There have been nine biennial International Conferences on Ecology and Transportation (ICOET) since its origin in 1999. The most recent conference was in Salt Lake City in May of 2017 co-hosted by the Utah & Wyoming Departments of Transportation with support from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and other sponsors. This pooled fund will support the next conference in 2019.
ICOET continues to serve as an invaluable conduit for transportation and ecology professionals to share applicable research and best practices, and to transfer knowledge between experienced practitioners and future leaders.
The ICOET program includes podium presentations, posters on current research, field trips, and exhibits on topics of interest to researchers, biologists, engineers, planners, project managers, administrators and policy makers. The folks that regularly attend ICOET represent hundreds of professionals that work for government, Tribal, academic, non-governmental and private industry from the United States and more than 20 countries.
The program booklet from ICOET 2017 is available here:
Provide one ICOET Conference in 2019 for communication, technology transfer and information sharing among transportation professionals on ecology issues and transportation. The ICOET Conference for 2019 will be September 22-26 in Sacramento, California hosted by the California Department of Transportation with support from FHWA.
Building on the 2017 ICOET Conference this 10th biennial conference in 2019 will:
• Bring experts around the world to exchange knowledge & best practices on the interrelationship of ecology &
• The sharing of ideas through presentations, panel discussions, breaks, lunches, receptions and field trips;
• Expand the shared knowledge and learn about the cutting edge of science on the topic of ecology and
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will serve as the lead state to carry out this pooled fund. The Davis Road Ecology Center at the University of California at Davis will organize the ICOET conference in 2019 and potentially future conferences. The ICOET Steering Committee and FHWA will be assisting WSDOT and the Davis Road Ecology Center in support of the ICOET Conference.

The minimum funding contribution is $5,000 from each partner.
