EWGT2014 - time to say thanks


Sevilla, 04.07.2014

Many thanks to everyone who took part and contributed to the EWG2014 meeting …………you have been the actors responsible of the success of the event.

We have also to thank the organizers, Franscisco Benitez and his "Special Team" from the Transportation Engineering Division of the University of Seville.

We have appreciated very much their great and efficient effort in realizing a successful event both from the scientific and social point of view. My special thank to Franscisco for their willingness and friendship.

We have also to give our thanks to the authors and also to all the reviewers that have contributed for selecting the very good works presented during the sessions.

… see you next summer in Delft.

11th Short Course 2014 "Dynamic Traffic Flow Modelling and Control"

11th Short Course 2014 "Dynamic Traffic Flow Modelling and Control"

Technical University of Crete

Dynamic Systems and Simulation Laboratory

Chania 73100, Greece

11th Short Course 2014

Lecturer: Prof. Markos Papageorgiou
Date: 3-7 November 2014
Location: Chania (Crete), Greece
Fee: 1.700 € (for graduate students: 1.300 €)
(20% reduction is granted in case of more than one participation from the same institution)



The design, analysis, and evaluation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) requires a good knowledge of traffic flow modelling and control techniques as well as of powerful methodologies from the areas of optimisation, control, networks and dynamic systems. The purpose of the intensive 5-day course is to cover the basic theory, methods and tools necessary for efficient design and evaluation of ITS on road and freeway networks. After a basic introduction to dynamic systems and control, the course continues with traffic flow modelling and validation issues, covering various traffic flow models, the modelling of traffic networks, dynamic traffic assignment and simulation tools. Measurement devices and estimation problems in traffic networks, including automatic incident detection and OD estimation, are presented and discussed. The state-of-the-art techniques in freeway traffic control, road traffic control and integrated traffic control, employing ramp metering, signal control, variable speed limits and route guidance, together with several field-implemented case studies are presented. Future prospects and challenges related to emerging vehicle automation and communication systems are discussed. Brief accounts of modern optimisation, control and estimation techniques are provided. Some 50 exercises are used for consolidation of the provided knowledge. Extensive written materials, including all transparency copies, are handed out.

Who Should Attend

Graduate students, engineers, researchers, consultants, and government employees who are interested in improving their understanding of advanced traffic flow modelling and control tools and in becoming familiar with their application in ITS.

Please forward the information about the Short Course to any of your colleagues who may be interested.

Piscopia Fellowships

PISCOPIA is a Programme co-funded by the Marie Curie actionsunder the FP7 Programme of the European Union to attract outstanding junior researchers for a period of 12 or 24 months. The main objective is to reinforce the international dimension of the University of Padova.

The Programme intends to support the most promising young researchers to implement their research project at the University of Padova and to acquire those complementary and transversal skills necessary to start their independent research career.

All the disciplines present at the University are open for fellowships.

Modeling and Simulation of Transportation Networks

Modeling and Simulation of Transportation Networks

Modeling and simulation methods are essential elements in the design and operation of transportation systems. Congestion problems in cities worldwide have prompted at all levels of government and industry, a proliferation of interest in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) that include advanced supply and demand management techniques. Such techniques include real-time traffic control measures and real-time traveler information and guidance systems whose purpose is to assist travelers in making departure time, mode, and route choice decisions. Transportation researchers have developed models and simulators for use in the planning, design, and operations of such systems. This course draws heavily on the results of recent research and is sponsored by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
One full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding doctoral student. The deadline to apply for the full scholarship is June 15, 2014. Partial (50%) tuition scholarships are also available for junior faculty, postdocs, and doctoral students.
