ETC 2021 Call for Contributions
Deadline for Abstracts: 08 February 2021
The Association for European Transport announces the start of the preparations for the 2021 European Transport Conference (ETC). The format will be different: the plan is for an online conference with two sessions each day and spread over a longer period. The international situation will be monitored closely to gauge whether it may also be possible to hold some aspects of the conference in person.
The European Transport Conference (ETC) attracts papers that address themes of relevance to the transport agenda in Europe and worldwide. We now invite Abstract Submissions for the 2021 European Transport Conference.
