Annual Conference


On 17-18 March 2021 at the Millennium Hilton Hotel Bangkok, His Excellency Arkhom Termpittayapaisith, Minister of Finance, Thailand made honor to preside over the opening ceremony of the 14th ATRANS Annual Conference on “Transportation for a Better Life: Future Potential of Transportation and Urban Model Post COVID Era” organized by Asian Transportation Research Society (ATRANS) in collaboration with International Association for Traffic and Safety Sciences (IATSS).

COVID-19 pandemic has already produced tangible impacts on urban mobility, leading to individuals' adjustment in daily activities, including in-home and out-of-home activities, as well as long-distance travel. So, it is vital important for cities of the need to rethink planning policies moving from city planning to urban life planning, acting on the dynamics of space and time with the imposition of the issue of geographical proximity as a factor on which to calibrate the spatial reorganization  of services, businesses and management of social dynamics.

The need to access a reliable digital infrastructure become increasingly important, and certain aspects of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are critical in a period of isolation as it will provide the increased ICT opportunities from telework, telemedicine, food delivery and logistics, online payments, remote learning and entertainment to avoid contact and reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. Regional cooperation on transport connectivity would be the key issue in helping to provide effective response in the course of a pandemic and in the subsequent recovery efforts for Sustainable Development, building resilience, and for the public’s health and safety.

Nevertheless, the questions are for how long the recovery will take, what the future cities normal will look like, and what this means for our transportation, urban model/design, mobility systems, road safety as well as socio-economic characteristics and environment impacts such as decarbonization remains unclear.

The objective of the conference is to bring together academia, experts, and those devising better solutions for the increasingly demanding challenge of Future Potential of Transportation and Urban Model Post COVID Era.

The reputable well-known speakers who are expert in transportation, urban planning, economics, autonomous vehicles, safety, digital technologies, and environment will be invited from government agencies, academic, and private sectors to deliver some talks in the conference sessions.
