The 5th Transportation Research Board Conference on Innovations in Travel Modeling (ITM) of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) was held on April 27 - 30, 2014, in Baltimore, MD. This conference series is the premier forum for sharing the latest developments in travel modeling, networking with fellow professionals, and identifying research and implementation challenges and issues associated with deploying cutting-edge computational methods to meet evolving planning context.

NTC@Maryland was the local host of this prestigious academic conference and the Center’s director, Dr. Lei Zhang, was the conference co-chair. The Center also was an exhibitor and sponsor during the four day event. Members of the melding community exchanged information on promising modeling methods to address emerging policy questions, such as congestion mitigation, sustainable urban development, high speed rail, transportation planning, and economic development.
