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. We seek 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. Papers must be submitted by November 15, 2019. WSTLUR membership is not required to submit a paper.

Each conference registrant may be a co-author on multiple papers, but there is a limit of one presentation per registrant. Detailed submission instructions and conference information will be available here by July 2019. 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.

We will be accepting submissions starting July 2019. Please check this website for more details regarding the submissions.

Discounted registration rates at the symposium will be available for registrations from developing countries as well for students. WSTLUR will be offering a limited number of scholarships to students. WSTLUR is seeking submission from diverse disciplines and will be welcoming case studies especially from developing countries.

We are seeking original, full-length submissions on all the themes described below. 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. Detailed descriptions of these themes are below.
