The attached call for abstracts is directed to graduate students conducting research on geometric-design related subjects (both within and outside the United States). Poster presentations of accepted research will be made during the 2021 Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting. The exact format is unclear at this stage since the annual meeting will be in a virtual format. Presentations will be selected on the basis of abstracts, and papers will not be required. Submission of abstracts for research that is not yet completed is encouraged.

This forum is being sponsored by TRB’s Performance Effects on Geometric Design (AKD10) Committee. Abstracts are due Friday, September 4, 2020. Questions should be directed to Zach Bugg (
