"This symposium is a follow-on to the Fatigue Symposium that was held in February 1998. It is known as the Alertness Symposium, which reflects the positive rather than the negative. Since the first symposium, transit professionals have obtained more experience with this issue and have been able to put some of this experience into practice. They have also begun some education efforts. This symposium is a joint effort of the American Public Transit Association, the Community Transportation Association of America, the National Sleep Foundation, and the Federal Transit Administration." The symposium includes an accident investigation workshop; scheduling workshop; and medical workshop. The document includes a glossary of sleep terminology, bibliography on fatigue, and list of participants.
