The Transportation Economics Committee (ABE 20) of the TRB is calling for posters showcasing “Use of Economic Analysis In Transportation Project Selection” at the 2018 TRB Annual Meeting on January 7-11, 2018, in Washington, DC. This session will provide a unique opportunity to share with an international audience your experience in using economic analysis to help with transportation project selection.
Poster Session Purpose:
The Poster Session is designed to highlight how economic analysis (such as benefit cost analysis, life cycle cost analysis, etc.) was used to help with project selection. The objective is to share and discuss research findings and case studies that identify best practices, examine use of techniques to evaluate difficult concepts (such as livability or others), and promote the use of economic analysis in the decision making process. This could be for the selection of a specific project, choosing among alternatives, selecting multiple projects as part of a program, or all of the above.
About the Poster Session:
The Poster Session is scheduled for a 1.75-hour period on one day of the TRB Annual Meeting, January 7-11, 2018.
The template for poster proposal is located in the committee website: http://www.transportationeconomics.org/ under announcement.
