Call for Country Reports

One of the key themes of previous symposia was presentations of "country reports." At the 3rd International Symposium, meeting participants enjoyed hearing representatives from 14 nations present information about their developments in highway geometric design, policy, and practice.

Individuals are now invited to submit abstracts for "country reports" for the 4th International Symposium. If accepted by the Conference Steering Committee, individual country reports may be presented in relevant technical paper sessions or special poster sessions. In addition, a limited number of country reports will be chosen for presentation during the opening plenary session. All country reports will be published in the Symposium Proceedings.

Country reports should provide an overview of significant recent developments in highway geometric design policy, practice and standards in the specific country. By contrast with technical papers that provide details on a single technical issue, country reports should highlight several issues that illustrate the full range of recent developments related to geometric design in the country.

Country report abstracts should include the country report title; authors’ names; corresponding author’s mailing address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address; and a brief narrative description of the issues and developments to be reported. Abstracts should not exceed one (1) typewritten page, and should be in English.
