In September 1998, ten municipalities signed a covenant that regulates the cooperation between these parties in the field of model development. This made the Platform Toedeling- en Simulation Models (PLATOS) a fact. With PLATOS, cooperation between governments, the business community and knowledge institutes in the field of models was given an important boost. PLATOS was organized as a joint venture in which all kinds of projects in the field were carried out by two or more participating parties. When the platform was terminated after three years, eight projects had been carried out. The reports can be found on this website (PLATOS reports). One of the objectives of PLATOS was informing the users about the developments and identifying their wishes in order to achieve the best possible use of the available resources. As a result, the PLATOS colloquium was introduced, a day on which model developers and model users meet and exchange information about developments and applications of traffic models. When the collaboration platform was stopped, the colloquium remained, because the need for information exchange and meeting still existed. That is why the PLATOS modeling colloquium has now secured a permanent place on the conference agend
Project management congress 2019 Delft University of Technology and the Project Management Institute (PMI) Netherlands Chapter are delighted to invite you to participate in the international Project Management Congress “ADAPT or DIE” on Thursday 11 April and Friday 12 April 2019. Research meets Practice: Project Management 3.0. Project management today is based on data, insights and experience in the field, but the nexus of successful projects is skilled people. How improve the connection between Industry, Academia, and Professional organizations to address the skills gap of the future? Will our workforce of the future be ready for the challenges ahead? It’s time to build bridges between this disciplines. But we intend to go further, the requirements of projects are changing. Business are now looking at different models and approaches to execution, and new metrics to test success. Our goal is to bring the discussion into business outcomes, beyond project processes, to get to the real value of projects to all of us.
New in our public transport course, learn and experience unique examples of public transport planning and operations. The course includes a guided study visit excursion to gain first-hand experience with state-of-the-art public transport planning and operations. In previous editions, we visited, for instance, the new Rotterdam Central Station, an intermodal hub including high-speed international, national and regional train services, metro, tram, bus and a garage for 5,000 bikes. We also have visited the new North-South line in Amsterdam and the Zero Emission bus fleet and facilities near Schiphol Airport. Learning by doing: join us in playing a new service design game on our public transport course The course includes an exciting interactive service design game where you will gain first-hand experience with making service design decisions and assessing their consequences. You will be asked to look into the specifics of public transport and choose a set of measures for improving the public transport network in The Hague. You will experience the trade-off between different measures and learn how to make service decisions with limited resources This course is provided in association with the Institute of Transport Studies, Monash University, the Transportation Research Institute, Technion, and the Delft University of Technology.
IEEE Forum on Integrated and Sustainable Transportation System (FISTS) is a Forum sponsored jointly by four IEEE Societies: the Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, the Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, the Oceanic Engineering Society, and the Vehicular Technology Society. FISTS offers provocative presentations, lively discussion, and visionary futures about sustainable transportation systems that create economic opportunity and improve access to basic human needs. The Forum-ISTS will bring together major actors in all these areas from all over the world. It is the specific ambition of the conference committee to have high level speakers expressing their views and stimulate an intensive discussion with the audience. The aim of the conference is to stimulate an active debate on what we need to achieve by a sustainable transportation system and what measures have to be taken into account to reach these ambitious goals.
