    I could not find any details on this course either here or on ANT website. Are there any updates on this? Thank you.

  2. Hi,

    we will update a program in March. Since it will be only a one-day workshop, the focus will be on getting started with MATSim, using VIA and possibly getting started with custom-made scenario analysis.
