This International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has been successfully reconvened annually for the last fourteen years. It has always attracted a wide international spread of delegates and is well established as the premier annual event of its type. It first started in
Southampton in 1995; continuing in Barcelona (1996); Acquasparta, Italy (1997); Lisbon (1998); Rhodes (1999); Cambridge, UK (2000); Lemnos, Greece (2001); Seville (2002); Crete (2003); Dresden (2004); Algarve (2005);

Transportation in cities with its related environmental and social concerns is a topic of the utmost priority for urban authorities and central government organisations around the world. Urban Transport systems require considerable studies to safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety.

The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems in general and the need for a healthier environment has led to an increased level of research
around the world. This is reflected in the proceedings of this well-established meeting which demonstrates the steady growth and research into urban transport systems. The variety of topics covered by the conference are of primary importance for analysing the complex interaction of the urban transport environment and for establishing action strategies for transport and traffic problems.

The Conference will be of interest to engineers, scientists and managers working in industry, universities, research organisations and government; involved in the planning and management of urban transportation systems and transport policy.
