THE CONFERENCE

Previous symposia were held in Leeds (UK, 2006), Leuven (Belgium, 2008), Takayama (Japan, in 2010), Martha's Vineyard (USA, 2012), Salerno (Italy, 2014), and Sydney, (Australia, 2018). The Symposium in 2018 will be held in Hong Kong.

This Symposium aims to foster excellence in dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) research and practice, and provide a forum for exchanging innovative ideas and challenges on DTA and related transportation science research problems. The theme of this Symposium is smart transportation.

Nowadays, in order to provide smooth traffic flow, high degree of safety and sustainable urban environment, smart transportation systems become popular. The systems include the integrated application of advanced management strategies and emerging technology. Such evolution can enhance the current transportation systems and come out positive in benefit-cost analyses. The systems are considered to be essential especially in addressing the challenges of complex matrix within smart cities. The DTA theory together with the latest technology, such as autonomous and electric vehicles, APPs, and GPS, are important ingredients towards the development of a smart city. Hong Kong is one of the cities moving towards this direction. This Symposium will attract international scholars to share their latest finding on DTA with local practitioners and academics to encourage the development of Hong Kong to be a leading smart city with more competitive advantages to adjacent cities, and eventually to make a positive impact on Hong Kong society.

Practitioners and academics are cordially invited to share their knowledge, experience and insights on the design, analytics, investigations, analysis, planning, operation, engineering, co-ordination and management of smart transport systems, taking into account the time-varying characteristics of travel demand and supply and the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The Symposium will last three full days (from Wednesday to Friday). The technical program may include plenary sessions, paper presentations, and interactive sessions.

TOPICS

The topics of the conference include both classical DTA topics and the dynamic aspects of transport systems and behavior in general, but not limited to:
