Extended abstracts and full paperslogoEC


Deadline for extended abstracts, now 16th June 2017

We invite you to submit an extended abstract (maximum 4 pages) with an original contribution related to transport network reliability. The scope of disciplines covered by the symposium is wide, so technical, operational, economic, policy, or inter-disciplinary contributions, are welcome.

Authors of accepted extended abstracts are also invited to submit a full paper (this is optional). Full papers will not be reviewed for the conference, but the local organising committee will arrange agreements with selected journals for special issues. Guest editors will invite full papers to be submitted to these journals, which will be reviewed under the normal process.

Please download the Extended Abstract Template for writing your extended abstract. If you are using LaTeX, we would like to ask you to match this template as closely as possible. All accepted extended abstracts will be included in a printed book.

Submissions can be uploaded using the website via, which will also be used for reviews.

Extended abstracts will be printed in an Abstracts Book and full papers will be included on a USB stick. Both will be handed out to delegates during registration at the conference.

If all else fails, just email your extended abstract to
