STRC 2021 | 21st Swiss Transport Research Conference

The organizing committee of STRC has the pleasure to announce the call for abstracts for the 2021 Swiss Transport Research Conference.

Due to COVID situation, the conference has been postponed. We expect it will take place in Monte Verità (Ascona) from September 12h to September 14th.

The conference is a forum that brings together Swiss researchers adopting many different approaches to understanding transport phenomena. As such, the conference hosts topics across a wide spectrum in transport and land use: from logistics and travel behavior, traffic engineering, railway engineering, to environmental impact analysis and land use modeling. The following keynote speakers have confirmed their attendance:

Keynote Speakers Institution
Ludovic Leclercq Université Gustave Eiffel
