Save the Date: September 13-15, 2021
Traffic simulations are of
immense importance for researchers as well as practitioners in the field of
transportation. SUMO has been available since 2001 and provides a wide range of
traffic planning and simulation applications. SUMO consists of a suite of tools
covering road network imports and enrichment, demand generation and assignment,
and a state-of-the-art microscopic traffic simulator capable of simulating
private and public transport modes, as well as person-based trip chains. Being
open source, SUMO is easily extensible by new behavioral models and can be
dynamically controlled via a well-defined programming interface. These and
other features make SUMO one of the most often used open source traffic
simulators with a large and international user community.
The conference focuses on
presenting new and unique results in the field of mobility simulation and
modeling using openly available tools and data. We expect a large variety of
research topics and usage approaches. If you are working on a research project
fitting the topics below, you are kindly invited to submit an abstract.
Possible areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Mobility and Demand
- Traffic Simulation
- Open Tools and Open Data
- Modelling Urban Mobility
- Traffic Applications
- Traffic Management
- Intermodal Transport
- Autonomous Driving
- Logistics Simulation
- Vehicular Communication
- Reinforcement learning /
We changed our paper submission process. We are now offering two submission
1) Scientific Papers:
- All accepted scientific papers must be
presented at the conference.
- Scientific papers will be reviewed by at
least 2 reviewers.
- All accepted scientific papers will be
published in the SUMO proceedings.
- Scientific papers must be submitted in
LaTeX or Word format before midnight, Monday, May 3rd, 2021.
- Scientific papers should be between 5 and
20 pages long.
2) Technical Presentations:
- The SUMO conference gives the opportunity
to present your topic during the poster session or an oral short
- There is no need to write a scientific
- Possible technical presentations can be:
- Results of Bachelor or Master theses
- Live Demos
- SUMO Use Cases
- Project Presentations
- Work in Progress which would benefit from
the feedback of other SUMO users
- Title and a short abstract (300 words)
must be submitted until Monday,
May 3rd, 2021.
- Paper and Abstract Submission Deadline: Monday, May 3rd, 2021.
