The spotlight theme for the 2016 TRB Annual Meeting is Research Convergence for a Multi-Modal Future. Spotlight sessions, workshops, and discussions at the meeting will highlight the critical role played by transportation research and its deployment in enhancing the variety, efficiency, and sustainability of transportation options for both freight and people. The information-packed program is expected to attract more than 12,000 transportation professionals from around the world.

In addition to the general calls for papers produced by many of TRB’s standing committees, authors are invited to submit papers related to the spotlight theme or on other topics of interest to the TRB community.

The Annual Meeting Resource Pages include information on key dates, preparing papers for peer review and presentation at the meeting, writing papers for the TRR, the general submission process, and more. Authors are advised to consult documents included on the Resource Pages prior to writing their papers to ensure that they adhere to the latest guidelines. TRB reserves the right to reject papers that do not adhere to the guidelines.

Authors of submitted papers will be notified by late October 2015, regarding the acceptance or rejection of their papers for presentation at the 2016 TRB Annual Meeting.
