The Applied Mathematics Research Centre (AMRC) at Coventry University, UK, is proud to announce a Workshop “Networking Transportation Networkers”, taking place Wednesday, September 25th – Thursday, September 26th, 2013.
The Workshop is set up as an informal workshop in order to facilitate the exchange of experience and ideas on transport networks and related issues. On a broader scale it encompasses spatially embedded networks and the dynamics on, or of, these systems.
The Workshop is different from other meetings on transport related problems in that it attempts to consider transportation networks as a medium for collective (emergent) phenomena.
Experts on optimization, evolution and urbanization of transport networks, street pattern formation, dynamic modeling of transport operations, as well as resilience of transport networks against random failures and targeted attacks will present their research at the Workshop.
Speakers from not only the UK, but USA, Sweden, Germany and Spain will attend the event, with delegates from major UK transportation company Centro also attending the workshop.
AMRC (the “Applied Mathematics Research Centre” of Coventry University, who is running the workshop) was founded in 2006 and is now the premier research vehicle for Mathematical Sciences at Coventry University. The AMRC is a priority area for support from the University and has recently rapidly grown to contain 15 permanent staff, 8 of whose primary research interest is Statistical Physics, from a mathematical and computational point of view.
