Vehicles and Crowds
VIII Workshop on the Mathematical Foundations of Traffic
Rome, 6-10 March 2017
Aims and Ideas
Transport modeling and management constitutes a major issue for modern society. Vehicular traffic and crowd movements, and their consequences on pollution, safety, time-consumption and their social and economical consequences, require an accurate policy and planning of the infrastructure. The modeling and analysis of traffic phenomena can be performed at different scales (micro, meso and macro), and the research activity on the subject has grown considerably in the last decades, involving engineers, physicists and mathematicians. The workshop will focus on the mathematical developments which can contribute to advancing the fields of modeling of traffic, calibration and estimation of models, and control of traffic through mathematical models.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together communities of researchers interested in transport modeling and management, which can mutually benefit from each other.
Moreover, we offer two days of thematic courses on the analytical and numerical aspects of traffic modeling and operation research, addressed to PhD students and postDocs.
