5th International Symposium on Travel Demand Management - 26 - 28 October 2010
Hosted by the Centre for Transport Research
University of Aberdeen
The fifth annual symposium on Travel Demand Management will take place at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, UK from 26 - 28 October 2010. The theme of the symposium is 'Sustainable mobility: the contribution of travel demand management'.
The call for abstracts is now closed and more details will be available shortly.
Travel Demand Management (TDM) measures offer some of the most promising transport policy interventions in relation to supporting more sustainable mobility, especially with reference to climate change, clean urban transport and congestion avoidance. Setting targets for reducing traffic or prospective traffic growth is a basic requirement to fulfill these goals and is a priority on the political agenda. Many activities of the European Commission and of national and local governments in Europe and all over the world support this development. However, the political decision-making and implementation processes associated with facilitating TDM measures can be difficult, especially when pricing measures are at drivers' expenses. The goal of the symposium is to share the latest high quality research results and developments in the different fiels of TDM.
The Symposium will be of particular interest to academics, transport researchers, representatives of local, regional and national authorities in the field of transport and the evironment, transport consultants and service providers.
