ODU Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty and staff present 12 research papers at the 2013 TRB Annual Meeting

ODU Transportation Research Institute faculty participated in the 92nd Annual Transportation Research Board (TRB) held in January in Washington, D.C. The presenters included Dr. Asad Khattak, Dr. Mecit Cetin, Dr. ManWo Ng, Dr. Michael Robinson, Dr. Xin Wang, and several graduate students. ODU faculty, staff and students presented 12 research papers/posters, reflecting collaborations between various ODU entities, e.g., Transportation Research Institute and Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center, and other universities. At the conference, the Fifth Annual Lunch for related faculty, researchers, students and transportation partners was held at the Lebanese Taverna, with participation from colleagues at various universities, Virginia Department of Transportation, and the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The TRB Annual Meeting covered all transportation modes, with thousands of presentations on a diverse set of transportation topics. The TRB 92nd Annual Meeting attracted nearly 11,000 transportation professionals from around the world to Washington, D.C., in January, 2013 at the Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, and Hilton Washington Hotels. ODU's Dr. Khattak co-chaired the Advanced Traveler Information Systems sub-committee meeting. ODU faculty, staff, and students presented the following papers and posters on transportation planning and operations.
