Proceedings of the Workshop on Traffic Modeling: Traffic Behavior and Simulation

Approximately 50 traffic modelers, software developers and model users met in Graz, Austria, June 30 – July 2, 2008, to: (1) review the current states of the art and practice in traffic modeling; (2) assess future needs for traffic models and their applications; and (3) identify directions for further research and model development. To meet the objectives of the three-day workshop, the program included several invited and contributed talks discussing the current state of the art and practice and new research results. The conference covered the following topics: (1) driver behavior modeling: lane changing and merging; (2) driver behavior modeling: route choice in traffic assignment theories for traffic flow models; (3) data collection, calibration and validation of models; (4) modeling safety and environmental considerations; (5) modeling non-motorized transport; and (6) modeling vehicle to infrastructure factors.
