The conference acts as a forum for researchers and practitioners from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest to share their research findings in a variety of transportation-related areas. Concurrent sessions are focused in four categories that match the Center’s research emphasis areas—Transportation Safety and Traffic Flow, Transportation Infrastructure, Transportation and the Economy, and Transportation Planning and the Environment—with a fifth category covering Education and Outreach issues.


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.
