CALL for PAPERS
13th Mini-EURO Conference
"Handling Uncertainty in the Analysis of Traffic and Transportation Systems"
9th Meeting of the EURO Working Group on Transportation
"Intermodality, Sustainability and Intelligent Transportation Systems"
June 10 to 12, 2002
Polytechnic University of Bari
Dept. of Highways and Transportation
SCOPE of the 13th Mini-EURO Conference
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
worldwide 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, internationally
known expert on philosophy of uncertainty and information, 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
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
Intelligent Transportation Systems
Philosophy of transportation science
SCOPE of the 9th Meeting of the EURO Working Group on Transportation
The attention of research programmes is now devoted to key topics of
transport intermodality, sustainable mobility and intelligent transportation
Therefore, the Meeting is targeted to present and discuss the state of the
art in the fields of traffic, transportation and logistic systems on the
basis of the research contributions given by scientists and institutions
worldwide. In particular, the Meeting will focus on knowledge and tools
available today to plan, design, manage and control modal and intermodal
transport systems. Moreover, new opportunities brought forward by
intelligent transportation systems will be given due consideration.
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION and TIME SCHEDULE
Since the subjects have been extended to fit the topics of both the
Conferences, the new deadline for papers submission will be January the 10th

references) by January 10, 2002. The abstract needs to be submitted to the
Conference Secretariat, following the instructions indicated on the web site
of the Conference.
The International Organizing Committee will review all abstracts and notify
the authors regarding acceptance. The approval notification will be
forwarded by January 31 2002. Once the papers or ideas have been accepted,
all authors will be asked to confirm their participation by February 28
All extended abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings and
will be available at the time of registration.
