TRB Calls for Posters on Landscape and Environmental Design

Washington, D.C.

The Transportation Research Board Standing Committee on Landscape and Environmental Design (AFB40) is calling for submissions of abstracts as part of a landscape and environmental design poster session at TRB's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., January 12-16, 2020.

For consideration, TRB emphasizes the following topics as they relate to transportation and environmental design:
• Energy and sustainability - design, policies, and practices to protect the planet.
• Policy needs related to the built environment that should be developed prior to full adoption of autonomous vehicle technology.
• Resilience and security-preparing for floods, fires, storms, and sea level rise.
• Transformational technologies that will change how transportation environments should be retrofitted or rebuilt.
• Design to serve growing and shifting populations.

AFB40 also welcomes completed and on-going projects such as green streets, roadsides for pollinators, complete streets, transportation design impacts on main streets and landscape designs to safeguard the public.

Applications must include name, organization, contact information, and a brief abstract description of the research and information to be presented.

The deadline for submissions is September 16, 2019.

For questions and application information, please contact Robert LaRoche: (207) 522-0082.
