About the Conference

CTS is excited to announce some changes to our largest annual event! Starting this year, the Research Conference will be a one-day event held in the fall on the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis.

The conference convenes researchers and practitioners from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest to highlight new learning, emerging ideas, and the latest innovations in transportation. Attendees will learn about research findings, implementation efforts, and engagement activities related to a variety of transportation topics.


The conference audience consists of individuals from multiple disciplines and organizations involved in transportation, including policymakers and practitioners from state, regional, and local government; private sector consultants, shippers, carriers, and providers; and faculty, students, and staff from the University of Minnesota and other educational institutions.
