Transport hubs are nerve
centers of our modern mobile society and rapidly become economic centers – the
new "Airport Cities" are remarkable examples.

Where many people come together information and knowledge is
shared and new ideas are created, and so airports, train stations, motorway

The international conference REAL CORP 008 focuses on these

    hubs and what further improvement is needed?

    environmental impacts be dealt with?
