Abstracts are due January 14, 2015.
This conference will be held one week before the TRB Planning Applications conference, so
I know this is likely to cause low interest in this. Nonetheless, I hope that some
transportation and especially CTPP data users will be able to participate in this
conference. Several MPOs participated last time and we had a nice lunch together. It is
highly unlikely that I can attend because of travel budget limitations.
I encourage you to consider submitting an abstract. It is always good to document the
transportation applications of ACS to a non-transportation audience, and to get the
attention of Census Bureau staff, even if they might have to participate via web!
