International Choice Modelling Conference 2017

Vineyard Hotel, Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa

3 April 2017 – 5 April 2017


The International Choice Modelling Conference (ICMC) brings together leading researchers and practitioners from across the world and across different areas of study, including but not limited to transport studies, marketing decision making, environmental valuation, and health economics. The aim of the conference is to review recent advancements in knowledge and understanding in methodology as well as real world applications of choice models and stated choice and revealed preference survey techniques.

After two UK conferences in 2009 & 2011, followed by Sydney, Australia, in 2013 and Austin, Texas, in 2015, the ICMC steering committee is pleased to bring the conference to Africa in 2017. The conference will be held in Cape Town and will be jointly organised by the Centre for Transport Studies at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and the Choice Modelling Centre (CMC) at the University Leeds in the United Kingdom.

The 2017 Conference will be held at the beautiful Vineyard Hotel in Newlands from Monday 3 April to Wednesday 5 April 2017.
