MTS 2015: Mobility-management, Traffic safety and Simulations (13-16 JULY



Hasselt University | Campus Diepenbeek

Agoralaan Building D

3590 Diepenbeek - Belgium

Visit us at: www.mts-summerschool.eu

Registration DEADLINE: 31st May 2015



MTS 2015 will feature a series of lecturers by renowned researchers in the
following topics:

Mobility modeling: basic principles and tools

1. Behavior modeling, activity based models (activity selection, planning,
daily schedule generation)

2. Multi-modal trips

3. Modeling cooperation, cooperative scheduling (e.g. carpooling)

4. Ontologies

5. Traffic and transportation related models, travel demand prediction

6. Simulations in practice: what conclusions can be drawn?

Special focus: Agent based modeling & simulation for mobility, travel
behavior, mobility

market, electro-mobility (including smart grid, etc.) and freight transport

1. Delimiting the domain of applicability: where can agent based modeling
be useful?

2. Models for cooperation, mutual influence, negotiation

3. Computability issues, scalability

4. Ontologies

5. How to interpret results? What can be expected?

Big data as source for modeling

1. Big data repositories

2. Annotation, semantic enrichment of big data

3. Data mining and process mining to extract information from big data

4. Crowd sourcing and publicly available data: pitfalls and challenges

5. Using data from different sources: how to align?

NEW AT MTS 2015! In partnership with ABEONA bvba, we will organize an
Industrial Showcase,

where interested attendees get the opportunity to experience and work with
real life solutions and

systems in the fields of transportation modeling, big mobility analytics
and road safety.

Road Safety

1. Effectiveness evaluation studies & risk modeling

2. Conflict observation research

3. Driving simulation to study the effect of infrastructural measures on
driving behavior

4. Driving simulation to understand underlying mechanisms of dangerous or
distracted driving

5. Driving simulation to assess and train driving behavior

Transport applications

1. Electric vehicles (including smart grid concepts)

2. Carpooling (cooperation on trip traveling)

3. Multi-modality and car-sharing (cooperation on resource usage)

4. 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

5. Effect of EV characteristics (range anxiety, charging time, limited
range) on household travel



ABEONA bvba will identify key technologies and their stakeholders in the
fields 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 domains:

1. Driving simulator platforms (small and large) for both research and
training purposes.

2. Mobility and accessibility mobile applications developers.

3. Hands-on experience with state-of-the-art activity based models
simulating personal mobility


4. Transport related agencies and establishments.


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

- Participants interested only in applications and industry trends can
attend the Industrial Showcase

- Academic participants can get feedback on their work during the graduate
symposium sessions by submitting a 1 page (A4) abstract motivating the main
research challenges and stating the approach

being taken.
