Apologies for the cross-posting.
Attached please find an announcement for call for posters for the 2016 TRB.
The Task Force on "Understanding New Directions for the National Household Travel
Survey" (ABJ45T) is calling for posters showcasing innovative uses of the National
Household Travel Survey (NHTS) for presentation at the Transportation Research Board's
95th Annual Meeting on January 10-14, 2016, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center,
in Washington, D.C.
We are particularly (but not uniquely) interested in research, case studies and analyses
that use the NHTS (possibly in combination with other large datasets):
* to understand travel of disadvantaged groups; or
* to analyze transit or active transportation modes; or
* to analyze salient environmental or energy issues; or
* to characterize rural trips; or
* to better understand traffic safety; or
* to analyze public health topics related to transportation; or
* for disaster management; or more generally
* to answer questions of interest to MPOs, DOTs, and other agencies.
The objective of this poster session is to bring together planners, analysts, policy
makers, and potential users of NHTS data to share / learn about innovative applications of
the NHTS. For guidelines on how to present a poster effectively, see
Please email a poster outline consisting of a 200 to 300 words abstract with a title and
authors' contact information to

confirm their participation by Friday, September 25, 2015; at least one author of each
