Anchorage offers numerous technical and siteseeing opportunities to conference participants and their guests. Its natural beauty, well-conserved environment, and unique species of animals and plants make it a superbly attractive place for world-wide travelers.
Technical and Special Tours
Special technical tours will be arranged to vist with the State of Alaaska Department of Transportation and the Municipality of Anchorage traffic management centers. Siteseeing tours will also be available, including half-day or full-day cruises to see many of Alaska’s glaciers, rides on the Alaska railroad along the Cook Inlet (where humpback whales may be seen on one side and moose and dall sheep often frequent the other), flight-seeing tours into the famous Denali National Park, trips to the Alaska Zoo (located in Anchorage, it is the only place you can see live polar bears in the city), and escorted or unescorted museum tours where you can experience native Alaskan culture firsthand.
Who Should Attend
Those in ITS research, development, design, deployment, planning, and decision making who are in academic institutions, transportation industry, automotive manufacturers and suppliers, government, local transport authorities, national labs, international organizations, public transport authorities, freight and transport operators, public transport operators, service providers, telecom operators, system integrators, commercial fleet owners, road operators, and motoring organizations and all others who are in the energy and environment sector with an interest in transportation systems will benefit by attending this unique conference.
