of up to 3 pages long to the 22nd edition of the Euro Working Group of Transportation Meeting to be held in Barcelona, 18th-20th September 2019. 

    Submission of Extended Abstracts will close by December 15th. Notification of acceptance of Extended Abstracts is intended by February 1st. For more details visit the official web page of the Conference:

    Extended Abstracts (in .pdf format) should be sent using the EasyChair system following this link:

    which can be used also for creating an account in EasyChair, if necessary. A template, attached to this message, for your Extended Abstracts is provided also in the web page of the Conference,

    Please forward this call to your colleagues and contacts who might be interested. We look forward to welcome you in Barcelona for this event!


    Best Regards,

    See you in Dublin.....

  • Call for Extended Abstracts for TRISTAN 2019

    We invite researchers to participate in the 10th Triennial Symposium on Transportation Analysis (TRISTAN 2019, or TRISTAN X). This symposium will be held 17-21 June 2019 on Hamilton Island, near the Great Barrier Reef, in Australia.

    TRISTAN X is an opportunity for you to showcase recent research and applications in transportation analysis and transportation science. Earlier TRISTAN symposiums have established a tradition of a symposium of high scientific quality, with lots of interaction during and outside the technical sessions, a good sense of community, and enriching and enjoyable social tours.

    We are expecting well over 100 academics, researchers and practitioners from around the world to convene to discuss mathematical models, methodologies and computational results, and to exchange ideas on advanced applications and technologies in transportation.

    Submission of Extended Abstracts for TRISTAN X is now open through EasyChair, at The deadline for submission of extended abstracts is 15 October 2018.

    More details on submission, including Word and LaTeX templates for extended abstracts,are available at the conference website,

    Attached is a flyer that you may pass on to others you think may be interested. We hope you will consider participating in TRISTAN X, and we look forward to welcoming you on Hamilton Island in June!

    With best regards,

  • Call for papers

    Handbook of Operations Research and Management Science in Higher Education

    Editor: Zilla Sinuany-Stern
    Springer’s International Series in Operations Research and Management Science 

    The Handbook will cover applications of Operations Research (OR) and Management Science (MS) in the management of Higher Education (HE) at all levels: departmental, institutional, and national. We welcome applications and literature reviews of OR/MS in HE in areas such as: strategy, budgeting, resource allocation, facility planning, faculty planning, performance, scheduling, efficiency, quality assurance, international comparisons, and ranking. All OR/MS methodologies applied to the management of HE are acceptable, such as: optimization, decision analysis, forecasting, simulation, and game theory. Original papers with review of the relevant literature and applications are welcome. The papers will be refereed.Potential contributors are welcome to contact Zilla Sinuany-Stern via e-mail to: ASAP.

  • The EWGT newsletter is on. It collects news from the memmers and sperad them on the community. Every 2 months an e-mail will be sent to the members with updated information.

    If you have some information you want to spread, please send an e-mail to the .

  • 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.
