Workshop "Road Traffic Flow: Analysis, Optimization and Control"

Oct 21 - Oct 22


Road Traffic Flow - Analysis, Optimization and Control

Transportation plays a pivotal role in a society's economic and social welfare. Overly congested road traffic networks account for several billions of euros in cost, in the Netherlands alone. Since congestion itself can have many different causes (e.g., too much traffic, accidents, and bad network design), it is an inherently interesting and important topic for multiple scientific research areas, ranging from social sciences to civil engineering, mathematics and physics. Each area focuses on their favorite topics and yields interesting and important insights that lead to effective measures to control traffic flows and optimize transportation network performance.

To encourage interaction and collaboration between road-traffic researchers, we are hosting an engaging two-day workshop entitled "Road Traffic Flow: Analysis,  Optimization, and Control" at the workshop institute Eurandom at Eindhoven University of Technology on October 21st and 22nd. The main goal of this workshop is to stimulate the cross-disciplinary collaboration between scientific areas that focus on similar problems, like civil engineering and operations research, which can lead to a synergy that is beneficial for all road traffic research.

The presentations during the workshop will mostly be given by researchers from the Netherlands, ranging from PhD students to full professors, supplemented with  keynote and tutorial presentations from internationally renowned scientists.


With more and more Covid-related restrictions in the Netherlands being eased or abandoned, we expect that the workshop can take place physically at Eurandom in October and that we can all meet one another in person. Therefore, we aim for such a fully on-campus event. In the case that governmental measures and/or measures from the TU/e that are in place by that time do not allow for such an event, the workshop format will either be changed to a hybrid or a fully online event. We will of course keep you up-to-date on those matters and relevant changes in the format.
