Transport, transport systems can be considered a kind of public goods, elementary for social and economic development, the functioning of the market, international trade and integration. Currently, the positive effects of transport and transport systems are challenged by environmental issues, its impact on climate change, sustainability of energy supply and capacity problems. As a consequence, the question appears how to support sustainable development of transport systems. Developing countries face challenges in developing proper transport and logistic infrastructure supporting their developmental aims. In developed countries, innovation and technological development have significant impact on safety, emission, energy efficiency of means of transport, while the demand for passenger transport is tried to be influenced by different types of policies.

    While mobility is important for regional and national competitiveness, the mentioned negative impacts and capacity problems may pose a serious challenge to economic development at local and national scale. Increasing demand for passenger and good transport leads to serious congestion problems, destruction of urban ecosystems, reduced functionality of urban ecosystems, etc.

    This session of ISINI 2020 invites scientists, policy makers, and representatives from business and institutions involved in transport. Articles and presentations may deal with case studies, empirical research and theoretical reflections on the following issues:

    • International transport (e.g., the importance of transport for global trade, transport in global supply chains, intermodal and multimodal transport, development of transnational and global transport systems).
    • Urban, local and regional transport (e.g. urban transport policy, sustainable urban transport, development of urban/local/regional transport systems).
    • Transport and optimization of logistic chains.
    • Transport behaviour (e.g. determinants of transport behaviour, demand management).
    • Innovativeness in transport (e.g. technological solutions, commercialization of inventions, socio-economic importance of new technology).
    • The social role of transport (e.g. transport and social exclusion, demographic challenger, safety issues).
    • Transport, environment and climate change (e.g. the concept of circular economy in the transport sector, negative environmental externalities, the future of transport versus availability of fossil fuels, low-emission transport).
    • The limits to ever increasing mobility in the context of capacity of transport systems.
    • Other challenges in transport.
