“Modelling for Accessibility and Regional Development”
Workshop Integrated on the seminar:
APPLIED RESEARCH AND MODELING ADVANCES ON ACCESSIBILITY IN SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT - JOINT MEETING
International seminar titled ‘APPLIED RESEARCH AND MODELING ADVANCES ON ACCESSIBILITY IN SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT - JOINT MEETING’ which represents a junction between two different international seminars but whose themes are related: the ‘5th Seminar of Spatial Econometrics in honor of Doctor J.H.P. Paelinck’ (dedicated to the theme of Econometrics Territorial with numerous applications in Europe and in the world) and the seminar ‘NECTAR - Network on European Communications and Transport Activities Research, Cluster 6 on Accessibility Meeting ’ (dedicated to the importance of accessibility in the development of European regions). This meeting will take place in Coimbra, on 26 and 27 October 2012, at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Coimbra.
Although these two seminars have as primary objective scientific research and selection of works of excellence for possible publication, its junction also aims to present case studies on applications that demonstrate the relationship between accessibility and territorial economic development, using new analysis methodologies such as territorial econometrics.
