This guide shows the Virginia Transportation Research Council's 2020 Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting Schedule.

Overview

Welcome to the Transportation Research Board's 99th Annual Meeting!

This year 27 VTRC scientists and research assistants, and 12 other VDOT employees are authors or co-authors of 44 presentations at TRB events/sessions, workshops, and committees, of which, 19 are poster presentations. In addition, 7 VTRC personnel and 5 other VDOT personnel will preside at 15 events/sessions, workshops, receptions, committees, and subcommittees. Many more VTRC and other VDOT employees will participate at TRB as active members and officers of committees and other working groups. This page lists presenters for conference goers interested in attending sessions or interested the topics presented. 

2020 Interactive Program 


Big Changes This Year! New Way to Access TRB Annual Meeting Content​

TRB is revising the way it provides its Annual Meeting content to attendees and sponsors. Rather than produce separate products (AM Online and the Compendium of Papers), the following information will be made available on the Online Interactive Program website for the 2020 Annual Meeting:

• “Metadata” for all papers presented at the Annual Meeting will be provided when the Online Interactive Program goes live. “Metadata” includes author names and affiliations, paper title, subjects, and abstract.
• Poster presentations will be provided at the end of the meeting (this is weeks faster than provided previously).
• Power Point presentations (where permitted by the presenter) will be provided at the end of the meeting (this previously took 2-3 months).
 

The above material will be available only to registrants for the 2020 Annual Meeting and employees of TRB’s year-round sponsors until the Fall of 2020 when the Online Interactive Program for the 2021 Annual Meeting goes live. At that time, the 2020 Annual Meeting Online Interactive program, with the information listed above, will be archived on TRB’s website and made available to anyone with a MyTRB account. This process will be repeated each year so that sponsors and Annual Meeting registrants will have exclusive access to the most recent Annual Meeting’s materials for several months, after which the material will be more widely available to facilitate dissemination of information and awareness of the breadth of content presented at the TRB Annual Meeting.

For the 2020 Annual Meeting, this new approach does not continue the practice of providing full papers presented at the Annual Meeting. This is the result of concerns expressed for years by authors that papers that were accepted for presentation at the Annual Meeting but rejected for publication in the TRR Journal were being rejected for publication in other journals on the basis that inclusion in AM Online constituted previous publication. VDOT Employees seeking access to 2020 Annual Meeting content should contact the VTRC Research Library directly if with questions.
