ATRF 2019 Call for Papers
The ATRF bring together transport researchers, policymakers, advisors and practitioners from a range of disciplines to share and build upon the latest research and thinking in the transport sector. This year the Call for Papers invites both Scientific Research Papers and Contemporary Research and Professional Practice submissions that are focused as follows:
- The ‘Scientific Research’ Paper stream is primarily for academics and professional researchers who seek to have their work fully peer reviewed. Multiple reviewers assess these papers based on a range of criteria commonly applied to scientific research, particularly the extent to which the paper advances knowledge in the field. Authors need to submit a full paper for consideration in this stream.
- The ‘Contemporary Research & Practice’ stream is designed primarily for researchers and practitioners from universities, government and the private sector who do not seek full scientific peer review on a complete paper. Submissions in this stream are based on an extended abstract and will be reviewed from the perspective of their contribution to contemporary research and/or professional practice rather than their deep scientific contribution. Submissions are expected to provide an insightful description of contemporary research or rigorous professional work associated with the administration, planning, policy, design or operation of the transport system. They are also expected to have relevance beyond the jurisdiction or organisation where the work was undertaken and authors are encouraged to consider the broader implications of their work for research and professional practice. Submissions must be free from obvious advertising or self-promotion. Authors need to submit an extended abstract, of around 1500 words, but not a full paper, for consideration in this stream.
Authors should note that the deadline for submissions is 7 June 2019 regardless of whether you are submitting to the Scientific Research Paper or to the Contemporary Research and Professional Practice Streams. Authors submitting to either stream will need to format their submission using the relevant template that will be made available on the conference web site in February 2019.
The ATRF conference covers a wide range of topics relevant to transport, and authors are invited to submit papers covering areas such as:
- Freight and logistics
- Traffic modelling, forecasting and simulation
- Transport analysis and big data
- Active transport (cycling, walking, etc.)
- Public transport
- Transport and land use / urban design
- Planning and policy
- Transport economics, impacts and environment
- Aviation / Maritime
- ITS connected and autonomous vehicles
- Transport funding and pricing
- Travel behaviour and demand management
- Traffic engineering and management
We look forward to seeing you in September in Canberra
