About the Transport Practitioners’ Meeting

The Transport Practitioners’ Meeting started in the 70s as the ‘Summer Annual Meeting’ – a place for the small and growing community of Transport Planners to get together, network and share ideas.

The event has stayed true to its roots over the years, becoming the meeting place for all transport planners, highways engineers, placemakers and urban transport designers. TPM brings the wider transport and built environment community together for two days of world class networking, idea sharing and lively debate.

#2019TPM will be held 10 – 11 July 2019 at The Examination Schools in Oxford. There is plenty of opportunity to get involved be it presenting a poster or presentation, sponsoring a network session or simply soaking in the atmosphere – The Transport Practitioners’ Meeting is a must attend event for any practitioner!

The Transport Practitioners’ Meeting is organised by PTRC, a company within CILT(UK).

A Call for Papers has been issued encouraging practitioners to submit abstracts that share knowledge and fresh ideas on a range of transport topics and issues. Abstracts covering the latest developments in global trends, shared economy, modelling, marketing and many more are sought to generate lively discussion.

Regardless of your career level, presenting at TPM offers numerous invaluable opportunities. More experienced practitioners will benefit from presenting to a diverse and knowledgeable community of peers, offering plenty of opportunity to debate and disseminate information presented. Young practitioners will gain confidence and enthusiasm for presenting to the friendly and knowledgeable audience of fellow professionals.

Abstract submissions for papers, posters and workshops will be accepted until 31 January 2019. The Abstract Committee will consider all submitted abstracts in order to deliver an engaging and informative programme. Authors will be notified if their abstract has been selected by 1 March 2019.

Submitting an abstract through the Call for Papers is recognised as an important contribution to the development of technical and professional skills and will additionally count towards CPD hours.
