conference topics and call for papers


The 7th annual conference on Transportation studies, organised by research unit TTL- Transport Territory and Logistics of the Universitā Iuav di Venezia, will focus on the problems related to the mobility during the mass events. The conference will discuss on the new infrastructures and services required to satisfy the peak of demand during the event and the way to convert them to the standard requirements of the area after the event is over.


An event can be defined a mass event both in absolute and in relative terms compared to the size of the city and its transportation issues. Examples of this can be provided by the Olympic games and Other sport events, the Expos and the international Fairs, concerts, religious events and so on.


The conference will deal with:

- the case studies and a critical review of the past big events in the vision of the future ones

- an outlook on the next big events planned in the future i.e. London 2012, Milano 2015, Rio de Janeiro 2016, etc. with a study for the possible eligibility of Venice for the Olympic games in 2020

- the analysis of the mobility issues in the case of large events (demand forecast and models)

- upgrading and downgrading the transport systems

- projects and scenarios

- master plan and evaluation models.
