About the 21st International Transport and Air Pollution Conference (TAP 2016)
Towards energy transition and cleaner transport
International Transport and Air Pollution Conferences have been held since 1986 in Graz (Austria), Zurich (Switzerland), Avignon, Reims and Toulouse (France), Boulder (Colorado, USA), Thessaloniki (Greece), the last one being again in Graz. The 21st TAP conference will take place in Lyon (France) with the aim of bringing together scientists, international experts, users and decision makers to share their contributions on the current scientific knowledge of air pollution due to emissions from transport systems. Public authorities and state or local government agencies with jurisdiction over transport or air quality, community groups, operators, commercial carriers, nonprofit and other business entities are invited to participate and are welcome.
Transport sectors play a strategic and major role in the global market and fast changing economic and societal frame. Technologies, policies and citizen behaviors must be continually adapted towards the reduction of fossil energy and the increasing demand for mobility etc.
The 21st International Transport and Air Pollution Conference, organized by the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR) - Mobility, Planning and Environment Department (AME) will take place from May 24th (8:30 am) to 26th, 2016 (6:00 pm) in Lyon (France) at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS of Lyon). Its aim is to create a stage for exchanging the latest research results and sharing the advanced research methods and technologies.
The aim of TAP 2016 will be“Towards energy transition and cleaner transport” and their implication to air quality, with an emphasis on the programme topics.
