We are looking for between four and six papers for a special session on 'Airport Intermodalities in History' at the T2M conference in Madrid from 15-18 November.
Papers could examine any problems / topics within the general theme of airports as places where different forms of transport meet and need co-ordinating: typically, buses, trains, taxis, and hire- and private motor cars, have catered for airline generated traffic. There is also significant local worker and regional freight transport (including waste removal). The special session is concerned with ways in which these 'landside' operations at airports evolved and were negotiated, supplied, and managed historically (perhaps even increasingly by multinational companies), and how they interfaced with air traffic services logistically and spatially. Topics might include airport revenues and cross-subsidies, land acquisition, technological innovations, corridor and parking design, and airport / metropolitan planning and conflicts. Papers may be case studies or broad surveys.
Abstract (150 words) to reach Gordon Pirie by 1 May 2012.
