 Call for Presentations

Please note that the deadline for submitting abstracts has passed.

APTA is pleased to invite its members to submit abstracts for TransITech 2011, which will be held March 29-31 at the Hilton Miami Downtown in Miami, Florida.

Planning Schedule

January 14, 2011 Abstracts and submittal forms due to APTA
February 11, 2011 Accepted authors notified
March 29-31, 2011  TransITech Conference

Session Format & Topics

The APTA TransITech 2011 planning committee proposed changes to the format and content from previous conferences. This year we are co-locating with the APTA Fare Collection Workshop. There will be joint sessions and a shared exhibit showcase.

The conference will include a mix of session types, including both presentations and roundtable discussions. The mix of session topics will include more information technology specific and innovative technologies to balance with the previous emphasis on transit-focused and ITS technologies.

Submittals are encouraged for both presentations and roundtable discussions on the topics listed at the link below. Presentations will be limited to 15 to 20 minutes, and similar topics will be grouped together for one- to two-hour sessions.

Submitting an Abstract

You and your colleagues are invited to submit abstracts online. Please note that only members can submit abstracts and access the online form. You may also complete and submit the attached “Proposed Technical Presentation Submittal Form.”

We only require an abstract at this time.  However, the development of a paper for distribution at TransITech is encouraged, and advanced visual aids and graphics are highly desirable.

Session moderators are also needed. If you are interested in moderating a session, please let us know by submitting the form mentioned above.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday, January 14, 2011.
