The Transport Research Association for New South Wales (TRANSW) is a multi-institutional society for transportation studies founded in 2018. An amalgamation of transport researchers from the University of Sydney, University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) working closely with industry partners such as Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), the Society aims to foster and support cohesive cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional excellence in transport research and practice. The Society hosts an annual symposium on transport studies in addition to regular seminars and workshops. The Society also produces high quality research outputs from innovative collaboration across institutions. Community engagement is also a top priority for TRANSW with plans to hold a variety of informative open days showcasing the state’s transport infrastructure and current research advances.
The Symposium is organised each year by one of the participating universities. Following the success of the Symposiums in 2018 (organised by University of Sydney) and 2019 (organised by the UNSW), UTS had begun preparing to host the 2020 version. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the face to face Symposium was postponed in 2020 and the TRANSW Virtual Symposium was co-hosted by all the member institutions. The event was well received and given the considerable COVID-19 outbreak in New South Wales in 2021, the TRANSW Symposium Committee has decided to again host a “Virtual Symposium” co-hosted by each of the education institutions and joining us for the first time this year is the University of Wollongong Australia.
The fourth TRANSW Virtual Symposium will be held as lunch time learning sessions during the following dates and times:
• Tuesday, November 30, 2021 – 12:00PM – 1:30PM
• Wednesday December 1, 2021 – 12:00PM – 1:30PM
• Thursday, December 2, 2021 – 12:00PM – 1:30PM
