Why become a NECTAR member?

  • You become member of an active multidisciplinary research community in the field of transport, networks, accessibility and communications research;
  • you can participate in NECTAR workshops and conferences at low lost. Usually, you need to cover only travel costs. Workshops and conferences require no fees and no or few hotel costs;
  • young researchers have reduced membership fees;
  • get a 50% discount in ordering books from the NECTAR series.

To participate in a NECTAR workshop one needs to be a NECTAR member for at least the year that the workshop take place; to participate in the NECTAR international conference one needs to be a member for at least two consecutive years (including the year the conference takes place).
