NATMEC 2006 Improving Traffic Monitoring Data for Transportation
Decision-making is encouraging interested individuals to submit
abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 2006 conference in
Minneapolis, June 4-7, 2006. The conference will be a forum for
exchange and dissemination of information related to the collection,
management, and use of monitored traffic data in all applications.
The conference planning committee has developed a set of sessions based
on systematic input from traffic professionals and from past conference
participants. A listing of the proposed sessions and descriptions
along with the conference details can be found at
http://www.trb.org/conferences/natmec/sessions.pdf. The planning
committee is specifically seeking participation in these sessions and
the submission process will ask you to choose a session. Abstracts on
other topics will also be considered for inclusion in the conference
You will need to prepare and abstract in file, using Word or similar
software. Submit abstracts to
http://www.trb.org/submissions/default.asp?event=188. After logging in
you will need to enter the software as an Author and then click on

and to identify which session best fits you submittal. After completing
this screen you will be given another screen and asked to upload your
word processing file with the abstract. You MUST upload a file with the

changed and we apologize for this redundancy.

convey the material that will be presented and relevance to the session

For now I am done with the paper review assignments. The Urban Data
Committee has 32 papers on its plate while I am brokering a review of
another 9 papers on health and obesity with 3 other committees. Of our
32 papers about 22 were dealing with travel times/speed or a related
aspect. Modeling real time travel time from various types of probe
devices like GPS units and cell phones seems to be the hot topic area.
In fact we had 6 or 7 papers dealing with cell phones as probes.
According to TRB deadlines reviewers have until September 15th to get
their reviews back but PLEASE do not wait that long. Finally, if you did
not get any papers to review and you think you should have please let me
