Conference Homepage Image

Welcome to CETRA 2020* home page!

It is our pleasure to invite you once more to Croatia, this time to Pula, 3000-year-old city located at the tip of Istria peninsula, to the 6th International Conference on Road and Rail Infrastructure (CETRA 2020*) that will be held on 20th - 21st May 2021 (postponed due to COVID-19).



CETRA 2020* further postponed to May 2021


Due to the circumstances arising from the ongoing spread of COVID-19 - the continuing danger it still poses to public health and safety, together with the increased imposition of travel restrictions - CETRA 2020 Organizing Committee has decided to further postpone the Conference. We held on for as long as we could wishing that things would return to some semblance of normality. However, it’s now clear that our Conference must be put back to next year. This was a very difficult decision, but, after consulting with numerous participants from all around the globe, we believe that it is the most responsible one.

We were very optimistic, hoping that the situation with COVID-19 will be much better in October, trying our best to organize CETRA 2020 and to bring our professional and scientific community together one more time. Regarding the number and quality of abstracts, auspices and sponsorships received, CETRA 2020 was on track to be one of our best CETRA conferences. However, the safety of the participants is our priority, and we have decided it would be prudent to postpone the CETRA 2020 Conference for the spring of 2021. At the same time, postponing the Conference for the next year provides the members of our Committees valuable time to completely dedicate themselves to the determination of damage caused by the disastrous earthquake that hit Zagreb in March.

The CETRA 2020 Conference will take place on the 20th and 21st of May 2021 at the same venue, Hotel Park Plaza Histria Pula, Croatia. As you can see, we have decided to keep the 2020 in the Conference name, not only to ensure the minimal visual intrusion and retain the virtual recognition of our event, but also to honor the people confronting this years’ many challenges. With the new CETRA Conference date, new deadlines for abstract and full paper submission are written in right column of the website.

For the authors that have already submitted their full paper or abstract:

Papers submitted for the CETRA are currently in the review process and authors will get feedback on their work and a decision letter as soon as possible.

If you have submitted your abstract, but not yet full paper, there is still plenty of time to do it. For the abstracts that are submitted and accepted for the conference, deadline for the full paper submission is by the 20th of February 2021.

We hope that this information reaches you in time to plan your agenda for the rest of the year. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding in these turbulent times and are looking forward to seeing you again.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Stjepan Lakusic

CETRA 2020 Conference Chairman

CETRA 2020 postponed until October 2020 due to COVID-19


In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the 6th International Conference on Road and Rail Infrastructure - CETRA 2020. The organizers’ main concern is to guarantee the health of everyone involved and ensure a high level of attendance from scientists and professionals related to road and rail infrastructure around the world.

CETRA 2020 will be posponed until October 2020. This will affect the deadlines for full paper submission, review and registrations on which you will be timely informed through e-mail and our website.

On the positive note, authors will have more time to develop their ideas and perhaps analyse the data even further. We are looking forward to seeing you at CETRA in October 2020.
