The First Annual 2016 National Road Research Alliance Conference, which is replacing the TERRA Pavement Conference, is scheduled for February 18, 2016 at the Continuing Education and Conference Center on the University of Minnesota’s St. Paul campus. The new National Road Research Alliance (NRRA) mission is Strategic Implementation Through Cooperative Pavement Research. We plan on featuring implementation efforts by our members throughout the conference with major emphasis on cooperative efforts between agencies, industry and academia.
As a part of that effort we are looking for presentations on case histories and experiences you have had over that past few years in the pavement engineering field. We currently have six time slots available, each about 30 minutes in length including time for questions. If you are interested, please submit a one-page abstract and send it to me by October 31, 2015. We will review the submittals and select the best six with priority given to collaborative presentations. In addition, and also new this year, we will be selecting the best presentation by a vote of the conference attendees and present the award at the end of the conference. I am looking forward to seeing your abstracts.
Director, MnDOT Office of Materials & Road Research
