    In light of the global trend of using Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) as an alternative transportation project delivery mechanism by government agencies in the U.S. and other countries, Dalian University of Technology (DUT) in Dalian, China in collaboration with The University of Texas at Austin successfully hosted the 1st International Conference on Public-Private Partnership (ICPPP2013) from August 5-7, 2013, in Dalian, China. Attracting delegates from 11 countries, ICPPP2013 served as an excellent platform for exchanging ideas and facilitating dialogues among different sectors involved with PPPs and between academia and practitioners. Considering the increasing trend in using PPPs by state DOTs in the U.S. and road, transport and other infrastructure agencies worldwide, key stakeholders organizing and attending ICPPP2013 reached the consensus that the ICPPP series should continue and that the 2nd International Conference on Public-Private Partnership (ICPPP2015) be held in Austin, Texas, on May 26-29, 2015.

    In the particular case of the U.S., the recent statement by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to the House Budget Committee that the Highway Trust Fund will not be able to meet its obligations come 2015 leads to the conclusion that more use will be made of the PPP approach. This trend seems to be the case in several countries in both the developed and developing worlds.

    We thank you for your interest in ICPPP2015 and look forward to seeing you in Austin in May 2015!
