From 14-16 September, Delft University of Technology hosts the 5th annual symposium of the European Association of Research in Transportation (hEART). TPM and CEG professors Caspar Chorus and Serge Hoogendoorn are organising chairs.

The symposium is an interdisciplinary research conference, covering all areas of transportation research, with a focus on quantitative methods and analysis of transport systems. Keynote speakers are Dirk Helbing, Harry Timmermans and Avishai Ceder. The aim is to connect research in transport modelling, transport economics, and transport policy with advanced practice. Bringing together leading experts and promising young researchers, the symposium offers an opportunity for scientific discussion and interaction in relatively small groups. There will be a summer school intended for PhD students the day before the symposium (Sept 13, 2016).
