An Email based mailing list has been established by the Universities Transport Study Group (UTSG). The list provides an electronic discussion forum and information resource for researchers in the field of transport primarily, but not exclusively, in the academic community.
The list was established in October 1993, and has a steadily growing membership, including researchers in all continents of the World.
The aim of the list is to facilitate information sharing, (e.g. news of new research, conferences, seminars and workshops) and to promote links, collaborative working, joint problem-solving and mutual support. Depending on the level of usage of the list and on demand, sub-lists may be set up in the future for special interests or particular types of information.
There is just over a week left to submit your abstracts for the 52nd Annual Conference of the Universities Transport Studies Group (UTSG) to be held at Loughborough University. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 9am on Monday 2nd March 2020 and further details about how to submit an abstract and a link to the submission point are available at https://www.welcometoimago.com/utsg2020-abstracts/.
