From 06/07/2020 to 08/07/2020

9h30 - 18h

(Luxembourg (Virtual Event) )

The program for the upcoming two-day virtual 3rd Symposium on Management of Future Motorway and Urban Traffic Systems has been conceived to allow registered participants to select a topic, listen to the latest research trends and be engaged on thematic discussions. The format chosen offer the sessions as a set of self-standing events.

Each session will end with a 40-45 minutes panel discussion where members of the MFTS scientific community will interact with the public on specific aspects related to the Future of Transport and Mobility, and to provide general conclusions on the topics discussed by the symposium speakers.

In addition to the thematic sessions, keynote speakers Dr. Tom Alkim from the European Commission, and Prof. Geroliminis from EPFL will contribute to the synopsium.

The event is free but registration is mandatory. Only registered participants will receive the links to the thematic sessions.

The event will be recorded so that participants can enjoy the event also offline. A dedicated download page will be open in our website shortly before the event.
