About the Conference

Jointly hosted by INRO and Oregon Metro, we look forward to this North American edition of our Users’ Conference series as a great opportunity to share recent experiences and new perspectives on transportation planning methods and applications with leading practitioners, colleagues and friends, and to discuss what’s new and what’s next in Emme transportation forecasting, Dynameq multiscale traffic simulation and CityPhi visual analytics software.

This year's technical presentations cover a range of relevant transportation modeling, traffic simulation and visualization topics, as well as thought-provoking keynote addresses from Rick Donnelly "Catching the Third Big Wave in Travel Forecasting" and on the second day from Peter Vovsha "Recent Advances in Integrated Mode Choice and Assignment Procedures".
