The mid-year meeting of the ATM Joint Subcommittee will be held during the Freeway and Managed Lane Operations Meeting and Conference on June 23-26, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia. The workshop will address the state of the practice in freeway operations and the integration of managed lanes into the transportation system. Sessions at the workshop will focus on transportation agency experiences and “lessons learned” from the planning, design, and operations of managed lanes. The meeting will also identify and document potential emerging research needs in this rapidly evolving area of traffic operations.
Early bird registration rates expire May 4, 2013. Advance registration rates expire May 27, 2013. Visit the TRB website for more details and for registration information.
Make plans to attend the Joint Mid-year Meeting of the Freeway Operations (AHB20) and Managed Lanes (AHB35) Committees and the Joint Subcommittee on ATM. The dates are June 23-26, 2013 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia. General information is attached and more information, including registration and hotel information, will be provided soon.

Plan now to attend the
Freeway Operations Committee Midyear Meeting being held Monday, July 30, 2012 -
Wednesday, August 01, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Minneapolis,
Minnesota. This year’s meeting
will focus on Active Traffic Management (ATM.) Attendees will have the
opportunity to explore issues and share information related to managing and
operating freeway systems. The midyear meeting will include: open committee
meetings, joint collaborative discussions, general sessions, and a technical
tour of the ATM corridors in the Minneapolis area. Specifically, the
ATM Joint Subcommittee will be meeting on Sunday, July 29th, along
with many of the other subcommittees. An agenda will be forthcoming in
the next week or so.
Register by June 11 to receive the TRB 'Early Bird'

The Joint Subcommittee has endorsed a proposed topic developed by the Freeway Operations Committee for the NCHRP Synthesis Project 20-5. The topic is entitled Predictive Traffic Flow Methodologies for Use with Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM) Strategies.
To view a copy of the proposed topic, see the Research Needs
page. You can also view a copy of the list of research needs developed during our 2011 mid-year meeting on the same page. If you have suggestions for additional research ideas, please do not hesitate to forward them to Beverly Kuhn for inclusion. We are working on this list and will enhance and expand it in the coming months.
Focusing on trip reliability, active traffic management
(ATM) - widely deployed for decades in Europe but in its early stages in the
United States - maximizes the effectiveness and efficiency of the facility, and
increases throughput and safety through integrated systems with new technology,
including the automation of dynamic deployment to optimize performance
quickly. This congestion management
approach consists of a combination of strategies that, when implemented in
concert, fully optimize the existing infrastructure and provide measurable
benefits to the transportation network and the motoring public. These strategies include:
signing and re-routing.
This webinar provided participants with
information on best practices for deployment and operation of ATM strategies
that can help a positive impact on transportation networks where ATM is
deployed. The webinar provided an
overview of ATM, information on operational strategies and examples, and
general guidelines on their deployment.
Friends and Members of the HOV, HOT, & Managed Lanes Committee,
Hopefully by now you have received information about the 2012 International Conference on HOV, HOT and Managed Lanes that TRB will be sponsoring in the San Francisco Bay Area May 22-24, 2012. It will be at the Marriott Convention Center Hotel in downtown Oakland. This promises to be an exciting conference with lots of opportunities to learn about the new Express Lane Program in the Bay Area, as well as other innovative and new managed-lane applications from around the world.
This is a reminder that the deadline to submit presentation abstracts is Monday, October 10. I hope you will consider submitting an abstract and plan on attending the conference.
Please submit your presentation abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org . Contact Rich Cunard at email@example.com if you have any questions about the conference, or Don Samdahl at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the technical program.
