Going to Washington

This is this time of the year (actually a bit later than the usual) and a large number of transportation professionals and academics go to Washington to attend the TRB Annual Meeting. I will be there this year for the fourth time (already?!) and will probably enjoy it like the previous times: it is a very stimulating time, where most of the best research done in transportation gets presented, and it is great to meet friends again. Washington is also a very nice city, although many people seem compelled to sneer at it: great museums, restaurants (beer!! See the Brickskeller, Krammerbooks, Capitol City Brewing Company, or Pizzeria Paradisio) and neighbourhoods like Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle just a few minutes away from the conference hotels. Yet, this is no vacation, with some meetings starting at 7am, and the last session finishing at 9:30pm…

I am flying in tomorrow morning, way too early. Here is a list of times and places where I will present work in which I participated, and an AI workshop panel I participate in.
