EU Door-to-Door Mobility Workshop – Abstracts

  • Session 1. Challenges of a data-driven model

The current state of mobility in Europe – University of Westminster
The foundations of the DATASET2050 model are described in this presentation, along with some of the corresponding data sources used in its construction. Using mobility, we show roughly how far from the target we are currently in Europe, with optimistic and less optimistic scenarios. We present the order of magnitude of the trip segments and introduce the main problematic. Finally, we have a brief look at how uncertainty is playing a key role right now in transportation with the creation of buffers – pure interplay between supply and demand.

Meeting the passenger’s demand: current and future – Bauhaus Luftfahrt
This presentation illustrates the passenger-centric approach taken within the DATASET2050 project by developing current demand profiles. It elaborates different aspects influencing passenger demand such as age, income, household structure, or technological affinity. Based on the analysis of European data, a range of passenger profiles and respective characteristics are derived. These determine the requirements passengers have during their journey and hence the time spent in different processes. Furthermore, data on European mobility behaviour yields different archetype journeys for these passengers.

Developing a new model for European mobility – Innaxis
The DATASET2050 mobility model is a mathematical framework aiming to represent the European door-to-door transportation network. The model has a stochastic approach inherited from complex networks theory, but is ultimately implemented using data science tools. This presentation will address how journey lengths are estimated as an aggregation of multiple random sub-processes and how decision networks are driven by stochastic supply and demand profiles. Several candidate mobility metrics will also be discussed and how the model can be used, to some extent, to analyse future scenarios.

  • Session 2. Further exploring the journey process phase by phase – where are the efficiency gains?

Door-to-kerb – Prof. Dr. Kai Nagel, Technical University of Berlin
The MATSim (Multi Agent Transport Simulation) project is involved with the microscopic simulation of individual travellers at the regional or even national scale. The approach starts from a synthetic population where real humans are replaced by statistical equivalents, builds full daily schedules for them, and follows them through their day with a special focus on the transport system. The system also allows us to run detailed analysis tasks; for example, investigating the accessibility of households to all kinds of services by all means of transport. Clearly, it would also be possible to follow synthetic persons from home or workplace to an airport, or from airport to workplace or home. This presentation will demonstrate current capabilities and discuss possible extensions to MATSim.

Kerb-to-gate – Dr. Genovefa Kefalidou, Horizon 2020 PASSME project
Understanding passenger, airports and airlines’ needs promptly, transforming them into intelligence and adjusting services based on this intelligence is now even more demanding. PASSME is an EU-Horizon 2020-funded project in which we aim to provide innovations to modern journey challenges while at airports. We work on innovations to enhance passengers’ experiences (including reducing stress), providing real-time personalised information, improving interiors and luggage flow and forecasting passenger flow. We identify that passenger needs intertwine strongly with airport and airline needs, manifesting opportunities to build a relationshipamongst all these stakeholders through the use of mobile, back-end and situated innovations. This relationship demands to be maintained throughout the different airport touch points (e.g. kerb-to-gate) to facilitate and optimise the journey process as knock-on effects are transferred between phases, often causing further delays and dissatisfaction.

Gate-to-gate – Steve Williams, NATS
This presentation considers a selection of SESAR concepts, considering changes from flight plans to business trajectories and from distance-based to time-based spacing, also including extended arrival management horizons and system-wide information management (SWIM). It considers the relevance of SESAR to future transport goals: what could SESAR provide to other transport modes, what are the limitations, and why are the limitations unlikely to change? The importance of air traffic management data accuracy is also discussed, and why data are much more precise once an aircraft has left the ground.

  • Session 3. Looking ahead to 2035 and 2050

Futures near and far – Christoph Schneider, Munich Airport
There are many potentially disrupting developments that add a lot of uncertainty when it comes to predicting mobility in 2035. The ACARE mobility vision does not contradict any of these trends. The European aviation market may appear to mature wrt growth rates, but absolute growth will most likely still be huge. Airport capacity is set to be the limiting factor with little hope of being coped with. Munich Airport is very actively engaged in activities to increase capacity, improve intermodality and enhance passenger experience by innovative digital products – these areas are common denominators for mobility in 2035.

ECCS’14 Satellite Event

ECCS’14 will be a major international conference and event in the area of complex systems and interdisciplinary science in general. It will offer unique opportunities to study novel scientific approaches in a multitude of application areas.

