TRB 92nd Annual Meeting

01 / 13 / 2013

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) 92nd Annual Meeting will be held in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, and Washington Hilton hotels. The information-packed program will attract more than 11,000 transportation professionals from around the world to Washington, D.C., January 13-17, 2013.

The TRB Annual Meeting program covers all transportation modes, with more than 4,000 presentations in nearly 650 sessions and workshops addressing topics of interest to all attendees—policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions. A number of sessions and workshops will address the spotlight theme for 2013: Deploying Transportation Research – Doing Things Smarter, Better, Faster.

This year, one of the Calls for Papers is called Interactions Between Traffic Flow Modeling and BRT Systems, which is described as:

This call seeks to elicit papers that either: (i) investigate the interactions between traffic flow and bus rapid transit system, (ii) analyze innovative bus rapid transit initiatives, (iii) test and evaluate performance of bus transit systems under different scenarios by simulation, (iv) propose models of bus transit lines, (v) investigate dynamic control that optimize bus transit system, (vi) propose innovative modeling framework to better understand bus lane functioning and identify conditions for discrepancies.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Transit operation monitoring, control and management; Practical experience with BRT systems; Interaction between bus and traffic flow; Deployment on unconventional control methods; Dynamic traffic signal control; Computer aided method for bus transit system; Bus lanes and bus priority operation; Traffic flow theory network applications; Bus transit lines modeling.
