Welcome to the 2022 Region 10 Transportation Conference. We are incredibly excited for a diverse group of excellent speakers for the 9th annual conference. This year the conference is being organized by the Pacific Northwest Transportation Consortium (PacTrans) Region 10 University Transportation Center, the Center for Safety Equity in Transportation (CSET) Tier 1 University Transportation Center, and the UW Mobility Innovation Center (MIC). We are proud continue this tradition of hosting the premier forum for transportation research in the Pacific Northwest. Each year the conference aims to hear from leaders in transportation, showcase innovation in technology and research, provide a means for collaboration, and advance the transportation workforce. Our theme this year is Driving Multimodal Mobility & Safety Innovations into the Future.
As the Chair of the Planning Committee, I am truly excited to bring this conference back to Seattle after two years of virtual conferences. This year we will host the one-day event on the University of Washington campus. We have a wonderful, in-person agenda planned, that we hope will provide a special opportunity for greater reach within and outside our region. As has been tradition in the past, our in-person conference will feature a keynote address, a plenary session, a series of technical breakout sessions, and a posters session, among other activities. We will make all necessary details available on the website as it is finalized.
We look forward to your participation and look forward to seeing you in Seattle.
-Yinhai Wang, Chair of the Conference Planning Committee
