Call for Abstracts

DEADLINE: December 21, 2018

The 2019 Annual Meeting technical program will include 8-10 Tracks of up to four simultaneous sessions, and up to four presentations or roundtable discussion in each session. These sessions will be supplemented by poster sessions, and four technical tours highlighting transportation projects in the Monterey area.

As transportation professionals, we understand transportation is going through a major transformation that involves many challenges as well as opportunities, including connected and autonomous vehicles, sustainable and resilient transportation infrastructure, traffic congestion, active transportation, Vision Zero safety initiatives and projects, traffic operations, and continuing deterioration of existing transportation infrastructure. The 2019 Local Arrangement Committee (LAC) is seeking papers that address these issues and ideas that demonstrate cost-effective and innovative solutions. We hope that you will take this opportunity to share your research and case studies with other professionals on challenges and recent advances in transportation.

Abstracts are encouraged in the following general topic areas. Although, other topic areas of interest to our membership are welcome as well.

  • Context Sensitive Solutions and Complete Streets
