About the Conference

The conference convenes researchers and practitioners from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest to highlight new learning, emerging ideas, and the latest innovations in transportation. Attendees will learn about research findings, implementation efforts, and engagement activities related to a variety of transportation topics.

The conference will still occur as scheduled on November 5, 2020. We have no plans to cancel or postpone the conference at this time, but we will be closely monitoring all developments related to COVID-19. CTS is following the latest guidance from the University of Minnesota, State of Minnesota, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as it relates to participation in our events. The health and safety of our participants, speakers, and staff is our top priority.
