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 94th Annual Meeting on January 11-15, 2015, in Washington DC.
We are particularly (but not uniquely) interested in research, case studies and analyses that use the NHTS:

in combination with other large, publically-available datasets; or
to understand and illustrate travel patterns using visualization and animation; or
to identify and characterize long-distance and rural trips; or
to better understand traffic safety & more broadly public health topics related to transportation; or
for disaster management; or
to analyze transit or active transportation modes; or
to analyze salient environmental or energy issues; or
to answer questions of interest to MPOs.

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 onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/archive/Guidelines/PosterPresenters.pdf.
Please email a poster outline consisting of a 200 to 300 words abstract with a title and authors’ contact information to abj45tposterstrb2015@gmail.com by September 5, 2014.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by Friday, September 19, 2014 and will be asked to confirm their participation by Friday, September 26, 2014; at least one author of each selected poster will need to attend the poster session in person. Sales presentations on products or services will not be considered.
This call is outside the usual TRB website and paper review system.  Proposals do not need to be submitted using the on-line system and no paper is required to participate in this poster session. For questions, email saphores@uci.edu or viswanathank@cdmsmith.com
