Papers chosen for presentation will be published on CD-ROM for conference attendees in addition to the option of being published on Transport Chicago’s website. Paper presentation will occur in one of two separate forums: oral presentation before an audience or display at a “poster session.” While the committee requests that each author indicate a preference, the committee retains final decision-making authority on forum assignment. Student papers are encouraged and will be eligible for prizes on day of conference.
