We are pleased to announce the 2014 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research, to be held in Delft, the Netherlands, June 24–27, 2014. The conference provides a unique international forum for academics and practitioners at the intersection of economics, planning, design, engineering, and other relevant disciplines. The conference aims to develop a better understanding of the interaction between the dynamics of land use and transport, with an emphasis on the way in which the built environment can contribute to more sustainable transport in a rapidly changing world.
