Paris-Marne La Valée, May, 21-24, 2013
Autonomic Road Transport Support (ARTS) is a COST EU Network, aiming to build up a community investigating the underlying principles, feasibility and implications of self-managing road transport systems. As part of that effort the Network will provide the opportunity, through short, intensive training schools, for scientists and engineers to build up their knowledge and motivation to start a career in this area.
The Training School is aimed particularly at early career researchers in traffic engineering, computer science and transport studies, providing intensive training to research students and re-training professions. The course will cover principles, techniques and applications concerned with embedding autonomic properties into road traffic control systems.
The objective will be to give attendees:
– a grounding in the (a) modelling of road traffic (b) the principles of autonomic systems (c) techniques relevant to the implementation of autonomic properties in systems, including agent based and traditional artificial intelligence-based approaches
– an appreciation of (a) the challenges in effective road traffic support (b) relevant current and past research (c) potential and implications of autonomic systems Organisation
Who should attend?
Graduated and PhD students, researchers and young professionals who have a background in Computing/Engineering, with some previous knowledge of Road Transport Systems and ITS.
