JOINT CALL FOR POSTER DISPLAYS

2015 TRB ANNUAL MEETING

January 11-15, 2015 Washington, D.C.
The TRB Congestion Pricing Committee (ABE25) and TRB Managed Lanes Committee (AHB35) invite all interested parties to submit applications for a poster session display at the TRB Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. This session will provide a unique opportunity to interact with an international audience in sharing experiences of your projects and research that feature transportation pricing and/or managed lanes.

Session Purpose
The Joint Poster Session will highlight new research and lessons learned in planning, implementing and operating congestion pricing and managed lane projects. Our objective is to share and discuss research findings and case studies that identify best practices, examine use of new technologies, and build awareness of the challenges that underlie successful projects.

While all relevant abstracts will be considered, for 2015, the committees are especially seeking papers that address the following topics:

  • Corridors to the Future: Transportation and Technology
  • Congestion Pricing and Value-Of-Time, Trip Reliability and Departure Time Flexibility
  • Impact of Managed Lanes on Overall Corridor Performance

 

About the Poster Session
The Poster Session is scheduled for a 1.75-hour period on one day of the January 2015 Annual Meeting. Information on preparation of posters and the setup of poster stations in 2012 can be found at:
