The Deen Distinguished Lectureship award recognizes the career contributions and achievements of an individual in areas covered by the Board’s Technical Activities Division. Honorees present overviews of their technical areas, covering the evolution, status, and prospects for the future. Originally known as the Transportation Research Board Distinguished Lectureship, the award was renamed in 2002 in honor of the eighth TRB Executive Director, who served with distinction from 1980 to 1994. Honorees are invited to present overviews of their technical areas, including evolution, present status, and prospects for the future. TRB also publishes each lecture in a volume of the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board. (Read more)
