Integrated land use/transport models for carbon neutral strategies

International Symposium at Osaka University Nakamoshima Center, Japan

24 September 2024, 9:30 to 16:30


While most sectors of the economy have massively reduced emissions, transport emissions have remained almost unchanged for 30 years. Integrated land use and transport models can be used to investigate the impact of measures in land use or transport planning before they are implemented. Due to the high urgency of reducing emissions in the transport sector, it is of great importance to analyse measures such as decarbonization of transport, transit-oriented development, intensive densification in urban development, 15-minute neighbourhoods and the like for their environmental and social effects. 

Hosting Institution

This symposium is hosted jointly by Prof. Dr. Masanobu Kii , Osaka University, and Prof. Dr. Rolf Moeckel, Technical University of Munich. Further members of the scientific committee include Ms Joanna Ji and Ms Zhihua Jin


Participation is free of charge, but limited to 25 participants to foster engaged discussions between presentations. Presentations were selected based on the numerous abstracts submitted by researchers working on intergrated land use/transport modeling. 

The program of this workshop will be published soon. No further submissions can be accepted at this point. 


The symposium will be held at the 8th Floor of Osaka University Nakamoshima Center in Japan. This state-of-the-art conference center provides a comfortable environment for vibrant discussions on current research issues.

Address:  4-3-53 Nakanoshima, Kita-ku, Osaka, 530-0005
