2014 - The 32nd CAITR conference

The 32nd CAITR conference was hosted by the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rCITI) at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia on the 17-18th February 2014.

CAITR (Conference of Australian Institutes of Transport Research) represents a forum for transport researchers and professionals to present and discuss their work with peers and colleagues in a supportive,informal environment and to be part of a network of expertise. CAITR is particularly valuable to research students (PhDs, Masters and Undergraduates), and recently qualified researchers, providing an opportunity to present work in progress and receive constructive feedback.
