The Conference
The 11th International Conference on Travel Behaviour Research, organized by the International Association for Travel Behaviour Research (IATBR), will be held at Kyoto University, Japan, in August 2006. This is the first conference in the IATBR series to be held in Asia.

World is being integrated economically and culturally through globalization; our action space continues to broaden itself with increasing economic wealth; and our information space is extending exponentially with ICT technology. With the theme of gthe Expanding Sphere of Travel Behaviour Research,h this conference aims at defining the roles and directions of travel behavior research in this new era.

The conference will address researchers and practitioners who aim at understanding, measuring, and modeling travel behavior, and who endeavor to apply results of travel behavior research to the development and evaluation of transport policies. Following the IATBR tradition, the conference will comprise a set of workshops as well as plenary sessions and parallel sessions for paper presentations. Conference attendees are expected to participate in workshops of their interests to contribute toward the development of research agendas in the respective subject areas. Workshop resource papers, workshop reports, and selected papers from the conference will be published in its proceedings.

The Conference Title --- 11th International Conference on Travel Behaviour Research

Date --- Aug. 16-20, 2006
Venue --- Kyoto Univ. Clock Tower Centennial Hall in Kyoto city

Special Note
The Daimonji Okuribi (bonfires) will be held in the evening of August 16. A vantage point will be arranged for conference attendees to enjoy their prime views. The event is one of the three major festivals of Kyoto, along with the Gion Matsuri and Jidai Matsuri. The origin of the Daimonji bonfires is not known, but historical records are found from the 16th century. They are for sending the spirits of the dead back to gthe other worldh after their return to this world for three days during the Bon period in August. Kyoto will be crowded during the period; we have booked enough hotel rooms for the conference, but make early reservations if you plan to stay in Kyoto before the conference.
