Organised Events

  • Dr. Dionysios Theodosis, Prof. Ioannis Papamichail and Prof. Yibing Wang organised a session entitled "Control of Connected and Automated Vehicles in Lane-free Environments" at the 25th IEEE Intern. Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (IEEE-ITSC 2022), held in distributed-hybrid mode at Beijing and Macau, China, September 18 - October 12, 2022. The seesion was chaired by Dr. Dionysios Theodosis. The following papers were presented by Mr. Milad Malekzadeh and Dr. Mehdi Naderi:
    1. Malekzadeh, M., Manolis, D., Papamichail, I., Papageorgiou, M.: Empirical investigation of properties of lane-free automated vehicle traffic.
    2. Naderi, M., Papageorgiou, M., Karafyllis, I., Papamichail, I.: Automated vehicle driving on large lane-free roundabouts.
  • Prof. Ioannis Papamichail together with Prof. Francesco Viti, Prof. Monica Menendez and Prof. Meng Wang were the Guest Editors for the Special Issue on Managing Future Motorway and Urban Traffic Systems, Transportation Research Part C, Vol. 142, Article 103786, 2022. The Special Issue call was initiated after the successful organization of the 3rd Symposium on Management of Future motorway and urban Traffic Systems (MFTS 2020), Luxembourg, July 4-5, 2020.
  • Prof. Anouck Girard (University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, USA), a Fulbright Scholar in the Dynamic Systems and Simulation Laboratory, delivered an online seminar at the Technical University of Crete on "Learning for safety: Two governor-based approaches" on April 6, 2022. You may watch the seminar here.
  • Prof. Yibing Wang (Zhejiang University, China), an external collaborator of TrafficFluid, delivered an online seminar at DSSL on "Urban eco-driving of connected and automated vehicles in traffic-mixed and power-heterogeneous conditions" on September 29, 2021.
  • The 14th edition of the popular Short Course on "Dynamic Traffic Flow Modelling and Control" was held online (for the first time) on 8-19 February 2021 with the TrafficFluid PI, Prof. Markos Papageorgiou, as the Course lecturer. The Short Course was attended by 47 participants, among them 7 TrafficFluid researchers. Participants were from 18 different countries: 8 from Greece, 7 from Italy, 7 from Finland, 5 from Germany, 3 from Switzerland, 3 from Ireland, 2 from Australia, 2 from Croatia, 1 from Slovenia, 1 from Denmark, 1 from Mexico, 1 from U.S.A., 1 from Belgium, 1 from Sweden, 1 from Brazil, 1 from China, 1 from Iran, 1 from India.
  • Dr. Anastasios Kouvelas (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) delivered an online seminar at DSSL on "State estimation and control design for multi-region urban networks" on October 22, 2020.
  • Prof. Ioannis Papamichail organised (together with Prof. Andreas Malikopoulos) an IEEE-ITSC 2020 workshop entitled "Traffic Management for Future Mobility - CAVs in a Mixed Traffic Environment" that was held online on September 20, 2020.
  • As a partner of the INFRAMIX project, DSSL co-organised the INFRAMIX Final Event that was held online on May 26, 2020. Prof. Ioannis Papamichail delivered a presentation on "Traffic Estimation and Control Strategies". The whole TrafficFluid group attended the final webinar. Within INFRAMIX, DSSL was responsible for traffic state estimation and traffic control algorithms, which stem essentially from our ERC project TRAMAN21 and were evaluated in realistic hybrid simulation and, partly, in the field in Spain and Austria.
