We encourage submissions on all topics of transport and mobility history, including the history of tourism and travel, diffusion studies, urban transport and intermodal and international comparisons. We have received a large number of papers already. Although we are still accepting proposals in all areas, we would especially welcome submissions for the special sessions on transport museums and material culture. In the latter case we are especially interested in short contributions on any issue within the realm of the public history of transport and mobility as well as the question of outreach to a wider public. We are not seeking full-blown papers here, but short memoís and statements (2 ñ 5 pages). On the basis of these contributions we intend to organise a debate on the relationship between academic and museum representatives and the potential role an international association could have.
