Mobility & Transport Forum

The IIID Mobility & Transport Forum serves the shared interests of planners, designers, researchers, suppliers, users, transport authorities and educators. It provides a forum for face-to-face discussions on the latest developments and trends and their expected impact.

Over the years the Forum has successfully created a network of individuals and teams who share a common interest in traffic/transport related design, research and technology.

Conference website and call for papers

Cities have many faces, they are a conglomerate of multiple entities compressed into a densitiy that is highly challenging for the people who live and work there. High diversity in population, a multilingual environment, the gap between digital possibilities and the reality of the travel experience. The conference in Mumbai is a call to understand individual perspectives on navigating and “using” the city, and how the quality of the mobility experience will be shaping city life in the future.

For the first time in 2019: Mobility Talk

This format of "Mobility Talks" is intended as a smaller scale, more local/regional activity around the topic of mobility. Therefore the Mobility Talks will not necessarily be in English. We made a start with Munich, Germany, in March 2019.

Universal Mobility – barrierefrei war gestern
Wie gehen wir mit den vielfältigen Anforderungen an Mobilität um, welche Rolle spielen aktuelle Normen für Barrierefreiheit in ganzheitlichen Gestaltungslösungen?
Inmitten der Ausstellung der diesjährigen Universal Design Competition diskutieren wir, ob und wie Universal Design in der Mobilität angekommen ist.
Diversity of people: tall, small, wheelchair basketball player, blind man, cultural differences
