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 (virtual!) symposium is planned for 2021 in Portland, Oregon, in the United States. Learn more about the event and see the latest updates here Conference Co-Chairs Kelly Clifton, Portland State University Kelly Clifton serves as the interim Associate Vice President for Research and as a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Portland State University. She holds an affiliate appointment in the Urban Studies and Planning Program and is a fellow in the Institute for Sustainable Solutions. Her research, teaching and service activities are focused on transportation and how human mobility is shaped by their needs, the built environment, and technology. She is an internationally recognized expert on transport and land use interactions, travel behavior, pedestrian modeling, and equity in transportation policy. She bridges the fields of transportation engineering and planning and is known for qualitative and quantitative methodological approaches. Jennifer Dill, Portland State University Director of TREC and the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), Jennifer is also a professor of urban studies and planning. She is an internationally cited researcher on sustainable transportation. Among her research projects are Lessons from the Green Lanes: Evaluating Protected Bike Lanes in the U.S., Understanding Types of Cyclists Nationally, Pedestrian Observation and Data Collection Curriculum and more. Her research aims to understand people’s everyday travel decisions, with a focus on bicycling, walking, and transit. Yingling Fan, University of Minnesota Yingling Fan is a professor in the regional planning and policy area who works interdisciplinarily in the fields of land use, transportation, social equity, and public health. Her overarching research goal is to investigate the impacts of spatial planning (e.g., land use, growth management, and transit improvements) on human activities and movements as well as to understand the health and social aspects of such impacts. To this end, her research combines ecological and behavioral analyses, most quantitatively, as a means of addressing urban sustainability challenges. This event is hosted by the World Society for Transport and Land Use Research, in partnership with the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. The World Society for Transport and Land Use Research is the group that organizes the symposia and fulfills other aims of the Society. Its purpose as a society is to promote the interdisciplinary understanding of interactions between transport and land use and to provide a forum for debate and a mechanism for dissemination of research, while encouraging diverse viewpoints and backgrounds in our membership and activities. The Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) at Portland State University is home to the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), and other transportation programs. TREC produces research and tools for transportation decision makers, develops K-12 curriculum to expand the diversity and capacity of the workforce, and engages students and professionals through education.
