The Transportation Science and Logistics Society Conference has been created to provide an opportunity for all members to gather on a triennial basis to present and to discuss the state-of-the-art in transportation science and logistics. The conference welcomes abstracts on all transportation science and logistics topics including air transportation, facility logistics, freight transportation and logistics, intelligent transportation systems, and urban transportation planning and modeling. Abstracts supporting the conference theme, MOBILITY 2020: Traffic, Transportation and Logistics in a Cyber Connected World, are highly encouraged. Submissions focusing on innovation in transportation and logistics will receive special attention.

The goal is to keep the conference small enough for deep interactions and large enough to accommodate the TSL Society’s wide interests. With this in mind, there may be at most one paper presentation per registered presenter. Also, each presentation must be accompanied by at least one full paid registration.
Program: The conference will be organized around a small number of parallel tracks. The conference will also include plenaries organized around the theme MOBILITY 2020: Traffic, Transportation and Logistics in a Cyber Connected World. The organizing committee plans plenaries from both industry and academic speakers.
Social agenda: In addition to a broad look at the future of transportation, this workshop will provide numerous opportunities to network with colleagues and establish new working relationships.
A welcome reception overlooking downtown Chicago will start the event on Wednesday evening. On Friday evening, we will adjourn for dinner at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, with an opportunity to explore the collection prior to and after dinner.
Lunches will be provided on site each day of the conference.
Lodging: The conference hotel will be the MileNorth Hotel, located just off of Michigan Avenue in the heart of downtown Chicago (http://www.milenorthhotel.com/). A special conference rate will be available and more information will be provided as the conference approaches.
Venue: The conference will be held on Loyola’s Water Tower Campus, located along Pearson Street, just off North Michigan Avenue, Chicago’s famed “Magnificent Mile. The Water Tower Campus derives its name from the famous Chicago Water Tower, which survived the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The campus sits in the shadow of the iconic John Hancock Center. Other nearby architectural landmarks are the Tribune Tower, the Wrigley Building, the Trump Tower, and the site of Fort Dearborn, around which the city of Chicago was founded. Holy Name Cathedral and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago are located just south of campus, across Chicago Avenue. Cultural points of interest include the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Newberry Library, and Navy Pier. In addition to the unparalleled shopping on Michigan Avenue, the Water Tower Campus is also within a few minutes’ walk of numerous dining and entertainment options
