Bridging Transportation Researchers (BTR) Conference
Call for Papers

Conference Dates: August 9-10, 2023

Paper Submission deadline: April 30, 2023

At zero cost, and practically zero carbon, BTR brings transportation engineers, planners, & policymakers together globally by removing the burden of travel, the cost of registration, & greenhouse gases associated with transport & accommodations. We welcome researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines, particularly individuals who are unable to obtain a visa or afford traveling to and participating in international conferences.

Please join us online August 9 & 10 2023, for two days of multi-track Zoom-based meetings.  Zoom links & session details (with 20- to 30-minute presentation slots) will be sent to all registrants, after papers are submitted & reviewed and final topics are scheduled. Presentation time-zone preferences will be obtained  from authors prior to scheduling.

All manuscripts should be written in English (& <10,000 words, including references) and submitted (w/o author names showing) via EasyChair. BTR does not have proceedings, and submitting your work to BTR does not prevent you from submitting it to journals. You can also submit your recent published work for presentation at BTR.

·         Public transportation

·         Emerging mobility services (shared, electrified)

·         Intelligent transportation systems

·         Connected and automated vehicle operations & control

Infrastructure and Urban Development in the Developing World
22-23 August 2023, Tokyo, Japan

Many developing countries in Asia and the Pacific have been experiencing rapid urbanization. Continuous growth in urban population demands significant increase in infrastructure supply and upgrading in transport, energy, water supply and sanitation, information and communication technologies, etc. Meanwhile, effective supply of infrastructure is essential to ensuring that cities stay productive, livable and resilient to the increasing climate risks. In this context, evidence-based research is needed to deepen the understanding of the issues related to infrastructure and urban development in the developing countries and thus to better support policymaking. 

To promote the exchange of new research and ideas among researchers, policymakers, and development practitioners on the broad topic of infrastructure and urban development, the Economic Research and Regional Cooperation Department of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in partnership with Center 

for Research and Education in Program Evaluation (CREPE) and Center for International Research on the Japanese (CIRJE) at the University of Tokyo is organizing the subject conference. The grant fund for this conference was received from the Japan Fund for Prosperous and Resilient Asia and the Pacific
financed by the Government of Japan through the Asian Development Bank.

Interested authors should submit a draft paper or a two-page proposal by 31 March 2023 to Mr. Yi Jiang and Ms. Iva Sebastian-Samaniego (email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with “UrbanEcon_Submission_[your last name]” in the email’s subject line. While priority will be given to completed paper, proposals should include the title of the paper, author(s), affiliation, and contact 
information, and should address the main question(s) to be examined, relevant literature, unique contribution to the literature, and methodology to be employed.
