Dear Open Transport community,

I will defend my PhD publicly on the 27th of September at 18:30 in 
Ghent. One of the most important parts of a public PhD defense is that 
of course the PhD can also be validated by external experts in the 
field. Regarding Open Transport, I trust these experts to be on this 
mailing list.

If you want to and can be there physically, please register here: 

If you cannot be there, but would love to ask a challenging question, 
please shoot your question on this mailing list or in a private reply. 
You can already read the current version of my dissertation (I still 
need to process some feedback by the internal reading committee) at 
https://phd.pietercolpaert.be. The most interesting chapters are 
probably going to be chapter 2, containing the rationale behind the 
research, and chapter 6, introducing the Linked Connections interface as 
a cost-efficient HTTP interface to publish public transport data.

Kind regards,

Pieter Colpaert
