Topic Area F: Transport, Land Use and Sustainability

Topic Area F is concerned with land use and environmental issues due to the interaction with transport and vice versa. It includes integrated land use and transport policy and planning; modelling of land use, transport and environmental interactions with decision support systems; community liveability, local environmental impacts, and the use of non-motorized modes of travel in the developed world; and sustainability and environmental ethics.

 

SIG F1 – Transport and Spatial Development

Upcoming Events

Online workshop to explore the impact of COVID-19 on the interaction of transport and spatial development

Thursday 25th February 2021 from 2pm (GMT)

The new corona virus pandemic has frozen human activities and urges to rethink urban systems. In most countries, the pandemic is not under control yet. It remains uncertain how long it will take to overcome the restrictions, and how life after the pandemic might differ from life before the pandemic.

Given these uncertainties, we will hold a free workshop to stimulate the discussion and research on the interaction of transport and spatial development during and after the pandemic.

We invite short presentations (5-10 minutes) in particular of SIG F01 members and friends to present research and discuss the future directions of urban transport research. If you wish to present, please use the link below to express your interest. If you would like to attend without presenting, please also use the link below to register for this event.
