TRB is sponsoring the 10th University Transportation Center (UTC) Spotlight Conference on Bicycles and Pedestrians on December 1-2, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The conference will focus on the subject of bike and pedestrian safety, encompassing four comprehensive areas: networks and connectivity, data needs, tools to address bike and pedestrian safety, and equity considerations. Submit abstracts by August 9, 2016.
The event will be designed to identify critical issues associated with bike and pedestrian safety that will challenge state and local transportation agencies; identify on-going research being conducted by the UTCs and other institutions; identify gaps that may exist in the current research; and promote synergies among academic, government, and private industry in meeting the challenges of bike and pedestrian safety.
