Coeur d’Alene, Idaho –August 28-31, 2011
Named by French-speaking fur traders, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho has long been a hub for exchanging goods. In 2011, we will continue this tradition as we exchange knowledge and information at the 2011 National Rural ITS Conference and ITS Rocky Mountain Annual Meeting. Located on the shore of beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, attendees can mix family-friendly fun with training and networking opportunities, dozens of technical sessions and exciting professional tours. Don’t forget to save time for the golf tournament hosted by the ITS Rocky Mountain Chapter. You wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to hit a golf shot onto the world’s only moveable, floating green! It’s always an adventure here, so join us for “Adventures in ITS”.
This conference will provide participants the opportunity to network and share experiences within and across a wide variety of ITS disciplines. In addition to traditional ITS topics, this event will bring together both traditional and non-traditional ITS users to address such issues as rural safety, creating and maintaining livable/sustainable communities, multiagency
coordination, and workforce development, as well as EMS and transit issues. The 2011
sponsors include Ada County Highway District, Idaho Transportation Department, ITS America, ITS
Joint Program Office, Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), ITS Rocky
Mountain, Open Roads Consulting, Inc., RouteMatch Software, Inc., Washington State Department of
Transportation, and Western Transportation Institute.
The many different training and networking opportunities available through this event will provide
participants with the tools necessary to effectively plan and deploy ITS technologies within their own jurisdictions. More information can be found on the conference website: http://nritsconference.org/
