2020 ANNUAL MEETING AND TECHNICAL SESSIONS
San Diego, California
March 22-25, 2020
The Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT) is actively soliciting paper offers for its 2020 Annual Meeting and Technical Sessions. The Annual Meeting is attended by specialists from academia, research organizations, material producers, contractors, national and state authorities, and consultants from around the world. Papers reporting on studies concerning any aspect of asphalt paving technology or related fields are considered. These can include research, design, construction, and maintenance issues dealing with all types of asphalt binders, asphalt mixtures, and pavement applications – including innovative ideas and improvements to current practice. Papers offered for the 2020 Annual Meeting will be submitted through the AAPT paper submission website which will be available soon. The deadline to submit papers is September 16, 2019 at 12:00pm CST.
New Publication Process
As discussed in Jacksonville in March our publication process is changing. The newly-formed Editorial Board will be conducting the reviews of all submitted papers and determining which ones will get published. The Board of Directors will decide which submissions will get presented at the Annual Meeting. While we expect these two groups to be essentially the same, there could be some differences – particularly since more papers may be accepted for publication than we have podium time available. So just know that publication may not equal presentation.
