INSTR 2018

We are pleased to invite you to attend and participate in the 7th International Symposium on Transport Network Reliability, which will be held in Sydney on 17-19 January 2018. The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for participants from universities, government and industry to exchange ideas on the latest developments in the field of transport network reliability. Transport networks support the full spectrum of human activities and their supporting supply chains, and when disaster strikes provide life
lines for rescue services and survivors, so their reliability is a matter of global concern. There will be ample time for interaction among participants, a welcome reception, lunches, morning and afternoon teas, and a conference dinner. The conference will be preceded on 16 January 2018 by a day of tutorials for anyone interested, but particularly post-graduate students.

Previous symposia in this series took place in Kyoto (2001), Christchurch (2004), The Hague (2007), Minneapolis (2010), Hong Kong (2012) and Nara (2015).

Call for abstracts
We invite you to submit an extended abstract (maximum 4 pages) with an original contribution related to transport network reliability. The scope of disciplines covered by the symposium is wide, so technical, operational, economic, policy, or inter-disciplinary contributions, are welcome.
