Originally held in 2002, this conference will build on the previous conference's accomplishments by combining the annual Road Profiler Users Group meeting with discussions and presentations from other disciplines of non-destructive pavement evaluation. In addition to profiling, other topics of interest include texture and friction measurement, tire-pavement noise, ground penetrating radar (GPR), video distress rating and structural testing. The conference welcomes representatives from government transportation agencies, academia and private industry. It will benefit end-users, operators, researchers, construction and design engineers, and manufacturers who have an interest in the equipment, methods, and use of non-destructive pavement evaluation. It is also highly recommended for consultants, contractors, and construction equipment developers who are in the business of meeting performance requirements for traveled surfaces (such as smoothness). After the meeting, equipment owners and manufactures will be invited to participate at an equipment comparison rodeo to be conducted at the Virginia Smart Road in Blacksburg, Virginia.
