Transport Modelling stream announced for this years ETC 2017
Once again the programme is packed full of what modellers are interested in with up to 3 full parallel modelling streams. There are also joint sessions with other programme committees on particular subjects, bringing you the latest research, studies, guidelines, thinking, ideas on transport modelling methods and their application to real-world problems.
Come to learn, keep up to date, contribute your ideas, influence others, meet your colleagues, contribute to government guidance and help steer development of transport modelling into the future. We have a whole day on National Travel Survey Methods; another on Big Data with the latest developments on Origin-Destination matrix building and another on Agent Based modelling with case studies the latest in Agent, Lifestyle and Activity Based modelling techniques and applications.
Other sessions on modelling include:
Connected and autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, mobility as a service
Car ownership, land use,
Travel including new UK Government work on air travel; air quality
National and other big models of Zimbabwe, Europe, Germany, Ireland and Paris
Macroscopic, mesoscopic and microscopic traffic assignment and simulation, dynamic tolling
Cycling innovation, pedestrian micro-simulation
Artificial intelligence, neural networks and deep learning
As well as the whole parallel 2-day conference on the Value of Time and Perception. Lots to do!

Travel and accommodation
As Barcelona is a prime location for business and pleasure, we recommend that ETC attendees book their travel and accommodation as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If you need help sourcing accommodation, we have a limited number of rooms reserved in several venues in and around the city and will be able to forward these details to you.
