For those with a tourism transport interest. As co-convenor I would be especially pleased to see some ‘cycle tourism’ submissions to this special track.

Special track 5 - Tourism and Transport: Issues and challenges 
 
Since 1980s tourism studies have highlighted the importance of transport in the expansion of tourism activities. Transport technological evolution has allowed going further, faster, cheaper and safer, therefore boosting tourism flows worldwide. However, transport is not only an origin-destination flow or an in-between spatial component; transport is a powerful business activity and is increasingly seen as a touristic product and a key determinant of the success/failure of tourist destinations. Companies, destinations and tourists, are all strongly dependent on internal and external trends, challenges and risks tourism and transport is facing, from a technological, environmental, social or political perspective. 
 
This track welcomes papers that discuss the relation between tourism and transport and how tourism activity is being related to transport development. Possible topics are - but not limited to - the following: 
 
  *   Tourism and transport facing risk and uncertainty; 
  *   Tourist’s mobilities: users/consumption patterns; 
  *   History and future of transportation in tourism; 
  *   Competing places and destinations: the role of transports; 
  *   Smart, inclusive and sustainable transport in tourism; 
  *   Safety and security in tourism and transport. 
 
All abstracts will be subject to double-blind review by members of the scientific committee. Acceptance of a submission will be based on: theoretical and empirical significance; methodological soundness; relevance to the theme of the conference and logical clarity. The official language of the conference is English. Abstracts should be submitted via the ATLAS website using the abstract form provided. 
 
Abstracts should indicate that they are intended for the Tourism and Transport Special Track, and include the background, theoretical/practical implications, methods and/or data sources and indicative findings of the paper. Abstracts should have between 350-500 words. The title should be no more than 12 words. Authors should also indicate which conference topic their proposed paper relates to. Abstracts should be submitted before May 1st, 2015 by using this abstract submission form<http://www.atlas-euro.org/event_2015_lisbon_abstract_submission/tabid/242/language/en-US/Default.aspx>.
