Call For Papers


2022 AAPT ANNUAL MEETING AND TECHNICAL SESSIONS

Call for Papers

 

The Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT) is actively soliciting papers for consideration of presentation at its 2022 Annual Meeting and Technical Sessions and for publication in a Special Collection of the Transportation Research Record (TRR). Papers reporting on studies concerning any aspect of asphalt paving technology or related fields are considered, including asphalt materials, design, construction, maintenance/preservation, and research applications.

The following are options for submission:

  • Presentation and Publication

The option for submitters wishing to be considered for presentation at the AAPT Annual Meeting and considered for publication in a Special Collection of the Transportation Research Record (TRR). Publication decisions are made solely by the AAPT Editorial Board. Presentation decisions are made by the AAPT Board of Directors, after considering the recommendations from the Editorial Board.

This is the option chosen by most submitters.

  • Publication Only

The option for submitters wishing to be considered for publication in a Special Collection of the Transportation Research Record (TRR), but who do not necessarily wish to present at the Annual Meeting. As noted above, publication decisions are made solely by the AAPT Editorial Board.

This is an option chosen by some submitters.

  • Presentation Only

The option for submitters wishing to present their work at the AAPT Annual Meeting, but who do not want to write a full paper and/or subject their work to the paper review/selection/revision process required for publication. As noted above, presentation decisions are made by the Board of Directors.

This is an option chosen by some submitters.

Papers submitted for consideration of Presentation and Publication or Publication Only shall be a maximum of 27 pages (8.5″ x 11″) – including figures, tables, references and any appendices – in TRB/TRR format. See the Authors Instructions at the following link:

Papers submitted for Presentation Only may be considerably shorter than a typical paper but should provide enough information for the AAPT Board of Directors to fairly assess whether to offer a presentation slot to the submitter. The Authors Instructions can help provide guidance as well.

All papers shall be submitted through the Transportation Research Record Editorial Manager site at https://www.editorialmanager.com/trr/default1.aspx  by no later than April 1, 2022. Step-by-step instructions on the submission process are described in the “Submitting for a Special Collection” PDF.

If you are submitting your paper for both Publication and Presentation, you do not need to do anything further.  If you are submitting for Publication Only or Presentation Only, you can note that in your abstract and/or you can send an e-mail to papers@asphalttechnology.org letting us know your preference.

To be fair to other authors and reviewers please note that the submission deadline is a firm deadline.

Submissions will be reviewed by the appropriate group – the AAPT Editorial Board for those submissions seeking publication and the AAPT Board of Directors for those submissions seeking presentation at the Annual Meeting. Questions, comments, and suggested revisions from the reviewers will be provided along with the final decision on the submission.

To meet goals for program development and provide time for final revision of accepted papers, submitters should expect to receive notification of the decision on their submission by no later than the end of June 2022.

Please contact the AAPT office (651-293-9188 or papers@asphalttechnology.org) with any questions regarding requirements and the submittal-review-publication process.
