Call for Abstracts:

Joint ITE International and Texas District Annual Meeting and Exhibit

Deadline for Submissions: Tuesday, November 27

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and the ITE Texas District invite you to submit an abstract in support of the upcoming Joint ITE International and Texas District Annual Meeting and Exhibit. The program for the National Rural ITS Annual Conference will be integrated into this meeting.

This year’s theme – Transportation Transformed – recognizes the profound change that our industry is currently facing and will be moving forward. ITE seeks abstracts that address the broad range of issues that underlie transportation's transformative role in building vibrant, livable, and healthy communities. 

In developing your abstract, we encourage you to thoughtfully consider the theme and purpose of the meeting and shape your proposed presentation appropriately. An attendee needs to come away from your presentation with immediately applicable tools and/or skills or a clear vision how what you presented will shape the future of transportation. A list of meeting topics is included below.
