Event description

Description

A free full day workshop to showcase the range of research and practise being carried out in transport studies and planning using system dynamics (SD) as a modelling method, designed to:

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

Transportation systems are complex, involving multiple agents or stakeholders, and there are many different feedbacks and time lags between responses of users, developers, operators and policy makers. System dynamics models not only offer a different perspective with a whole system approach to transport planning but also demonstrate to policy makers the importance of these feedbacks and lagged responses. The system dynamics platforms also offer specialised tools and approaches for hybridisation with other simulation techniques which aid in the understanding of the whole underlying system, calibration of models, optimisation of policies and ease of use through flight simulators.


Abstracts for either oral or poster presentations are invited. Note that full papers are not required.

300 Word Abstract: January 31st 2018
