NEXTRANS Co-Hosts Reception at TRB
January 18, 2010
On January 10, 2010, the NEXTRANS Center co-hosted a successful reception at the 89th Annual Transportation Research Board Meeting in Washington, D.C. Sponsored by NEXTRANS, Purdue, and the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP), this year’s Purdue University Civil Engineering Reception enjoyed strong attendance, offering participants the opportunity to interact with transportation professionals, as well as NEXTRANS partners, faculty, and students.
The Center’s lively reception was just one of the many highlights from this year’s meeting. The Network Modeling Committee (ADB30), chaired by Center Director Srinivas Peeta, successfully unveiled a web site to facilitate more efficient information exchange (www.nextrans.org/ADB30); Kumares Sinha (JTRP Director and former NEXTRANS Executive Committee Member) was awarded the 2009 Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award for his outstanding leadership in transportation research and education; and a number of NEXTRANS investigators presented research in their areas of expertise.
Each year, the TRB Annual Meeting attracts more than 10,000 transportation professionals from around the world. With more than 3,000 presentations in nearly 600 sessions, the program addresses topics of interest to policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions. The 2010 spotlight theme was “Investing in Our Transportation Future – BOLD Ideas to Meet BIG Challenges.”
