The spotlight theme for the 2010 TRB 89th Annual Meeting, January 10-14, 2010, in Washington, D.C., is Investing in Our Transportation Future-Bold Ideas to Meet Big Challenges. The theme recognizes that a robust and efficient transportation system is necessary in order for the nation to successfully meet the economic, environmental, and security challenges that lie ahead. Spotlight sessions and workshops are expected to explore key issues and challenges such as revamping transportation finance for the 21st century; attaining zero fatalities in transportation; achieving climate change and energy security targets by 2050; enhancing and preserving the nation's transportation infrastructure; and eliminating congestion as we know it.
In addition to the general calls for papers produced by many of TRB's standing committees, authors are invited to submit papers related to the upcoming Annual Meeting's spotlight theme. This year, papers will be accepted only in PDF format. All papers must be submitted via the TRB's Paper Submission website prior to 11:59 p.m. EDT Saturday, August 1, 2009.
