10th EURO Working Group Transportation Meeting

10th EWGT Meeting is focused on presentation of the advanced methods and computer-based tools applied in transportation. The objective of the conference is to provide the audience with the state-of-the art in analysis, monitoring, forecasting and decision aiding in transportation, including road, railway, air and water, both passenger and freight. Different mathematical algorithms, IT tools and software technologies is going to be presented during the conference. Specialists/experts in OR, decision aiding and transportation are invited to discuss and analyze different decision transportation problems.

The major thematic streams of the conference are as follows:

Transportation planning and policy

  • optimal policy instruments (e.g. pricing, environmental protection, subsidies etc.)
  • rational and sustainable transport development (e.g. analysis of transport strategies and development scenarios)
  • evaluation of transportation projects and activities - assessment and appraisal methods
  • transportation policy planning within 6 FP
  • transport and spatial development

Transportation system assessment

  • performance measurement
  • valuation of costs/benefits
  • quality standards and quality evaluation methods in transportation
  • case studies
