  • The 1st Symposium on Management of Future motorway and urban Traffic Systems (MFTS 2016), which was organized and partly sponsored in the frame of the TRAMAN21 project, was successfully held in Chania, Greece, on June 2-3, 2016. The Symposium gathered 88 participants from 21 countries from around the globe. A number of 47 invited presentations, including two invited keynote presentations, were held by distinguished researchers in the area. The Symposium focused on future traffic management systems, covering the subjects of traffic control, estimation, and modelling of motorway and urban networks, with particular emphasis on the presence of advanced vehicle communication and automation technologies. The full Program and Book of Abstracts may be downloaded at this LINK.
    The Scientific Committee decided that this Symposium would be the first in a series of bi-annual symposia on this highly relevant topic, and the next 2nd Symposium on Management of Future motorway and urban Traffic Systems (MFTS 2018) will be held at the JRC (European Commission’s Joint Research Centre), Ispra, Italy.
    All members of TRAMAN21 participated to the Sysmposium and the following presentations were delivered: "Optimal lane-changing control at motorway bottlenecks" (Claudio Roncoli), "Applications of nonlinear adaptive control to local and coordinated ramp metering" (Maria Kontorinaki), "On macroscopic modelling of ACC/CACC traffic flows" (Anargiros Delis), "Using motion planning techniques as a means to improve traffic flow" (Ioannis Ntousakis), "Feedback-based integrated motorway traffic flow control" (Ioannis Papamichail).
