Next stop, the Lassonde School’s Transportation Research Symposium June 27

The Lassonde School of Engineering will be hosting the Transportation Research Symposium on Tuesday, June 27, from 8.30am to 3pm in Room 125, Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence, Keele campus.

The Transportation Research Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on rapid urbanization and the resulting congestion, which has significant economic implications, loss of productivity, increased pollution, and health and safety concerns for commuters and residents of urban areas.

Department of Civil Engineering Professor Peter Park will lead the symposium. Park has more than 20 years of experience as a traffic safety analyst, transportation engineer and planner.

“The idea is to bring researchers together to find areas where we can collaborate,” said Park.

The interdisciplinary symposium will bring together Faculty from the Lassonde School of Engineering, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, Schulich School of Business, and Faculty of Environmental Studies. Participants will consider a variety of topics including GIS data analytics, vision-based technologies, electric vehicles, self-driving cars and more.
