Av. Complutense, 30, 28040 Madrid (Spain)


prof. dr. ir. Ansar YASAR



On Monday, May 23, 2016, the seventh edition of the international Conference ANT will take place in Madrid (Spain). The four-day conference will bring together scientists, engineers and managers from across the world to discuss the latest findings in ‘Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies’ within eighteen workshops.

The Transportation Research Institute organizes the workshop ABMTRANS (Agent-based Mobility, Traffic and Transportation Models, Methodologies and Applications), which will be held for the fifth time. During this workshop, new research results and novel ideas related to the practice of agent-based traffic and transportation will be presented. What are the latest technological developments?

IMOB received over 200 submissions and selected nine papers:

  • Dominik Ziemke (TU Berlin VSP), Kai Nagel (TU Berlin VSP) and Rolf Moeckel (Modeling Spatial Mobility, TU München) – Towards an agent-based, integrated land-use transport modeling system
  • Glenn Cich (IMOB), Luk Knapen (IMOB), Stéphane Galland (UBFC – UTBM), Jan Vuurstaek (IMOB), An Neven (IMOB) en Tom Bellemans (IMOB) - Towards an Agent-based Model for Demand-Responsive Transport Serving Thin Flows
  • Ihad Kaddoura en Kai Nagel (VSP – TU Berlin) – Agent-based congestion pricing and transport routing with heterogeneous values of travel time savings
  • Jeroen van der Gun, Adam Pel and Bart van Arem (Delft University of Technology) – Propagating agents with macroscopic dynamic network loading: challenges and possible solutions
  • Koen Mommens, Tom van Lier and Cathy Macharis (MOBI Vrije Universiteit Brussel) – Loading Unit in Freight Transport Modelling
  • Luca Pappalardo (University of Pisa), Salvatore Rinzivillo (ISTI, CNR) en Filippo Simini (University of Bristol) – Human mobility modelling: exploration and preferential return meet the gravity model
  • Mallory Crow (University of Akron), William Schneider (University of Akron), William Holik (Texas A&M Transportation Institute) and Christopher Miller (University of Akron) – Agent-based cost model of inclement ambient weather and transportation maintenance data for budgetary decision making
  • Nadav Levy and Eran Ben-Elia (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) – Emergence of system optimum: A fair and altruistic agent-based route-choice model
  • Theresa Thunig and Kai Nagel (TU Berlin VSP) – Braess’s paradox in an agent-based transport model

After the conference, all papers will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line.
