97th Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board, January 7-11, 2018
Doctoral Research in Transport Modeling and Traveler Behavior
Sunday, January 7, 2018, 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.
Announcement and Call for Submissions (due Monday, October 2nd, 2017)
At this workshop, PhD students conducting research in transportation modeling or traveler behavior are invited to present their work and discuss issues and questions they encountered. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Section on Travel Analysis Methods (ADB00), including the Transportation Network Modeling Committee (ADB30), the Transportation Demand Forecasting Committee (ADB40), the Traveler Behavior and Values Committee (ADB10), the Effects of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on Traveler Choices Committee (ADB20) and the Transportation Planning Applications Committee (ADB50). The workshop is also co-sponsored by the Traffic Flow Theory Committee (AHB45). The workshop will be held on Sunday Afternoon (January 7, 2018) at the 97th Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board in Washington, DC. Reports of recently completed, or nearly completed, PhD dissertations and research-in-advanced-stages are welcome.
Individuals who wish to present their research need to submit a 500-800 word summary of their research including the title and complete author information, along with a letter of nomination from their faculty supervisor. The letter of the supervisor should explain the significance of the contribution and clearly state the anticipated graduation date. Please send these documents in Word or PDF format both to Patricia Mokhtarian, Georgia Institute of Technology, at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and to Rolf Moeckel, Technical University of Munich, at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.The deadline for submission of entries is Monday, October 2, 2017.
Those who have presented their dissertation research at this session in previous Annual Meetings of the Transportation Research Board are not eligible to submit entries. Please note that there is a separate Doctoral Dissertation Research session devoted to the field of Transportation Operations and Control. Work that falls primarily in that domain should be submitted there. The workshop on Transportation Operations and Control is organized by Dr. Michael Knodler from the University of Massachusetts.
The selection of presentations for inclusion in the program will be based on the total number of submissions received, whether the work is based on completed or in-progress research, and whether papers based on the dissertation research have been accepted for presentation in other lectern or poster sessions of the Annual Meeting. All submissions will be reviewed, and notifications regarding acceptance will be sent by mid-October. Accepted presentations will be listed by title and author in the Annual Meeting Program. The best presentation(s) will be identified and recognized with a certificate at the meeting of the Committee on Transportation Network Modeling (ADB30).
