I am sure you need no reminder but it officially TRB paper review
season. TRB has just opened the software and chairs can begin passing
out review assignments. Well, Tom did asked me to wait until after
today but I did notice that the software has been opened and is
functional. We currently have 34 papers most of them around 22 have
something to do with travel time or speed. Of those it looks like 8-9
of the papers are directly tied to using cell phone technology for
collecting data. Some of the cell phone papers are dealing with speed
while others are dealing with more generic O-D issues. Needless to say
the reviews will not be evenly distributed and as in past years I will
have to reach far beyond the committee membership to assure that we have
the best pool of reviewers given the papers' subject areas.
While you are waiting for your paper assignments, do not forget about
the strategic plan for the committee that Catherine Lawson is working
on. here is the link to the draft that is in our mail list archives.
please pay special attention to the "REVIEW OF PREVIOUSLY IDENTIFIED
AREAS OF INTEREST" and provide comments back to Catherine.
