Panel discussion with all speakers


Background: This Colloquium began as a modest effort to bring together transportation graduate students in Sarah Catz's urban planning and Prof Recker's and Saphores's concurrent civil engineering classes, to have planners and engineers discuss the current transformation of mobility and to share and understand different perspectives. As we have been able to secure both a larger venue and outstanding panel of speakers we are inviting all ITS graduate students and faculty to attend, and look forward to a stimulating and wide-ranging discussion.


For catering purposes, however, we must receive your RSVP by Monday noon. So, if you are NOT an enrolled student in this Wednesday's classes of Prof Catz, Recker or Saphores, please send your RSVP to Daphne Zamora in ITS: [email protected]