The ComplexWorld Network ECCS Satellite Meeting: Complexity Science and Transport Systems

[success] PROGRAMME NOW AVAILABLE [/success]

Following the events organised at the ECCS ’11 in Vienna, ECCS ’12 in Brussels and ECCS ’13 in Barcelona, we’re announcing the Call for Papers for a half-day Satellite Meeting in Lucca. The aim of this Satellite Meeting is to create a space for exchanging state-of-the-art results and ideas about (i) how different Complex Systems tools such as complex networks, percolation theory, self-organized criticality or agent based modeling can be used to understand the internal dynamics of transportation systems, (ii) how to model the relationships between different transportation modes, and (iii) how to improve efficiency and performance of such systems.

The intended audience of this Satellite Meeting is twofold. On one hand, it consists of researchers from the field of Complexity Science, which are expected give insight on the application of complex system tools and concepts to transportation systems. On the other hand, researchers specialised in Transportation systems will be encouraged to attend in order to give their contribution and see how such systems can be investigated with methodologies which are not currently recognized as mainstream. The main success of the meeting will be to foster an interdisciplinary forum of discussion between the two research communities.

A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

– Topological properties of transportation systems, and the relations between topology and efficiency / resilience / propagation of disturbances.

– Dynamics of and on transportation systems: from movements of persons and goods, up to diseases and information spreading mechanisms.

– Emerging behaviors and critical phase transitions in transportation systems.

– Applications of multi-layer and time-varying network representations, statistically validated networks and community detection algorithms.

ComplexWorld Workshop 4. Complex Metrics in ATM

4th ComplexWorld Workshop. Stockholm, Thursday 28th of November 2013

Classical (key performance indicators) and non-classical metrics.
This year, as part of its Knowledge Development activities, the WP_E ComplexWorld Network is organizing a number of workshops on topics related to “Complexity and ATM”. The main objective is to advance the contents of the ComplexWorld Position Paper (which you can find in the ComplexWorld Wiki).

We now announce the fifth workshop (WS5), called “Complex Metrics in ATM”, which will take place in Stockholm, on Thursday 28 November 2013, from 14:00 to 17:30 h. The workshop is run alongside the SESAR Innovation Days  Conference, taking place during the last day of the conference, in order to minimize additional travel and allow those of you already participating in SID to attend.

The objective of these Workshops is twofold:

  1. To advance the knowledge development carried out by the ComplexWorld Network, and;
  2. To involve WP-E Projects and PhDs in the maintenance of the state-of-the-art on “Complex Metrics in ATM”.

We use the term ‘classical’ metrics to denote those that are pre-defined (such as average aircraft delay), are univariate (derived from one variable in the data), and do not draw on complexity science techniques. Some of these types of metric are already commonly in use (such as, indeed, average aircraft delay), whilst others are not (such as average passenger delay) – and, arguably, thus conspicuous by their absence.

‘Non-classical’ metrics are defined to include both (non-complexity) ‘derived’ metrics, which are in contrast to the classical metrics in that they are not (fully) pre-defined, but are derived from the data iteratively and are typically multivariate, and those drawn from complexity science. An example of a derived metric is a factor obtained as the result of factor analysis An example of a (simple) complexity metric is the degree of a node (e.g. number of connections from and to an airport). With regard to the metrics, the workshop will focus on the non-classical metrics set and its subset, complexity metrics. Data mining techniques may be applied not only to generate non-classical metrics, but also in topology characterization, such as identifying complex network communities (groups of densely connected nodes, sharing only few connections with nodes outside their group). These techniques are not needed to calculate classical metrics.

We consider that this topic will be of special interest for the projects and PhD students listed below, but if you think that the topic is interesting for your field of research or linked to your expertise, we welcome your participation in our workshop. The WP-E Projects which might be targeted by WS5 are: e.g. CASSIOPEIA, ComplexityCosts, ELSA, NEWO, POEM, TREE, and the PhDs are those relating to complex metrics

If you are interested in attending or would like to know more, please contact
Prof. Hartmut Helmke, DLR (Hartmut.Helmke@dlr.de).

Send us your inputs for the workshop. What should be discussed? Which items should be fixed in the state-of-the-art on “Complex Metrics in ATM”?.

