International Conference on Transport & Health
MINETA Transportation Institute at San Jose State University
San Jose, California - USA
13-15 June 2016
(Camp ICTH: 12 June 2016)
NOT JUST FOR RESEARCHERS. PRACTITIONERS, POLICY-MAKERS AND STUDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT. ICTH IS FOCUSED ON BRINGING TOGETHER SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE AND REAL-WORLD APPLICATION. THIS IS ONLY POSSIBLE, IF YOU'RE WILLING TO TAKE A RISK AND SUBMIT YOUR INNOVATIVE IDEAS. WHAT THE HECK, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN!
Each abstract for presentation at the International Conference on Transport & Health (ICTH) will go through a formal peer-review and scoring process. Final abstract scores are calculated as the average of three (3) individual peer-reviewer assessments. Scientific/research abstracts and practitioner/policy/case study abstracts will be assessed separately. Due to the interactive nature of the conference with regard to team assignments and scheduling, each author indicating a preference for an oral presentation will be limited to one (1) standard oral and one (1) pecha kucha presentation. There is no limit on the number of poster presentations. Only the highest scoring abstracts will be invited to present at the conference.
Abstract Submission Guidelines
Authors will be asked to select and submit an abstract in their preferred presentation format:•Standard Oral (20 Minutes)
•Pecha Kucha - An oral presentation of 20 slides for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). This is a fast-paced and FUN alternative! Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PechaKucha for details.
•Poster - Presentation and judging will be during the lunch break on the day assigned to each author
The author's presentation preference will be taken into consideration along with recommendations received by each of the three peer-reviewers. Final decisions with regard to presentation format are at the discretion of the ICTH Programme Committee.
