The Transportation Research Board (TRB) 93rd Annual Meeting was held in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, and Washington Hilton hotels. The information-packed program attracted nearly 12,000 transportation professionals from around the world to Washington, D.C., January 12-16, 2014.
The TRB Annual Meeting program covered all transportation modes, with more than 4,500 presentations in nearly 800 sessions and workshops addressing topics of interest to all attendees—policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions.
The spotlight theme for the 2014 TRB Annual Meeting was Celebrating Our Legacy, Anticipating Our Future. More than 30 sessions and workshops focused on this theme, which reflects the last year of the Annual Meeting at the Connecticut Avenue hotels, where it has been for nearly 60 years, and the move to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in 2015. These spotlight theme sessions were supplemented by 15 to 25 sessions and workshops on each of the following critical transportation issues: performance measurement, automated driving and connected vehicles, extreme weather events, and big data.
Annual Meeting registrants receive complimentary use of TRB Annual Meeting Online, a collection of information resources from the 93rd Annual Meeting. The Compendium of Papers is now available with online access to more than 2,900 papers. Viewable slides and posters of the more than 3,300 program presentations from the Annual Meeting are now available.
||The complete Annual Meeting program is available as a Mobile App for iOS (iPhone & iPad) and Android devices. This FREE app is provided with support from PTV Group. Registered attendees have access to the schedule of events, program participants, floor plans, exhibitors, and more. You may search for events chronologically or by subject area, program participant name, committee, and event type and other features. Debuted for the TRB 92nd Annual Meeting, the Mobile App was an instant success. You can use the TRB “resident” Mobile App without Internet access after downloading the application because all the data is stored on your mobile device.
If you have previously used the Annual Meeting Interactive Program to create a personalized program, there is currently no way to connect 'My Program' in the Interactive Program with 'My TRB' in the Mobile App. We hope to add this as a feature in the future, however, creating a personalized 'My TRB' program in the Mobile App is an easy and fast process.
The TRB Annual Meeting Mobile App is available only to full meeting registrants with completed records by using the email address used to register for the Annual Meeting. If you are unable to download the Mobile App and believe you have registered, contact the registration staff at TRB@JSpargo.com. To download the TRB Annual Meeting Mobile App, search “TRB 2014” in the App Store and Google Play, or click the button to the left using your mobile device.
The schedule of FREE Annual Meeting Tutorials is now available. Paper authors, reviewers, session organizers, and others should visit this page to see the schedule of upcoming TRB Tutorial Webinars and recordings of previous webinars.
||The Interactive Exhibits Search is available to assist you in deciding which exhibitors to visit during the TRB 93rd Annual Meeting. Search for exhibiting organizations by name or subject category, select the ones that you want to visit, then print the exhibit hall floor plan.
The theme of the TRB 94th Annual Meeting is “Corridors to the Future: Transportation and Technology.”
