*The Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) of Hasselt University
organizes the second Summer School on 'Mobility-Management, Traffic-Safety
and Simulations (MTS) 2015'.Weblink: http://www.mts-summerschool.eu

This Summer School will take place at:

*Hasselt University, Campus Diepenbeek | Agoralaan Building D | 3590
Diepenbeekfrom Monday July 13th till Thursday July 16th 2015*

At MTS-2015 we have added a specially focused Industrial showcasing in
partnership with our Industrial partner - ABEONA bvba. For details plese
see section "Industrial Showcasing".


The Summer School will feature a series of lecturers by renowned
researchers in the following topics:

Mobility modeling: basic principles and tools.

Behavior modeling, activity based models (activity selection, planning,
daily schedule generation)
Multi-modal trips
Modeling cooperation, cooperative scheduling (e.g. carpooling)
Traffic and transportation related models, travel demand prediction models
Simulations in practice: what conclusions can be drawn?

Special focus: Agent based modeling and simulation for mobility, travel
behavior, mobility market, electro-mobility (including smart grid, etc.)
and freight transport modeling.

Delimiting the domain of applicability: where can agent based modeling be
Models for cooperation, mutual influence, negotiation
Computability issues, scalability
How to interpret results? What can be expected?

Big data as source for modeling.

Big data repositories
Annotation, semantic enrichment of big data
Data mining and process mining to extract information from big data
Crowd sourcing and publicly available data: pitfalss and challenges
Using data from different sources: how to align?

Road Safety

Effectiveness evaluation studies & risk modelling
Conflict observation research
Driving simulation to study the effect of infrastructural measures on
driving behavior
Driving simulation to understand underlying mechanisms of dangerous or
distracted driving
Driving simulation to assess and train driving behavior

Transport applications

Electric vehicles (including smart grid concepts)
Carpooling (cooperation on trip traveling)
Multi-modality and car-sharing (cooperation on resource usage)
Markets based on big data related to traffic
Business models for EV, multi-modal trips, car-sharing, carpooling
Online support systems (ride sharing advisors)
Traffic load prediction systems
Effect of EV characteristics (range anxiety, charging time, limited range)
on household travel behavior

*Industry Showcasing*

In partnership with a young and innovative company ABEONA bvba, the summer
school will provide a unique opportunity for interested attendees to
experience and work with real life solution and systems. ABEONA bvba will
identify key technologies and their stakeholders in the field of
transportation modeling, big mobility data analytics and road safety.
Representatives from exhibiting companies will exhibit their solutions and
products and will answer visitors questions and inform them about the
latest trends in their domains. Example exhibitors will cover the following

Driving simulator platforms (small and large) for both research and
training purposes.
Mobility and accessibility mobile applications developers.
Hands-on experience with state-of-the-art activity based models which
simulates personal mobility patterns.
Transport related agencies and establishments.

*Target audience*

The Summer School is suited for senior-researchers, early-stage
researchers, students, practitioners and companies working in the domain of
transportation sciences, data mining, agent/activity based modeling, road
safety and related topics.

Participants interested only in applications and industry trends can attend
the related events in the Summer School. Academic participants will have
the opportunity to get feedback on their work during the graduate symposium
sessions. Participants can submit a 1 page (A4) abstract motivating the
main research challenge they are addressing and stating the approach being
taken. All the submitted proposals will be presented in a graduate
symposium. Abstracts can be submitted during registration (in the
registration form) as soon as registration will open.
