ITS Students, Faculty, and Researchers Present at TRB

WINTER 2013 -- UC Berkeley transportation engineering and planning students, faculty, and researchers presented more than 80 papers and posters at the Transportation Research Board's 92nd Annual Meeting, held in Washington D.C. earlier this month.

TRB is one of six major divisions of the National Research Council, which serves as an independent adviser to the federal government and others on scientific and technical questions of national importance. More than 11,000 transportation professions from around the world attend the organization's annual meeting.

Following is a list of UC Berkeley participants and their papers or posters in the order in which they were presented. Although ITS researchers frequently collaborate with researchers from other institutions and agencies, for brevity's sake only the names of Berkeley researchers are included in each listing.
