TDM Symposium – 19th-21st June 2019, Edinburgh
Travel demand management (TDM) tools and techniques have progressed over the last few decades to include new policies, technologies, vehicle and fuel types. Other soft measures have also been introduced such as raising awareness and education policies. The aim of TDM is to improve the efficiency of the transportation system and promote further use of more efficient and smarter modes of transportation in the sense to achieve a sustainable transport system. The Public transportation system and ITS are at the heart of that aim. The 9th International (TDM) symposium will be organised by Edinburgh Napier University, and will take place from 19-21 June 2019, at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh. The TDM symposium provides three days of intellectual exchange of your research findings with leading researchers and professionals in the field. It will be a platform for best practice sharing and networking with these researchers.
The symposium invites contributions on all areas of Travel Demand Management topics including but not exclusive to:
New challenges in public transportation systems New concepts, strategies and benchmarking for public transport and ITS policies Travel demand analysis and forecasting Transit planning and operation Public awareness and impacts Assessing impacts of TDM policies and strategies assessment of TDM tools and policies Travel demand, land use, and urban development Public transportation and information provision TDM and parking management Shared use and ownership ITS mobility Behavioral aspects in TDM Activity-based travel demand modeling Economic and environmental implications of TDM TDM and automated vehicle systems Contribution of TDM measures to climate goals.
The symposium promises to bring together the national and international TDM researchers to brainstorm ideas and research findings on TDM theoretical and practical investigations.
