There were a series of invited lectures on advanced topics of research and applications, as follows:. There were numerous occasions for holding informal discussions during the coffee breaks and the complimentary lunches provided. Papers presented at this conference will appear in Vol. A few papers were selected for publication in the International Journal of Transport Development and Integration. This Journal covers all transportation modes and the general topic of transport systems, with particular emphasis on their integration and harmonisation.
The variety of topics covered by the Journal reflects the complex interaction of transportation systems and the environment, and the need to establish integrated strategies. At the meeting, members of the committee were thanked for their support of the Conference and were encouraged to make suggestions for bringing the Conference topics list up to date and also advise WIT on the evolution of the conference.
The Conference dinner took place at Salpoente, a speciality fine dining restaurant in the canal area of Aveiro. The building used to be used by the local salt pan industry. One of the highlights of the evening was the short ride there on the canal, on narrow boats known as Moliceiro, which were originally used to transport sea grass vegetation taken from the canal to fertilize the nearby arable lands. Nowadays these vessels exist only as beautifully decorated pleasure craft for tourists to enjoy the canals, and this is one of the reasons that Aveiro is referred to as the Venice of Portugal.
Delegates enjoyed the ambience of the ancient building, starting with sparkling local wine, followed by a five course meal. First was seafood soup with parsley and coriander sopa de peixe, pevide e coentros , Folhado de Alheira a kind of sausage roll with a delicious meat filling , followed by bacalhau on chick pea mash with green vegetables, then veal with potatoes vegetables and beans.
For dessert we enjoyed a pannacotta with poached fruit then coffee to end. All the courses were accompanied by local wines and the atmosphere of the whole evening was particularly appreciated by the participants.