We will update this website with your inputs which will serve to collaboratively schedule the agenda.

ECCS’13 Satellite Event

eccs2013

Update: The Call for Papers deadline has been extended to June 23, 2013.

ECCS 2013

ECCS’13 will be a major international conference and event in the area of complex systems and interdisciplinary science in general. It will offer unique opportunities to study novel scientific approaches in a multitude of application areas. Two days of the conference, 18 and 19 of September, are reserved for satellite meetings, which will cover a broad range of subjects on all aspects of Complex Systems, as reflected by the conference tracks.

The ComplexWorld Network ECCS Satellite Meeting: Complexity Science and Transport Systems

In continuation of the ComplexWorld Network’s previous and highly successful ECCS satellite meetings: Complexity and the Future of Transportation Systems, ECCS 2011; and Complexity Paradigms for Smart, Green and Integrated Transport, ECCS ’12, the ComplexWorld Network will this year again host a satellite meeting focused on the topic of transport systems and Complexity Science.

Titled, accordingly, Complexity Science and Transport Systems, the ECCS 2013 satellite event will assess the problems of transportation systems through Complex Systems theory and methodologies, paying particular attention to generating new ideas and solutions that can be applied to current, real-life transport systems to improve their performance.

Transportation systems are composed of a large number of heterogeneous elements, interacting, perceiving different information from the environment, and pursuing heterogeneous/different aims. Examples range from very well known systems, like road traffic dynamics, up to new fields, such as Air Transport Networks. Plenty of examples can be found in the literature about how different Complex Systems tools can be used to understand the internal dynamics of transport systems: from Complex Networks, up to percolation and self-organization.

The objective of this satellite meeting is to create a space for exchanging state-of-the-art results between Complex Science and Transport System researchers, fostering an interdisciplinary forum of discussion, and the generation of new ideas and approaches.

Following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

  • Topological properties of transportation systems, and the relations between topology and efficiency / resilience / propagation of disturbances.
  • Dynamics of and on transportation systems: from movements of persons and goods, up to diseases and information spreading mechanisms.
  • Emerging behaviors and critical phase transitions in transportation systems.
  • Applications of multi-layer and time-varying network representations.
  • Statistically validated networks and community detection algorithms.
  • Smart, Green and Integrated Transport.

ComplexWorld Workshop 3. Air Transport Network: an integrated view

3rd ComplexWorld Workshop. Barcelona, Friday 20th of September 2013.

Finding air transport solutions through complex network theory and intermodal transport concepts

This year, as part of its Knowledge Development activities, the WP_E ComplexWorld Network is organizing  a number of workshops on topics related to “Complexity and ATM”. The main objective is to advance the contents of the ComplexWorld Position Paper (which you can find in the ComplexWorld Wiki).

We now announce the third workshop (WS3), called “Air Transport Network: an Integrated View”, which will take place in Barcelona, on Friday 20 September 2013, from 09:00 to 14:00 h. The workshop is run alongside the ECCS 2013 Conference, taking place the day that the conference ends, in order to minimise additional travel as some of you may be participating in ECCS.

To analyse the air transport network (be it at a regional, national, trans-national or at a global level), it is best to abstract and integrate the various complex and heterogeneous ATM elements in a way that allows the assessment of properties of interest without needing to include too much detail (which would be impractical or even impossible if dealing with the whole ATM system). A good framework that can help to develop these models is complex network theory. Complex networks have proven themselves to be very useful in diverse applications, as very diverse systems often share similar characteristics when viewed at a network level. This suggests the possible existence of universal mechanisms of organization. In this workshop, we will discuss applications of Complex Network Theory to the Air Transport Network.

Another subject that will be covered in this workshop is the capacity to combine different modes of transport (intermodality). Doing this in a flexible way is one of the cornerstones of the “sustainable mobility” concept, which underlies European transport policy. The intermodality of transport, which enables national transport networks to be integrated, is being promoted and implemented through European programmes such as ‘Marco Polo’. Trans-European networks, in the form of infrastructure projects of common interest, also aim to improve the intermodality of transport. Specifically, they aim to stimulate investment in order to foster the emergence of an integrated transport network covering the entire community and encompassing all the different modes of transport.

If you are interested in attending or would like to know more, please contact Prof. Damian Rivas, University of Seville (drivas@us.es).
