Call for Poster Session Presentations


Austin is leading the challenge in tuning into the future of transportation. The 2016 WTS Annual Conference, Tune in to the Future of Transportation, will consider and share personal and professional development challenges and opportunities, discovery and review of new technologies and the changes in supply and demand that may revolutionize how we utilize, access, fund and develop our transportation network. 2015 has seen the first testing of autonomous vehicles and trucks within the U.S., the evolution of alternative travel options with changes to the transportation sharing economy, and continued discussions on how we can fund our next generation of transportation projects, improvements and maintenance. These future and continuing challenges for enhancing mobility and choices will be explored through the attached conference tracks.

If you are involved in the cutting edge of new technologies, tools, policies and options, and are leading the ‘future of transportation,’ we want to hear from you. Please consider sharing your insights and solutions in a poster presentation at the 2016 WTS Annual Conference in Austin, Texas, May 2016.
