The Transportation Research Board of the U.S. National Academies has established an award in honor of Ryuichi Kitamura and his contributions in the areas of activity-based analysis, travel demand modeling, time-use research, dynamic analysis of travel behavior, travel survey methods, and transportation policy studies. The award is given at the annual TRB meeting for the year’s best student paper in one of these areas. Details on the award and eligibility are available here.
A cash prize supported by contributions to the Ryuichi Kitamura Fund is given to the student winners of the TRB Ryuichi Kitamura Paper Award following presentation of the paper to a UC Davis audience. Travel for student winners is supported by contributions to the Patricia Mokhtarian Fund for Travel Behavior.
