Partner Event: 2020 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research

Monday, July 13, 2020, 8:00am PDT to Thursday, July 16, 2020, 5:00pm PDT
July 13-16 2020

World Society for Transport and Land Use Research

The World Society for Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) promotes the understanding and analysis of the interdisciplinary interactions of transport and land use, offers a forum for debate, and provides a mechanism for the dissemination of information. The Society organizes the World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research.

The first symposium was held in Whistler, Canada 2011, the second was held at Delft, The Netherlands in 2014, and the third took place in Brisbane, Australia in 2017. The next symposium is planned for 2020 in Portland, Oregon, in the United States.

Save the date! Join us at Portland State University for the fourth triennial convening of WSTLUR—the premier conference of international researchers in transportation and land use.
