We are pleased to announce that the 2020 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, July 13-16, 2020. The conference will feature original, full-length papers on the interaction of transport and land use from the broad set of disciplines engaged in transport and land use research. The paper deadline was December 31, 2019.

Each conference registrant may be a co-author on multiple papers, but there is a limit of one presentation per registrant. Sessions will be developed from high-quality papers received and authors of a select number of papers will be invited, based upon their conference paper reviews, to resubmit their papers for a second round of reviews for publication in the Journal of Transport and Land Use.

Papers are organized around the following themes. Theme leaders will be in charge of the paper review and selection process. Questions about the specific themes should be directed to the theme leaders identified below.
