Test Track Conference



Held every three years, the Test Track Conference is a forum to present research findings from the previous cycle of accelerated pavement testing. During the two and a half day program, participants learn about advancements in asphalt pavement design, construction, technologies, and maintenance that are more cost effective and improve performance. The conference also provides a valuable networking opportunity and sets the stage for further cooperation among federal, state, and local agencies as well as the private sector.


Our seventh cycle conference will be held June 22-24, 2021 at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center in Auburn, Alabama.
