UrbanSim Workshop

Date & Location

4-6 July 2011

National Technical University of Athens

The SustainCity EU-co-funded research project is organizing an UrbanSim Workshop in Athens, Greece on July 4-6, 2011. This will be an excellent opportunity for interested parties from various backgrounds to develop a deeper understanding of UrbanSim.

UrbanSim is a software-based simulation system for supporting planning and analysis of urban development, incorporating the interactions between land use, transportation, the economy, and the environment. It is intended for use by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), cities, counties, non-governmental organizations, researchers and students interested in exploring the effects of infrastructure and policy choices on community outcomes such as motorized and non-motorized accessibility, housing affordability, greenhouse gas emissions, and the protection of open space and environmentally sensitive habitats.

Prof. Paul Waddell (UC Berkeley), who initiated and leads the UrbanSim initiative, will be the main lecturer in this Workshop, along with Dr. C. Antoniou (NTUA) and other colleagues. The Workshop will include lecture-type sessions, as well as interactive lab-sessions during which the participants will be able to install and run UrbanSim in their own laptops.
