D-STOP Symposium logo This symposium is intended to bring together research being conducted as part of the Data Supported Transportation Operations and Planning (D-STOP) UTC Tier 1 Center and beyond with additional perspectives from individuals in the private and public sectors, as well as researchers. The hope is that, together, we can use the symposium not only to disseminate and learn from cutting edge research of relevance, but also as a vehicle to work toward ways to reduce the incubation time from research to implementation.
