Event Details/Other Comments:

There has been a significant body of research on making urban transportation more efficient and sustainable. Planning of urban transportation services is challenging due to the crowded traffic infrastructure, increasing customer expectations and rules set by municipalities. In recent years, a vast amount of data on the environment of urban transportation services has become available, e.g., travel times and customer demand data. With this workshop, we aim at bringing together researchers from the often-distinct fields of urban transportation and analytics in order to discuss recent optimization approaches and how they can benefit from the increasing amount of detailed data.

The 2015 TSL workshop will consist of talks dealing with recent applications of urban transportation such as home delivery planning, shared mobility services, environmental-friendly deliveries, and city logistics concepts in general. This includes state-of-the-art approaches from network design, dynamic and stochastic vehicle routing, and transportation planning. We are also interested in recent advances in the use of analytics for optimization of urban transportation, covering forecasting of customer demand, prognosis of travel times and emissions, data aggregation, and how to include that information in state-of-the-art optimization techniques.
