Attending the conference?

The National Institute for Transportation and Communities, or NITC, program makes its presence known on the biggest stage for transportation research: the annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies. The conference runs Jan. 10-14 in Washington, D.C.

Researchers at NITC-affiliated campuses will present 89 papers at the conference, a record for the Portland State University-based university transportation center, founded in 2006. The NITC program is led by TREC at Portland State University, with partners University of Oregon, Oregon Institute of Technology, University of Utah and University of South Florida.

To present at the conference, researchers submit full research papers for peer review. Around half of the submitted papers are accepted for presentation.

Researchers from NITC campuses will present their work in 22 lectern sessions, three workshops and 64 in poster sessions. Among lead authors on papers being presented, Portland State has 27, followed by Utah with 18, South Florida with 12 and Oregon with one.

Portland State students continue to distinguish themselves in national transportation research circles. This year, Portland State students were lead author on 14 papers -- more than half the university's total. Portland State students are listed 26 times as lead or coauthor on papers being presented.

The TRB annual meeting, the preeminent national conference for transportation researchers, takes place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington. Around 12,000 people are expected to attend.
