Previous VTTI Conferences

Pavement Evaluation 2019

Date: September 17-20, 2019

This conference built on accomplishments of previous conferences (held in 2002, 2010, and 2014) by combining the annual Road Profiler Users’ Group meeting with discussions and presentations from other disciplines of non-destructive pavement evaluation. In addition to profiling, other topics of interest included texture and friction measurement, tire-pavement noise, ground penetrating radar (GPR), video distress rating, and structural testing. The conference welcomed representatives from government transportation agencies, academia and private industry.

Seventh International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research

Date: August 28-30, 2018

The National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence (NSTSCE) at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) hosted the Seventh International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research (NDRS 2018) in Blacksburg, Virginia on August 28-30, 2018.

10th International Conference on Managing Fatigue

Date: March 20-23, 2017

This biennial event began in 1993, in Fremantle, Australia. Though primarily held in Australia, the conference has made past visits to the US: 2005 in Seattle and 2009 in Boston. We were happy to host this conference for its 10th installment in San Diego, California. While the main emphasis of the meeting has always been on fatigue in transportation, other sectors such as natural resources, mining, healthcare, and the military have been strongly represented. The cross-fertilization of research and programs has been a particular strength of our meetings in the past and was again in 2017.

Fifth International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research

Date: August 30 - September 1, 2016

The National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence (NSTSCE) at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) hosted the Fifth International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia on August 30-31, 2016, with Motorcycle Research and Technology Workshop and a WTS forum following on September 1.

Virginia Unmanned Systems Commission - Education & Workforce Development Summit

Date: March 14-15, 2016

9th International Conference on Managing Pavement Assets

Date: May 18-21, 2015

The 9th International Conference on Managing Pavement Assets (ICMPA9) took place in the Washington, DC metropolitan area from May 18-21, 2015. The conference brought together pavement design and management engineers, companies specialized in providing pavement management services and data collection, researchers and specialists on asset/pavement management, general pavement/road engineers, planners dealing with the development of public works programs, and academics specializing in pavement design, analysis and management. The conference aimed to define the requirements for the "next generation" of pavement management tools need and to that effect it builds upon the following theme: "moving pavement management beyond the short-term: embracing innovation and addressing sustainability, accountability, and improved performance."

Pavement Evaluation 2014

Date: September 15-18, 2014

Originally held in 2002, this conference built on the previous conference's accomplishments by combining the annual Road Profiler Users' Group meeting with discussions and presentations from other disciplines of non-destructive pavement evaluation. In addition to profiling, other topics of interest included texture and friction measurement, tire-pavement noise, ground penetrating radar (GPR), video distress rating, and structural testing. The conference welcomed representatives from government transportation agencies, academia, and private industry. It benefited end-users, operators, researchers, construction and design engineers, and manufacturers who have an interest in the equipment, methods, and use of non-destructive pavement evaluation. It was also highly recommended for consultants, contractors, and construction equipment developers who are in the business of meeting performance requirements for traveled surfaces.

Fourth International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research

Date: August 25-28, 2014

The National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence (NSTSCE) at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute hosted the Fourth International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia.

The two-day international symposium (preceded and followed by full-day workshops on Monday, 8/25 and Thursday, 8/28) gathered experts in the field of naturalistic driving research to discuss a wide range of topics.

Conference on Agent-Based Modeling in Transportation Planning and Operations

Date: September 30 - October 3, 2013

Conference objectives were to present the current state of the art/science in agent-based modeling in transportation; provide the lessons learned from the current research efforts in this field; and define where the future lies in this type of modeling effort and what steps and research agenda need to be taken to ensure its success.

Senior Mobility Awareness Symposium

Date: December 6, 2012

This information-packed symposium, sponsored by the National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, gathered professionals and members of the community for a dialogue about issues facing aging drivers, older driver safety, and transportation alternatives with the goal of presenting usable, practical information that will enhance awareness and facilitate development of viable solutions for addressing the changing transportation needs of older adults living in the New River Valley area of Virginia.

Virginia Pavement Recycling Conference

Date: November 2627, 2012

The Virginia Pavement Recycling Conference provided a day and a half of the latest information about the pavement recycling disciplines of cold in-place recycling (CIR), cold central-plant recycling (CCPR), and full-depth reclamation (FDR) from industry experts across the U.S. The conference included topics such as: an overview of pavement recycling, implementing a pavement recycling program within a state agency, project selection, pavement design, laboratory mix design, quality assurance testing, ongoing research, and lessons learned. Attendees came away with a better understanding of pavement recycling and a greater appreciation for where these techniques can be implemented successfully. The end goal of the conference was to move Virginia's pavement recycling program forward by discussing the latest practices from across the United States.

7th Symposium on Pavement Surface Characteristics: SURF 2012

Date: September 1922, 2012

The 2012 symposium was held in Norfolk, VA from September 19 – 22, 2012.

The event was organized by the World Road Association in partnership with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Virginia Transportation Research Council (VTRC) and the Center for Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure (CSTI) at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI).
