Important notice: CIT 2020 is postponed to 2021

Due to the spread of COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) and the state of alarm derived from the aforementioned crisis, the CIT2020 Organizing Committee and the Board of the Transport Engineering Forum (FIT), have agreed to postpone ONE year the celebration of the XIV Transport Engineering Congress.

In the coming weeks, the dates of the CIT2021 will be specified (estimated June / July 2021) and more detailed information on the new deadlines for papers submission and registrations will be provided. If you wish, the CIT2020 registrations, abstracts, and papers received to date could be kept for CIT 2021. Likewise, for those who wish to withdraw their registration, they will soon be informed of the steps to follow to request a refund.

We also want to take the opportunity to report that the sessions of young researchers scheduled for CIT2020 and the IV FIT Scientific Campus (initially scheduled for 2021) will be merged into a virtual Congress to be held from June 24 to 26, 2020. The main objective of this virtual Congress is to give young researchers the opportunity to present their work, to exchange information and scientific experiences, and to promote new ideas and lines of work. In the coming days, more information will be provided in this regard to the authors that apply for the awards for papers presented by young researchers via e-mail, on this website and/or on the FIT website.

We sincerely thank all authors, registered participants, sponsors and partners for their continued support of CIT 2020, and we hope that it will be extended to CIT2021.

Finally, we want to take this opportunity to express our solidarity with those affected by COVID-19 and our support for those who work to combat the pandemic.

The CIT 2020 Organizing Committee


14th Conference on Transport Engineering

The 14th Conference on Transport Engineering (CIT 2020) will be held in Burgos (Spain) from 24-26 June 2020. The venue of the Conference will be the Higher Polytechnic School of the University of Burgos.

The slogan of the CIT 2020 is: “R-Evolution of Transport”.
This theme arises that the current situation of transport, with costs and externalities (congestion, emissions, fuel consumption, road accidents, etc.) increasingly higher, need a change to return to the sustainable path. Therefore, we can ask ourselves if we need to evolve the traditional modes of transport or, on the contrary, what is needed is a revolution, involving a really significant change in the current trend.

As in previous editions, the CIT 2020 seeks to promote national and international exchange of scientific and professional works in different areas of transport, in search of solutions that allow us to follow this “R-evolution of transport”. A selection of papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Transportation Research Procedia, by the international publisher Elsevier.

CIT is promoted by the Transport Engineering Forum (FIT), a non-profit academic organization, whose aim is to promote and organize the conference, as well as to ensure its quality and orientation.

The Forum of transport engineering (FIT) was constituted in the year 2000, as a non-profit association, aiming to convene and develop the Conference on Transport Engineering, as well as promoting activities related to any of the Transport Engineering areas, both at national and international level. In particular, training, research, technology transfer and the dissemination of the transport engineering. Furthermore, the Transport Engineering Forum (FIT) gives the opportunity to win the Rafael Izquierdo Prize to those who have presented a doctoral thesis.
