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.

The conference will be held in Kobe, Japan and will be jointly hosted by three universities in Japan.
