Insights into TRA 2018 by the TRA Committee Chairs
The preparations for TRA 2018 are going well and the three committees are working steadily to make this event even more outstanding than its predecessors. In an interview, the TRA 2018 Chairs Ingolf Schädler, Christian Chimani and Martin Russ talked about their goals, the TRA 2018 motto and the Viennese novelties and highlights that will further enrich this international conference.
Submission deadline for TRA Interactive Zone extended until 17 March 2017!
When participating in TRA, you expect latest research results, international political discussions and great networking possibilities. With the new Interactive Zone, embedded in the exhibition hall, TRA 2018 can offer even more. The zone gives the possibility to show and experience complex research projects and latest market launches in an interactive way via demonstrations, discussions or hackathons. The call for interest is extended until 17 March 2017, so do not miss your chance to present your technology or service indoors or in live traffic!
Researchers, companies and public authorities will come together at TRA in April 2018 to discuss the latest research results in mobility and transport and learn from each other. Use this possibility and submit your abstracts under the motto “Digitalisation” in one or several of 12 available topics which refer to all modes of transport. The call will be open until 21 March, 2017.
