2023 TRB Presentations

Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) provides leadership in transportation improvements and innovation through trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based information exchange, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation. For example, committees, researchers, and staff are currently focused on advancing resilient infrastructure, exploring transformational technology, and caring for the public’s health and safety. The TRB Annual Meeting is the largest global gathering of transportation professionals and researchers with a focus on innovative solutions for all modes of transportation.

The TRB’s 102nd Annual Meeting was held in person January 8-12, 2023 in Washington, D.C. The event attracted thousands of transportation professionals from around the world.

This year’s meeting program covered all transportation modes, with sessions and workshops addressing topics of interest to policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions.

A number of sessions and workshops focused on the spotlight theme for the 2023 meeting: Rejuvenation Out of Disruption: Envisioning a Transportation System for a Dynamic Future

ATI was a bronze sponsor of this year’s meeting and researchers from the Alabama Transportation Institute had a strong presence at the 2023 conference in presentations and poster sessions.

ATI researchers also participated heavily in TRB Standing Committees. Almost all serve as a member or friend on several of the various committees.
