Bridging Transportation Researchers Conference #6 – Call for Papers

We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to Bridging Transportation Researchers Conference #6, a fully online conference. It is a great opportunity to participate in an international conference at no cost and with no emissions. We want to increase the presence of Asian researchers this year.  We look forward to your submissions.

About BTR#6:

At zero cost and practically zero carbon, BTR brings transportation engineers, planners, and policymakers together globally by removing the burden of travel, the cost of registration, and greenhouse gases associated with transport and accommodations. We welcome researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines, particularly individuals who are unable to obtain a visa or afford to travel to and participate in international conferences.

Please join us online on August 7 and 8, 2024, for two days of multi-track Zoom-based meetings.  Zoom links and session details (with 20- to 30-minute presentation slots) will be sent to all registrants after papers are submitted and reviewed and final topics are scheduled. Presentation time-zone preferences will be obtained from authors before scheduling.

Paper Submission Instructions:

The BTR#6 submission deadline is March 31, 2024.

All manuscripts should be written in English and, for double-blind review, should exclude any information revealing the names or affiliations of the authors. The submission process will be managed via EasyChair. BTR does not have proceedings, and submitting your work to BTR does not prevent you from submitting it to journals. You can also submit your recently published work for presentation at BTR. Papers should not exceed 10,000 words, including references.

EasyChair account registration and login are here. Authors may use this paper template (other formats are acceptable) and submit via this link.
