Shenzen China Roadmeet, Nov 1-3 2019
« on: August 16, 2019, 05:16:17 PM »

No, I'm not hosting. Nor am I even attending.
But while bumping around the American Association of Geographers' (aka: AAG) website this afternoon, I came across a webpage for the '3rd International Workshop on Roadology' being hosted by the Institute for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences at the Southern University of Science & Technology (in Shenzen China)
https://ias.sustc.edu.cn/3rd-roadology-workshop/?lang=zh (unless you can read Mandarin Chinese, you will need to translate the page)

Unfortunately, the deadline to submit a paper to be presented at this event has passed (July 1)

Roadology? Don't they know there's a perfectly cromulent word for that?

Did anyone ever figure out the difference between viatology and transportology?

Transportology comes after environmentology.

I thought transportology is the scientific discussion of how to remove an ingested Hot Wheels vehicle?
