Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics Committee (ACP50)
The summer meeting of the Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics Committee of the Transportation Research Board will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from July 26th–28th. The summer meeting will be organized by the Delft University of Technology in cooperation with AMS, the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions.
The summer meeting will be organized right after the TRAIL summer course “AI and Traffic Flow Theory” (24–26th July 2023), a course with tutorials and hackathons aimed at PhDs with a basic background in traffic flow theory.
The main theme of the summer meeting will be urban traffic operations for resilient cities. With urbanization and the densification of cities being important trends, traffic operations in cities are becoming increasingly important. Next to its relevance, the scientific challenges related to urban traffic are daunting, for instance, due to its complexity and its multi–modal nature. The summer meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to bring together scholars and professionals to discuss research ideas and share relevant research findings. Three plenary talks are expected; more information will be provided in the coming months on the TFTC website.
