Event Details

 

TransportationCamp is a weekend-long unconference bringing together transportation professionals, civic technologists, and others interested in the intersection of urban transportation and technology. 

(main TransportationCamp website)

Why:

Transportation is a major metropolitan issue, with direct impacts on economic strength, environmental sustainability, and social equity.  Recent advances in technology (“web 2.0”, mobile computing, open source software, open data and APIs, and spatial analysis) present an opportunity to improve mobility more immediately and at a lower cost than has ever been possible in the past.

TransportationCamp will raise awareness of this opportunity and build connections between disparate innovators in public administration, transportation operations, information design, and software engineering.

What:

TransportationCamp will bring together thinkers and doers in the fields of transportation and technology for a weekend of learning, debating, connecting, and creating.

This is not a traditional conference: in addition to talks and presentations from big names in transportation and technology, TransportationCamp will provide an opportunity for every attendee to be a participant in shaping and leading the event.  Be prepared to get involved, meet people, and get busy.

Session topics and activities will be suggested by attendees and organizers leading up to the event.  So far, we’ve collected suggestions for over twenty possible topics, ranging from realtime information to legal issues. Add your ideas here: http://transportationcamp.org/topics/
