The 2nd International BinN Research Seminar “Advanced activity model for capturing dynamic changes” will be held on September 27th and 28th. We invite Prof. Shlomo Bekhor, who belongs to Israel Institute of Technology and studies on transportation planning, network optimization and behavioral models. Prof. Bekhor will lecture about an advanced behavior modelling and an activity-based model on Sept 27. Three young researchers will talk about their recently studies about behaviors with observations, built environments and interactions on Sept 28 and discuss with Prof. Bekhor and audiences.

In this decade, activity-based models based on a series of choices have become progressively popular. Activity-based models are able to illustrate and evaluate personal activities and their traffic environments. The models have been implemented for various policy applications. For the highly precise application, activity-based models integrate with accurate observations and predictions of traffic states under dynamic situation. We try to develop an advanced activity model based on previous researches. In this seminar, we want to discuss about the direction of advanced activity theory.
