Transportation Engineering Research Symposium

It is said that "great minds think alike." At the Larson Transportation Institute, we believe great minds should come together to share knowledge for the greater good. Since 1968, the Institute has been bringing together top faculty and enterprising students from across the University and public and private stakeholders to address critical transportation-related issues.

As the Institute looks forward to the next 50 years, Penn State students and faculty members involved with transportation-related research across the University are invited to attend the Institute's Inaugural Transportation Engineering Research Symposium, scheduled from 1:00 to 5:00 PM on Thursday, September 20, 2018. Held in an open-house format, at 189 Energy and the Environment Laboratory, University Park, the symposium is designed to allow attendees to come and go as they please.

Anticipated topics include: 

  • Autonomous and connected vehicles
  • Advanced vehicle technologies
  • Bridge or pavement design
  • Construction materials
  • Human factors
  • Infrastructure asset management
  • Nondestructive testing
  • Non-motorized transportation
  • Public transportation
  • Rail transportation
  • Structural health monitoring
  • Traffic operations
  • Transportation planning
  • Transportation policy
  • Transportation system performance
  • Traffic safety

Interested in presenting?

Submit your 250-word (or less) abstract by August 15, to Steve Williams at smw5@psu.edu.

All selected presenters will be required to keep their presentations brief, with a maximum of 10 minutes allotted for each. Only completed or nearly-completed Penn State research related to transportation will be considered.
