Traffic and Cellular Automata

5th Workshop on TCA - Traffic and Cellular Automata

Cellular Automata are powerful tools for modeling complex systems used in various research fields. One of the growing topics for the last few decades is traffic modeling, which includes vehicular traffic on highway networks, city traffic with signal control and public conveyance. The investigation of such systems is important for both practical and scientific reasons. Reducing traffic congestion contributes to economic efficiency and modeling of traffic flow allows for new insights into nonequilibrium systems of self-driven particles. The aim of this workshop is to bring together interdisciplinary researchers studying traffic-related topics, and discuss methods for modeling, analysis and practical applications. Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • traffic modeling (highway and urban traffic, public transport etc.)
  • analytical methods
  • computer simulations
  • empirical results, experiments and data analysis (machine learning etc.)
  • traffic control
  • engineering applications
  • traffic networks
  • related systems (biological transport, granular flow etc.)

Submissions should be perfomed via easychair
