Traffic management has become a key quality of life issue for national, state and local authorities across the world. The energy, environmental and economic crises many of our citizens are experiencing is motivating the scientific community to engage in research aimed at addressing the negative impacts of traffic congestion towards achieving sustainable mobility goals.
In addition, roads safety is also a priority issue. Every year thousands die in the roads, and there are many public institutions funding research projects in order to reduce that numbers.
In this context multiple research groups are exploring different approaches aiming at a better understanding of driver behavior, the resulting traffic dynamics, and on strategies to improve the efficiency of the roadway infrastructure for all its users, be it drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or transit riders.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers, mainly from academia, in an open and informal environment, in order to share results, to discuss solutions and to plan future research initiatives.
