Proceeding of the symposium include 57 papers that point out the most recent advances in automation and control as applied to the various transport fields with emphasis on the systems aspect. The main topics dealt with are: urban as well as road and highway traffic control; bus control systems; urban transportation systems on segregated tracks; air and railway transportation systems. In all these fields, the emphasis is placed on the link between the more or less theoretical research and the practical applications. Sessions are also devoted to modeling and decision aids methods as well as to the methods proper to provide harmony between transport planning and social organization planning. Some papers are in French with English abstracts. Following is a partial list of titles and authors of the papers presented. Methodology and Programming Package for Railway Traction Simulation.
