Message from the International Scientific Committee (ISC)

Along the years urban residents from various socio-economic groups have often been deprived of professional and social opportunities due to being captive to transport options.


Along the years urban residents from various socio-economic groups have often been deprived of professional and social opportunities due to being captive to transport options.

Research has already concluded that situations of exclusion of simply unequal access to vital resources create severe gaps in the population perception of fairness and can evolve into damaging situations for society itself, e.g. as social revolt, discriminatory feeling, and insecurity.

Moreover, lack of mobility and accessibility problems can hinder quality of life and social support and ultimately represent an opportunity cost whenever less able people are restricted from contributing to society. Research regarding social inclusion includes a wide diversity of aspects, from access to employment to social interaction, or even subjective aspects about stability and individual satisfaction. All these elements contribute to the feeling of well-being and belonging. Accessible and well-designed inclusive communities benefit Society. For elderly people, no longer enrolled in the active workforce, the transportation system is a way to maintain social bonds. Accessible public transport and soft modes of mobility can play a fundamental role in the empowerment of ageing population, as well as other deprived groups of our societies.

 

This conference aims to provide research and practice insights into the most critical aspects of organization of urban access and mobility. Accepted papers cover topics from all levels of decision – Strategic, Tactical and Operational – and reflect upon the need for transversal decision across sectors that have a determinant influence in the performance of the urban mobility system, such as environment, energy, land use, information, intelligent technology, etc.

 

Like previous CODATU conferences the value proposition is focused on a rich learning process accruing from the interaction between practitioners and researchers who will have the opportunity to brainstorm over all conference topics.
