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/

3G Mobility promotes the next generation of transportation, encouraging faster, ecological, cost-effective grassroots solutions through social media publishing, strategic consulting, and innovative research.

The Institute for Information Law and Policy is New York Law School's home for the study of law, technology and civil liberties - a "do tank," where lawyers innovate, harnessing the new tools of information and communications to the goals of social justice. This mission is premised on the notion that both software code and legal code shape human relations. Like law, technology, too, determines how we communicate and share information, which, in turn, defines our culture. The Institute consciously aims to create a 'hot spot' for innovation - taking an approach unlike that of any other law school.
