Dr. Meead Saberi was invited as a speaker at the International Workshop on Data Science and Smart Transportation Informatics at Tongji University, Shanghai, China. The workshop was co-chaired by Prof. Chao Yang and Prof. Satish Ukkusuri. The workshop aimed to explore a multidisciplinary perspective to big data science in urban transportation. As part of the program, Dr. Saberi gave a talk on "Data-Driven Smart Cities: Urban Revival Through Big and Open Data Visualization and Spatio-Temporal Analytics". Special thanks to Chao and his colleagues at Tongji University for their great hospitality.
On July 2-3, 2016, we hosted the Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics Committee Midyear Meeting (TFT2016) in Sydney. PhD students, Sajjad Shafiei and Frank Gu, presented their PhD research progress in a poster session. Also, Dr. Meead Saberi co-presented with Dr. Jiwon Kim on clustering pedestrian trajectories to identify self-organized lanes. The symposium was a great opportunity to meet with the traffic flow theory research community.
