8th International Symposium on Transport Network Reliability (INSTR)

KTH Royal Institute of Technology are pleased to invite you to attend and participate in the 8th International Symposium on Transport Network Reliability (INSTR), which will be held in Stockholm on 24-26 June 2020. The INSTR series is the premier gathering for the world’s leading researchers and professionals interested in transport network reliability, to discuss both recent research and future directions in this increasingly important field of research. Transport networks support the full spectrum of human activities and their supporting supply chains, and when disaster strikes provide life lines for rescue services and survivors, so their reliability is a matter of global concern. The scope of the symposium includes all aspects of analysis and design to improve network reliability.



  •  User perception of unreliability and vulnerability
  •  Public policy and reliability of travel times
  •  The valuation and economics of reliability
  •  Network reliability modeling and estimation
  •  Transport network robustness and resilience
  •  Reliability of public transport and supply chains
  •  Travel behavior under uncertainty
  •  Vehicle routing and scheduling under uncertainty
  •  Risk evaluation and management for transport networks
  •  Traffic management (including ITS) to improve network reliability
  •  Evacuation and disaster relief distribution
  •  Network interdependencies and cyber security
  •  Reliability in the era of connected and automated vehicles


Important dates

  • Extended abstracts submission deadline: October 2019
  • Acceptance notification: January 2019
  • Final extended abstract submission deadline: March 2020
