We are pleased to announce the Euro Working Group on Transportation EWGT 2020 which will take place at the Aliathon Resort in Paphos, Cyprus, September 16-18 2020. The event will be organized by the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (KIOS CoE), University of Cyprus.

As you are already aware of, due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions, the 23rd EURO Working Group on Transportation (EWGT 2020), will be held in a hybrid format with both physical and virtual presence.  Regarding the presentations, to limit the possibility of technical problems, we have opted for a format where all contributed paper presentations will take the form of a pre-recorded video, for both virtual and physical presence participants.  The video presentations will be played during the time of each session, while the authors should be available to answer any questions at the end of the video.  The video presentations will also be available online along with the technical program for some time after the end of the conference. Please inform us in case you do not wish your video presentation to appear on the technical program.
