Call for Abstracts:
National Rural ITS and ITS Arizona Conference Meeting + Exhibit


The Call for Abstracts will remain open for late submissions beyond the deadline.

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and ITS Arizona are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract in support of our upcoming National Rural ITS and ITS Arizona Annual Conference + Exhibit, October 21-24 in Fort McDowell, AZ (metro Phoenix area). This year's theme, Creating ITS Implementation Solutions for All Communities, represents the opportunity to share how leveraging technology applications and resources improves transportation in our communities. This meeting will combine rural ITS experts and Arizona's transportation thought leaders to create a program that inspires attendees, allows them to create connections and leaves them with knowledge and tools to positively impact their own programs. 

We are seeking abstracts on the broad range of issues that address ITS technology's vital role in building vibrant, livable, and healthy communities in a rural, statewide or community context. Program content will represent the demand for implementation solutions in a world focused on building safe transportation options for all. In developing your abstract we encourage you to thoughtfully consider the theme and purpose of the meeting and shape your proposed presentation appropriately. An attendee needs to come away from your presentation with immediately applicable tools and/or skills or a clear vision on how what you presented will shape the future of transportation. Our abstract submission process is competitive and we are looking to build a program that reflects the theme of this conference.
