The 2018 MATSim User Meeting will be held on 23 June, 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia USA. That is the Saturday before the Transportation Research Board’s bi-annual “Innovations in Travel Modeling” conference, which is June 24-27, 2018.

Abstracts and/or short papers are due on November 30, 2017 December 11, 2017. The papers are expected to be very short (< 2500 equivalent words), but the deadline is fast approaching. ITM has an alternative “lightning talk” track which is quite interesting and only requires an abstract submission. See below for details.

Abstracts and papers can be submitted to the ITM conference, to the MATSim Meeting, or both. We will coordinate with the main conference so that papers are not presented twice.

Submissions directly for the User Meeting should take the form of an abstract (< 1000 words), and are to be submitted before March 31, 2018, through EasyChair.

MATSim-related submissions to the main conference will as well be considered for inclusion in the User Meeting program. 

Please feel free to forward this information to any of your contacts, by sharing the link to the EasyChair call for papers:

We wish you a happy and productive year, and hope to meet you in Atlanta!
