Contributions and publication

Impulse contributions

Participants are offered the opportunity to contribute to the breakout sessions with impulse presentations. Selected contributions will also be part of the publication on the workshop in a special issue of "Case studies on Transport Policy".

Impulse contributions should challenge the research community with state-of-the-art insights into freight transport modelling on urban, national, or international level by addressing the sub-topics of the workshop. References to case studies providing proof of concept are encouraged. The contributions will be reviewed by the session chairs and workshop organisers. Selected impulse contributions will initiate the discussions in the breakout sessions.

Special issue in "Case Studies on Transport Policy"

The workshop results will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier journal “Case Studies on Transport Policy”. Contributions on the topics discussed in the workshop, on presentations held in the workshop and papers triggered by the discussions during the workshop are welcome. Please ensure that they are focusing on case studies related to the interface between data collection and modelling of freight transport.

Session chairs will get in touch with participants for joined contributions, but all participants are also welcome to submit own contributions.
