SUMO User Conference 2018 - Simulating Autonomous and Intermodal Transport Systems (May 14-16, 2018)
Traffic simulations are of immense importance for researchers as well as practitioners in the field of transportation. SUMO has been available since 2001 and provides a wide range of traffic planning and simulation applications. SUMO consists of a suite of tools covering road network imports and enrichment, demand generation and assignment and a state-of-the-art microscopic traffic simulation capable to simulate private and public transport modes, as well as person-based trip chains. Being open source, SUMO is ready to implement new behavioral models or to control the simulation remotely using various programming environments. These and other features make SUMO one of the most often used open source traffic simulations with a large and international user community.
The conference aims on presenting new and unique results in the field of mobility simulation and modelling using openly available tools and data. We expect a large variety of research topics and usage approaches. If you are doing a research project fitting the topics below you are kindly invited to submit an abstract. Possible areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
All accepted papers will be published in the SUMO proceedings which will be referenced on SCOPUS.
The conference language is English.
The registration fee includes a two and a half day conference program with refreshments, lunch, proceedings and social events in the evening. Accommodation is not included within the registration fee and must be pre-booked separately.

We are having a social event on Monday 14. May 2018 at 6 p.m. There will be a guided tour at the electron storage ring BESSY https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/quellen/bessy/elektronenspeicherring/index_en.html .
If you are planning to attend please register before 27 of April 2018. Only registered participants are allowed to join the guided tour. Unfortunately, children, pregnant or breastfeeding women are not allowed to enter BESSY.
Joerg Schweizer graduated in electrical engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, with specialization in control- and system theory. He further received a Masters of Engineering Science at the University College Dublin, Ireland and a PhD at the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, Switzerland, in the field of communication theory and coding.
From 1999-2002 he developed circuits for ultrasound-based navigation instruments and a measurement system for micro-sensors at the National Microelectronic Research Centre, Ireland.
In 2000 he started developing a micro-simulator for an innovative public transport system, based on individual, fully automated vehicles, called PRT. In 2003 he joint the transport-group at the civil engineering department of the University of Bologna, Italy. Within an EU funded project, he built a 1:10 scale PRT model and patented its distance control system. Joerg Schweizer has worked for Systematica and Mott McDonalds on the simulation of the first modern PRT system at Masdar, UEA.
Since 2006 he has become a full time researcher at the University of Bologna, Italy. His main research interest is microsimulations of multi-modal networks with activity based demand, including "soft modes"
like cycling and walking. He is also teaching courses in Sustainable Transportation Engineering and transport system simulations. Joerg Schweizer is a long time member of the Advanced Transit Association (ATRA).
