EWGT 2016

The EURO Working Group on Transportation 2016 Meeting will offer keynote plenary talks; workshops; tutorials; and oral presentations from academics, industry experts, students, and representatives of government agencies to discuss recent methodological developments and application challenges in traffic, transportation, and logistics systems. In conjunction with the motivation of the EURO Working Group on Transportation, the main theme for the conference has been specified as the “Simulation and Optimization of Traffic and Transportation Systems”.

In conjunction with the theme of EWGT2016, leading scientists that have confirmed keynotes are:

Peter Wagner, German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and TU Berlin, Germany
Jaume Barceló, UPC-Barcelona Tech, Spain
Michel Gendreau, CIRRELT and MAGI, École Polytechnique, Montréal, Canada
