THE CONFERENCE

Established in February 1996, the Hong Kong Society for Transportation Studies (HKSTS) aims to foster excellence in transportation research and practice, stimulate professional interchange in transportation, and provide a forum for exchanging ideas on transportation developments.

Hong Kong is a major transportation and logistics hub of the Asia-Pacific region. With the increasing integration of the economies of the Pearl River Delta and Southeast Asia, and increasing global market competition, advanced methods in operations research, management science, economics and statistics are needed for modelling the dynamics of complex large-scale multimodal transportation systems. Practitioners and academics are cordially invited to share their knowledge, experience and insights on the design, analysis, planning, operation, engineering, co-ordination and management of transportation systems and their impacts. The technical program may include plenary sessions, paper presentations and interactive sessions.

SUBMISSION OF PAPER

Abstracts (300-500 words) must be received no later than 15 April 2013.
