Another Call for Posters. This time for the road ecology folks.
Committee on Ecology and Transportation (ADC30) ® Call for Posters for the TRB 2017 Annual Meeting
The Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Ecology and Transportation (ADC30) invites submissions of 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, Ecology and Transportation (ADC30) poster session, that will emphasize procedural and technological best practices, streamlined regulatory applications, impact assessment and documentation methods, technical approaches employed during resource assessment and impact analysis or similar environmental processes, technical approaches used for integrating natural resource and transportation planning, novel regulatory compliance and permitting approaches, successful mitigation and enhancement applications, environmental stewardship, lessons learned and any other ecological 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. Posters celebrating program-level ecological and academic accomplishments and ongoing activities will also be considered. Please note that the top 20 posters meeting these general criteria will be considered by the 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 Please follow the Suggestions from Poster Authors, Viewers, and Other Conferences section of the 2010 “Meet the Author Poster Session Guidelines” available on the TRB website for full details and instructions. 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 an exquisite opportunity for interaction and a showcase for innovative ideas, projects, and programs that feature ecological analysis and stewardship. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your work to thousands of other transportation professionals! If you are selected to present a poster at the meeting in January, please make yourself or a colleague available to register for the conference in Washington, D.C and accompany your display to interact with conference attendees.
Please submit your abstracts and mock-ups to Alevy@vhb.com. Please be sure to include the words “TRB ADC30 Poster Session Application” in the subject line of all related emails.
