SUMO User Conference 2020

October 26-28 | From Traffic Flow to Mobility Modeling

Important notice
Participation at this year’s conference will be free of charge!
Due to the Coronavirus crisis and the measures imposed, the SUMO User Conference 2020 is going to be virtual. Save the date: 26-28 October 2020.


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.

Call for Papers

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 Modelling
  • Traffic Simulation
  • Open Tools and Open Data
  • Modelling Urban Mobility
  • Traffic Applications
  • Traffic Management Solutions
  • Intermodal Transport
  • Autonomous Driving
  • Logistics Simulation
  • Vehicular Communication
  • E-Mobility

Paper Submission
