Welcome

Kia ora koutou katou,

We are pleased to announce the 39th Australasian Transport Research Forum (ATRF) Conference to be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 27th to 29th Nov 2017. ATRF is the principal transport research conference in Australia and New Zealand. It brings together transport researchers, policymakers, advisors and practitioners from a range of disciplines to share and build upon the latest research and thinking.

The conference will be hosted by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Transportation Research Centre, at the Grafton Campus of The University of Auckland. The Conference will be supported by the Auckland Forecasting Centre and will be combined with the 2017 NZ Ministry of Transport Knowledge Conference. It will provide an excellent opportunity for industry and academic institutions in Australasia to participate in discussion of current and emerging transport issues.

The annual conference alternates between various states in Australia and New Zealand. The previous four conferences were held in Melbourne (2016), Sydney (2015), Brisbane (2013) and Perth (2012). The last time it was held in New Zealand was in Auckland in 2009. Please visit the ATRF website for more information and previous conference papers.

We are pleased to invite submissions of either Research-based or Professional Practice papers for consideration for inclusion in the conference programme.  You will need to use the relevant paper template to prepare your paper and you must be registered to attend ATRF 2017 in order to present an accepted paper.

Auckland is a vibrant and multicultural city with lots to see and do. It is New Zealand’s leading city and home to the largest Maori and Polynesian populations in the world. It is also considered by many the Gateway to the Pacific and its many cultures. For our international guests, please take the opportunity to plan an extended stay while you are here to explore the city and its many features, including cultural experiences and geological sites.

Please join the mailing list using the contact form to the right to be kept informed on latest information on the programme, activities and key speakers.

Come join us in Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland, Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud, New Zealand in November 2017.
