The 3rd Annual TransportationCamp Washington DC will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014. The “unconference” is designed to bring together transportation professionals, technologists, and others interested in the intersection of urban transportation and technology.
Following on the success of previous Transportation Camps, TransportationCamp DC '14 will continue to expand the opportunities we have to improve mobility through recent advances in technology, such as web 2.0, mobile computing, open source software, open data and APIs, and spatial analysis. The conference will also examine ways to build connections between disparate innovators in public administration, transportation operations, information design, and software engineering.
The event will be on Saturday before the start of the Transportation Research Board 93rd Annual Meeting.
We're excited to be hosted by the GMU School of Public Policy, at GMU Founders Hall, 3351 Fairfax Drive, Arlington, VA 22201.
The location is easy to get to:
- Founders Hall is located two blocks east of the Virginia Square Metro Station (Orange Line).
- Two Capital Bikeshare stations are also within two blocks, at Virginia Square Metro and at Fairfax Dr/Wilson Blvd.
- Metro bus 38B runs from K St, NW and Georgetown.
Here's more info including parking and a map of the campus.
Door open at 8:30am for breakfast, and the introductory session begins at 9:30am. After wrapping up the day at 5pm we will go for drinks at Spider Kelly's, a nearby bar.
TransportationCamp DC '14 is sponsored by the Open Plans, Conveyal, Mobility Lab, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and the GMU School of Public Policy.
What's an "unconference?"
This is not a traditional conference. The organizers don't pick a set of panels and panelists ahead of time. Instead, you organize the panels! Anyone interested in talking about an issue can organize a session, and attendees just go to the sessions they're most interested in. For more information on how TransportationCamp works, read the Essential Guide.
TransportationCamp brings together thinkers and doers in the fields of transportation and technology for learning, debating, connecting and creating.
