Scientists and other professionals working in the field of transportation and traffic are invited to submit papers for the 20th International Symposium on Transportation & Traffic Theory, to be held in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, from July 17 to July 19, 2013.
35 Papers will be selected for podium presentation and publications in the conference proceedings.

As in past symposia, paper review will be a two-stage process. An extended abstract (around 1000 words) can be submitted to the organizers between August 15, 2011 and January 15, 2012 for the first-round review. Since ISTTT’s principal criterium is the scientific contribution of the work, we emphasize that the extended abstracts need to provide sufficient (theoretical, mathematical or empirical) evidence to allow the reviewers to assess this contribution. Please note that the official language for the ISTTT is (UK) English.

Accepted papers will be published both in the symposium book (Elsevier Procedia series) and in Special Issues of the Transportation Research series. Given the high standards of the ISTTT series, only 36 papers will be selected for podium presentation and publications in both the conference proceedings and the Transportation Research series. In addition, a maximum of 24 papers will be selected for a poster presentation. These papers will be published in a separate book (Elsevier Procedia series).

Sample topics welcomed by the symposium include but are not limited to:

  • Traffic flow theories and their implications
  • Traffic management and control
  • Dynamics of transport phenomena, especially when coupled with observations
  • Intelligent transport systems
  • Travel behavior processes and demand modeling
  • Vehicular interactions in mixed-mode traffic
  • Congestion pricing and other policies
  • Scheduled modes (public transport, air networks): system planning, service design and operations
  • Pedestrian and crowd modeling
  • Transport safety
  • Network modeling and dynamics
  • Routing and scheduling in transportation
  • Freight transport modeling, logistics and supply chains
  • Terminal design and operation
  • Transportation policy
