      The focus of this conference and workshop is on innovative market-based

      bring together practitioners, experts, and researchers from various
      transportation agencies and background (e.g., economics, transportation,
      civil
      engineering, operations research, industrial engineering, urban planning,
      social
      science, etc.) to discuss and share innovative ideas in pricing of
      transportation systems. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the

      following:

      Airport pricing, Area-based pricing, Auction-based pricing, Behavioral
      responses to pricing, Congestion options, Cordon pricing, Costs and benefits
