Welcome Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to attend the 8th International Symposium on Travel Demand Management (TDM) in Taipei, Taiwan on September 26 – 29, 2017. This conference seeks to link the international communities of researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers who are concerned about or experienced in the theory and implementation of TDM. Within the intensive two-day discussion and opinion exchange, we are looking forward to the spark of innovative and visionary ideas that inspire the present and future direction of TDM, on both academic and industrial tracks.

This is the second time that this renowned conference comes to Asia, after the 2013 TDM symposium in Dalian, China. We would like to propose the theme of “Land Use and Travel Demand” for TDM 2017, to explore the TDM problem from its basics and highlight the characteristics of mixed land-use patterns in Asian cities. In viewing of technological innovation, ITS applications as well as on-demand services are also included in our program.

It has been confirmed that 35 papers are selected for presentation in the technical sessions while 12 well-known visionaries and experts from Europe, America and Asia-pacific are invited in keynote and special sessions in the symposium. More information and programs are available in the website of this symposium (

We look forward to welcoming all of you in Taipei.
