The symposium addresses researchers and practitioners concerned with the manifold aspects of rail transport demand management and interested in discussing scientific and application-oriented approaches. Relevant disciplines are transport planning, railway engineering, information technology, economics, marketing, psychology and many others. Politicians, managers and representatives of public authorities are invited to benefit from the symposium as a platform for knowledge-exchange and transfer.
During the two-day symposium, distinguished speakers will address selected interdisciplinary topics in key notes. Designated innovative research and practice approaches will be presented in 20-minute talks during parallel sessions. In addition, the best overall contributions to the symposium will be awarded as well as the best (post-)graduate student contribution. Furthermore, there is plenty of opportunity to network, especially at the symposium dinner which will be hosted at the end of the first symposium day.
