Special conference theme
The conference will have a special focus on climate action in transport. While all transport topics remain important, papers, keynote speakers, site visits and sponsorships related to this theme are highly encouraged. This will stimulate lively discussion and forward-looking thinking to move the transport research agenda towards a net zero future.

Would you like your organisation to show its support for the ATRF Conference?
Australasian Transport Research Forum (ATRF) has become a premier transport research forum in Australasia that seeks to maintain open dialogue among researchers, policymakers, advisors and practitioners, stimulating debate and forward-looking considerations of transport research across a wide range of subject areas. We look forward to continuing this journey and welcoming you to Perth for the next forum.
The Planning and Transport Research Centre (PATREC), a collaboration between Western Australian Government and universities, is pleased to coordinate the ATRF Conference 2023 at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
The Western metropolis is the sunniest capital city in Australia, and its people are as bright as the blue skies overhead. Summer arts festivals collide with days on the water, walks in one of the largest inner-city parks, and half-hour drives to fringing wineries and bushland where you can see kangaroos and cockatoos. Rottnest Island/Wadjemup, famous for its smiling quokkas and picture-perfect bays, is only a 30-minute ferry trip across the ocean.
