TKC2019 Masthead Final

Submission of topics for the Transport Knowledge Conference 2019 are now open. 

The 6th annual Transport Knowledge Conference will be held at the James Cook, Wellington on Thursday 5th of December. The purpose of the conference is to bring together the transport research, data and evaluation community with government officials and policy teams from the across the wider transport sector to promote the use of evidence in decision-making. 

The theme for the conference is Transport’s contribution to wellbeing and liveability.

The Transport Outcomes Framework(external link) identifies the 5 outcomes (inclusive access, healthy & safe people, environmental sustainability, resilience & security, and economic prosperity) government is seeking to achieve to deliver the desired transport system.   All of these outcomes are inter-related, and need to be met as a whole to improve intergenerational wellbeing and the liveability of New Zealand’s cities, towns, and provinces. To make a positive contribution across the five outcomes, the transport system also needs to be integrated with land use planning, urban development, and regional development strategies.

The conference organisers will accept topics that best align to the conference theme and Transport Outcomes Framework. This year we will consider abstracts for the following formats: 

  • Presentation - 20 minutes (including Q&A time)
  • Poster - no larger than A3 in size (landscape or portrait)

 There will be prizes for best parallel session presentation and best poster, as determined by conference delegates.

If interested, please submit your conference presentation title and abstract (<150 words) summarising the content of your presentation by Friday 20 September 2019.
