Call for Posters: Environmental Analysis in Transportation
The Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Environmental Analysis in Transportation (ADC10) is sending this request out inviting you to submit your work as part of an environmental poster session at TRB’s 2017 annual meeting in Washington, DC this coming January. Please submit your abstract for consideration for presentation at the TRB Annual Meeting, Environmental Analysis in Transportation (ADC10) poster session, which will emphasize environmental process best practices, environmental streamlining applications, impacts assessment and documentation methods used, technical approaches employed during NEPA or similar environmental processes, technical approaches used in linking planning and NEPA, regulatory compliance and permitting approaches, successful mitigation and enhancement applications, environmental stewardship examples, lessons learned and any other environmental aspects of project development. This poster session and the process used to apply for participation is separate from the traditional peer-reviewed paper process utilized by TRB, and is designed to promote more project-specific examples of innovative and/or successful environmental practices in transportation. Please note that only posters meeting these general criteria or similar environmental process project examples will be considered by this committee.
Our committee is now accepting abstracts for presentation at poster sessions. Abstracts must be no more than 500 words, and should contain the following: (1) full title; (2) primary/secondary presenter name(s) with complete contact information (mailing address, phone, fax, e-mail); (3) a concise statement of the project or study objective; (4) notable practices, approaches or lessons learned; (5) current or anticipated results or outcomes; (6) significance and implications of the results or outcomes; and, if applicable, (7) recommendations for future research. Abstracts must be submitted electronically no later than Thursday, September 15, 2016.
Following review of all abstracts, the committee will notify primary authors of their selection status on or about Saturday, October 1, 2016. Applicants whose abstracts are accepted for presentation during a poster session must provide a draft mock-up of the poster for general comment by no later than Friday, December 2, 2016, although a final submittal is not necessary until the actual date of the poster session. Further information about guidance for the poster sessions is available at http://www.trb.org/AnnualMeeting/EventDevelopment.aspx[trb.org]. Note: Abstracts received after the September 15 deadline will not be included in the proceedings and will not be scheduled for poster presentation at the annual meeting.
Our committee has found these poster sessions offer a great opportunity for interaction and a showcase for innovative ideas and projects in environmental analysis. Our poster sessions at past annual meetings were great successes, and the committee will continue poster sessions as an annual event to complement our paper review and presentation process. Don’t miss this opportunity to show your work to thousands of other transportation professionals! If you are selected to present a poster at the meeting in January, please be available to register for the conference and to come to Washington, D.C. to provide further details on the poster and answer any questions that attendees may have.
Please submit your abstracts and mock-ups to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include the words “TRB ADC10 Poster Session Application” in the subject line of all emails.
