Traffic Modeling and Management:
Trends and Perspectives
VI Workshop on Mathematical Foundations of Traffic (WMFT)
Sophia Antipolis, March 20-22, 2013
Vehicular traffic management constitutes a major issue for modern society. The problem of road traffic, and its effects on pollution, time-consumption and their social and economical consequences, require an accurate policy and planning of road networks. 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.
This workshop aims at creating and strengthening contacts in the community of researchers interested in Traffic Modeling and Management. Moreover, selected PhD students and postDocs will have the opportunity to present their results.
The topics covered in the various communications comprehend:
- vehicular traffic modeling (at micro, meso and macro scales)
- optimal traffic management
- traffic data fusion and data assimilation
- traffic network simulation, optimization and control
The intense conference time table will foster discussions and interactions among participants.
