About the Symposium

The 2014 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research was held in Delft, the Netherlands, on June 24-27, 2014. The conference provided a unique international forum for academics and practitioners at the intersection of economics, planning, design, engineering, and other relevant disciplines. The conference aimed 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. The conference brought together research from all parts of the world.

The Delft University of Technology hosted this conference in the bicycle-friendly city of Delft in the heart of the Randstad Holland. In addition to the technical program, the conference provided a day tour through parts of the Randstad, including transit-oriented development in the city of The Hague. Hotel rooms were pre-booked in the historical city center, within walking distance of the university campus (public transport also available).

In addition to presentations based on peer-reviewed papers, the conference program included plenary presentations from:

  • Glenn Lyons 
    Professor of Transport and Society, University of the West of England, and founding Director of the Centre for Transport and Society
  • Patricia Mokhtarian
    Professor of Telecommunications and Travel Behavior Research, Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis
  • Bert van Wee
    Professor of Transport Policy, Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, Delft University of Technology
