11th Annual Transport Practitioners' Meeting
Event: The conference boasts a varied programme, with over 60 presentations to choose from on a diverse range of subjects. The timetable is structured in order to maximise the numbers of sessions available to participants, as well as boost networking opportunities through the social programme and add academic value through technical visits.
The Transport Practitioners Meeting is aimed at transport planners, highways and traffic engineers, urban transport designers, managers and anyone involved in strategy development and delivery of transport services from the public and private sectors. It is designed to help build the image of the transport planning and engineering profession and to encourage the involvement of younger members of the profession as a way of enhancing their career development.
Dragons: Originality in Sustainable Transport
TPM 2013 will see the repeat of the ‘Dragons-Den-style’ session designed to give young professionals (28 or under on 2nd July 2013) a chance to showcase their ideas and/or projects regarding originality and innovation in the sustainable transport arena. Shortlisted entrants will have 5 minutes to present their scheme, which will be judged by a panel of experts. Three finalists will then have another 5-minute session where they are examined by the judges. The winner will be announced at the end of the session and will receive a prize If you would like to apply for one of these sessions, please submit an abstract in the manner indicated below.
This year there will be a number of poster session positions on offer alongside the conference exhibition. A poster session advertises your work or research, combining text and graphics to make a visually pleasing presentation without the need for a full written paper. It also allows attendees to study and restudy your information and discuss it with you on a one to one basis at the event. If you would like to apply for one of these positions, please submit an abstract in the manner indicated below.
If you have a project, idea or concept that is more effectively communicated in a workshop or surgery-style environment, these would be greatly considered. Please submit your abstract in the manner indicated below, clearly setting out your objectives, proposed methods and any equipment requirements.
Submitting an Abstract
Abstracts must be submitted in a Word document by email to Julia Sharp at email@example.com by Friday, 26 October 2012. Note that there is a limit of 300 words and that PDF files will not be accepted. You may submit more than one abstract if you wish.
The Selection Process:
All abstracts, “Dragons” TPM‚, workshop and poster session entries will be reviewed by a committee of industry experts and all entries received before the deadline will be considered.
Awards Ceremony + Dinner:
As well as the two day conference there is an Awards Ceremony & Dinner on the evening of Tuesday 2 July 2013 where six awards are presented to the Transport Planner of the Year, Best Paper at Conference by a Young Professional, Best Paper Demonstrating Sustainable Transport Solutions, Urban Transport Design Awards and the PTRC Lifetime Achievement Award.
