Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter summarises the keynote speech given to open the 15th IATBR conference held in July 2018 in Santa Barbara, California. The chapter starts with a brief overview of the history of the association, to then discuss with some details the contribution of the IATBR community to the travel behavior research. The chapter focuses on the complexity of travel behavior and the interdisciplinary nature of the researches needed to study (understand, measure, model and forecast) travel behavior. The chapter discusses the extent to which the researches produced by the IATBR community succeeded in this task and opens up a window to the more recent research in the intersection with neuroscience that represents one of the current and future challenges ahead of us.
