TSSC Review Request

Fill out the survey based on your profession

This year we have designed google polls to collect your choices for the reviews.

Please select the appropriate poll based on your current employment. The papers that get enough number of reviewers will be automatically eliminated from the poll. So please fill out your choices as soon as possible to get your first picks.

Also, if you have any conflict of interest with a paper – which we understand you may not know until you get the assignment and see who wrote the paper – please let us know as soon as possible.

We will begin to make paper assignments as soon as possible and our plan is to have assigned the majority of the reviews by August 20 so that everybody has sufficient time to complete the reviews. Reviews are due September 15, 2015.

 
TRB’s review guidelines can be found here:
 
If you have students, colleagues, friends, or others that would be interested in reviewing papers, please share the email with them. Again, ask them to select the polls based on their current employment.

Please be mindful that we need high quality reviews that are constructive to the authors. We would prefer you select fewer papers and do an excellent job of determining the contribution and quality of each paper. We need high quality reviews to find the best contributions. Please make sure to provide sufficient comments to justify your scores to assist with presentation and publication decsions.
Also, please use the confidential notes to the chair to let me know if a paper should be considered for any award, including the Traffic Signal Systems Committee Best Paper award (for both the research & practice-oriented categories).

Thanks. We look forward to seeing all of you at TRB in January!

Workshop on Connected Vehicle Dynamic Mobility Applications and Multi Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal Systems

Meeting Registration

Venue: Scottsdale, Arizona

Date: May 17-19, 2015

Please consider registering to attend the upcoming TRB Signal Systems mid-year meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona, May 17-19; focusing on Connected Vehicle Dynamic Mobility Applications and Multi-Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal Systems.

The workshop will cover connected vehicle system architecture, standards, security, and a deep dive into the Multi Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) dynamic mobility applications developed under a Pooled Fund project including a field demonstration in the Arizona Connected Vehicle Test Bed in Anthem, Arizona.

 

This will be a very engaging and relevant meeting and field demonstration, particularly given the speed with which private industry is moving in the Connected Vehicle space.

Committee Chair’s Note- TRB 2015

Dear all,

It was an honor to serve as the Chair of the Traffic Signal Systems Committee at this year’s Annual Meeting. The new venue of the Convention Center was well orchestrated by TRB staff and the preparation resulted in a wonderful TRB meeting. While we’ll miss the familiarity of the Wardman Park Neighborhood, we’re fortunate to be in the heart of Downtown DC. This year’s edition of the Annual Meeting included our traditional Sunday Workshop using the IGNITE format, which simply described is like speed dating for presentations. Automatically triggered 20 slides every 20 seconds kept presenters on their toes and the audience watching for each new bit of information and for difficulty in coordination of the slide and the speaker. The presentations will be available on the new website here. As a presenter, the IGNITE Format  was a new experience for me at the lectern and challenged me to be concise with my message. Given that we reached 150 people even with the Packers/Cowboys game as competition, I think you’ll agree that it was a resounding success that we’ll repeat again with different topics in the future. Thanks to all of the speakers and especially for the organizers Doug Gettman of Kimley Horn Associates and Shaun Quayle of Kittelson & Associates for pulling this together.

Leaving the TRB meeting behind, we turn to the Summer Meeting in Phoenix, AZ. Larry Head of the University of Arizona has agreed to host us and share his work on Connected Vehicles and the Multimodal elements that his team has deployed in Anthem, AZ. I am very excited about the opportunity to learn about moving past what I often describe as “First Generation” transit signal priority systems that rely on line of sight and distributed technology. Our Summer meeting in 2013 covered the transit priority implementation in King County Metro (Seattle) that’s an example and if you want more history on the topic, you can review Transit Signal Priority Workshop materials from 2004.

 I am also resolving to communicate with the Committee more frequently, to keep you up to date on the work our subcommittees are doing and keep you up to date on volunteer opportunities. I have a few emails from a few of you and am sorting through them as I continue to recover from the week that was. Look for emails more often from me.

 Our Committee’s efforts are a function of our volunteers. One of the biggest tasks throughout the year is the Paper Review process and for a second year, Eleni Christofa of University of Massachusetts  did an amazing job with a record number of papers (106). Our growth in activity continues to impress TRB and our work was recognized at the Section meeting. One of my favorite activities of the Committee meeting is to congratulate the Best Paper Award winner. This year it was “Resonant Cycles Under Various Intersection Spacing, Speeds and Traffic Operations Treatments” authored by Felipe Ladrion de Guevara, Mark Hickman and Larry Head. A special thanks to Paul Olson, who recently retired from the Federal Highway Administration for his work pulling together the reviewers and for making this happen.

 Best,

Peter
