In recent years, developing countries like Vietnam are experiencing fast economic growth and associated rapid urbanization. In this context, Hochiminh city, the biggest metropolitan area of Vietnam, has been facing challenges in providing sufficient urban infrastructures and services to meet the needs of the development.
Thanks to the support of German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Vietnamese-German University (VGU), University of Transport and Communications (UTC), and the project team of Real Time Monitoring of Urban Transport - Solutions for Traffic Management and Urban Development in Hanoi (REMON) are delighted to announce the 2nd International Conference on Integrated Modelling of Urban Dynamics and Traffic with a theme on “The Future of Hochiminh City Metropolitan Area” on 24-25 September 2015 at the International Convention & Exhibition Center in Binh Duong New City, Binh Duong Province.
The Conference is a great opportunity for academicians, practitioners and experts worldwide to meet and share the key understanding of urban-transport dynamics and the modeling techniques, and seek for research cooperation opportunities in developing integrated modelling of urban-transport dynamics for developing cities. The outcomes of the conference will be a value added to the state-of-the-art of methods and algorithms used for calibrating, validating, and coupling the models.
The conference is a great opportunity to bring together people who are interested in urban modelling, transport modelling and their integration to support the decision-making and planning processes. Specifically, the conference is aimed to:
• Assess the state-of-the-art of the integrated urban-transport modelling.
• Identify the drivers of urban change and its impacts on traffic and transport system.
• Identify and bridge the gap between state of the art and the state of the practice of integrated urban-transport modelling.
• Assess data availability and introduce technologies for data collection.
• Define scenarios for the future development of Hochiminh city metropolitan area, as well as other major cities in Vietnam.
• Couple and integrate various models that used to simulate urban growths, traffic systems, and pollution outcomes. The state of the practice, the state of the art, deficits, challenges and possible solutions will be discussed.
Conference's final program and proceeding can be found below:
