Event description
The SD Soc T-SIG invite you to attend their third annual workshop on system dynamics in transportation.

About this Event

The System Dynamics Society Special Interest Group in Transportation (SDS T-SIG) are pleased to announce that the 3rd Annual Workshop on System Dynamics in Transportation Modelling will take place in Palermo (Italy) on April 16th – 17th 2020, hosted by the Department DEMS & CED4 – System Dynamics Group, University of Palermo.

Following from our two previous successful events, this free workshop will consist of a mix of presentations, practical sessions and network / sharing / collaboration building opportunities as well as the SDS T-SIG Annual Meeting. Participants do not need to be a SDS T-SIG member to present or attend.

The intention of the workshop is to showcase the range of research and practise being carried out in transport studies and planning using system dynamics (SD) as a modelling method, and it is designed to:

  • Promote the role of SD in transportation;
  • Facilitate communication and collaboration in transportation and SD;
  • Share teaching materials, works in progress, best practise case studies and state-of-the-art use of SD in transportation research and planning.

Abstracts are now invited for presentations that demonstrate both the potential and success of system dynamics in transport related research, to provoke discussion of conceptual issues through to fully tried-and-tested models. Topics can cover any aspect of transportation, such as:

  • Freight and logistics,
  • Development of new technologies or business models,
  • Smart transportation systems,
  • Reduction of transport's carbon footprint,
  • Transport and urban planning policies,
  • Performance measurement in transport operations,
  • Stakeholder engagement in transportation governance,
  • Transport and health
  • Sustainable and equitable policy analysis.

Innovative approaches and cross-fertilisation with alternative forms of modelling (eg agent-based) or new and emerging forms of data are also encouraged. We particularly welcome proposals from MSc and PhD students, and on the theme of validation and calibration that will be the focus of some of our planned activities.

An informal optional dinner will be hosted on the Thursday evening (at participants own expense), and advice can be provided on suitable travel and accommodation (also at participants own expense). The workshop will take place at the University of Palermo, Department DEMS, Via U. A. Amico, 4 Palermo (Italy).

The full workshop programme and timings will be confirmed following the abstract submission process.

TIMELINE:

  • Abstract submission deadline (approx. 250-300 words): February 7th 2020
  • Confirmation of acceptance by: February 14th 2020
  • Speaker registration deadline: March 1st 2020
  • General registration deadline: March 31st 2020

The System Dynamics Society Transportation Special Interest Group has three long-term goals:

  1. The promotion of system dynamics as a tool to analyse transportation systems and policy.
  2. The development of a repository of case studies, models and other resources for practice and teaching.
  3. To spread the use of system dynamics through the transport community both in practice and in academia.
