The ATRF is the principal transport research conference in Australia and New Zealand. It brings together transport researchers, policymakers, advisors and practitioners from a range of disciplines to share and build upon the latest research and thinking. The conference is held in a different location each year.
The ATRF is underpinned by a three-level organisation.
- The Executive Committee comprises representatives of academia, federal and state governments and private consultancies across Australia and New Zealand and it coordinates the forward program for the conference.
- The Scientific Committee oversees the peer review of conference papers submitted for the annual conference.
- The Local Organising Committee has primary responsibility for running the conference in the host city.
