The 19th International Symposium on Transportation and Traffic Theory (ISTTT) will be hosted by the University of California, Berkeley from July 18 to July 20, 2011. The venue will be the Claremont Hotel located near the campus.

The ISTTT series is the premier gathering for the world's leading transportation and traffic theorists, and for those who are interested in contributing to or gaining a deeper understanding of the field.

The symposium covers both scientific and operational aspects of transportation and traffic, spanning all modes of transport, including freight as well as private and public transport.

Publication Information

The editors of Transportation Research, Parts A-F, have agreed to publish papers accepted for this symposium. Thus, all symposium papers will be published in the Transportation Research series (unless an author opts out, of course).

In addition, all symposium papers will be published - both in a book version of the proceedings and online - by Elsevier. The online version will appear in "Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences," which is part of the Scopus database of citations and abstracts.
