    ****Background*****
    This Conference will be the post serial conference to the 9th and the 11th
    Mini EURO Conferences on Transportation (endorsed by the Association of
    European Operational Research Societies), organised respectively by the
    University of Belgrade (September, 1997) and Helsinki University of
    Technology (August, 1999). These two highly successful conferences
    emphasized the theme of treatment of uncertainty in transportation analysis.
    The issue of how to deal with uncertainty has become one of the major
    subjects in transportation engineering and planning as advances are made in
    Intelligent Transportation Systems. Building on the successes of the
    previous conferences, this conference in Bari will review the recent
    progresses in the subject and develops greater understanding of uncertainty
    treatment, as well as building a greater circle of colleagues interested in
    this discipline.

    *****The Scope of the Meeting*****
    Uncertainty is an inseparable part of many problems of transportation
    planning and engineering. The connection among uncertainty, information and
    choices has become the central subject in recent years in view of the
    world-wide effort to advance Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). This
    conference places greater emphasis on discussion of how uncertainty must be
    handled. The conference has asked Professor George Klir, to participate in
    "round table" discussions.
    Authors are invited to submit original papers that address uncertainty in
    the field of modelling traffic and transportation systems. Topics both in
    theory and innovative applications to real world problems are welcome. The
    program committee is especially interested in papers concerning discussion
    on Philosophy of Uncertainty Treatment, Possibility Theory, Probability
    Theory, Fuzzy Logic, Soft Computing, Information and Choice applied to
    transportation engineering and planning problems.
    Example application areas are:

    *Travel demand forecasting
    *Transportation planning, land use, and policy making processes
    *Traffic engineering, capacity analysis, traffic flow analysis, and
    measurement
    *Intelligent Transportation Systems
    *Philosophy of transportation science
