The THNS Forum is an International Symposium on the Sustainable Development of Urban Transport Systems. The Forum especially fosters the East-West exchange of knowledge advances: research outcomes, innovative technologies, implementation reports etc. It brings together academics, policy makers and business representatives (operators, constructors, consultants).

The THNS Forum jointly initiated in 2008 by Tongji University, ParisTech, and the French Ministry for the Environment. Over the years, it has been supported by Chinese and French Ministries of Transportation, Environment, Housing, Urban Planning, Rural Construction, Ecological and Solidary Transitions. From 2020, affected by the Covid-19 pandemics, three editions have been held online and have attracted more than 600 participants from 20 countries. In 2023, with the world gradually coming back to normal, THNS2023 is tentatively adapting a dual mode, i.e. online presentations from all over the word combined with on-site presentations taking place simultaneously in Shanghai and Paris. Call for contributions.
