Description Charles University in Prague and Masaryk University in Brno have been organising a one-day international conference held in Prague biennially. In the previous two conference years, it was devoted first to competition in passenger railways in CEE countries (in 2014) and then to HSR in CEE countries (in 2016). This year conference took place on the 25th May 2018 at the Faculty of Social Sciences (Charles University in Prague) and was dedicated to long-distance passenger transport. The aim of the conference was to document changes that the long-distance market has undergone especially in Central Europe due to increasing mobility, policy challenges, infrastructure investment and service innovations and to analyse its impact on national and European transport markets. The conference was divided into three sessions. The first one was focused on British, French and Central European experience, the second session to Swedish, Italian and Swiss case and finally the third to the detailed Polish and Slovak experience.
