Massachusetts Institute of Technology: Summer Courses Announcement

Pubblicato il

Su indicazione del  prof. Pierluigi Coppola, segnaliamo i seguenti corsi estivi che si terranno quest’anno al MIT.

One-week courses at MIT this summer:

Discrete Choice Analysis: Predicting Individual Behavior and Market Demand

https://professional.mit.edu/programs/short-programs/discrete-choice-analysis
June 10 – 14, 2019

Discrete choice models are used in many fields such as economics, engineering, environmental management, marketing, urban planning, and transportation. Most applications are performed offline and often involve stated preferences surveys. This program also covers online applications
where predictions of individual choice behavior are used as inputs for online optimization and personalization.
The course is designed for academics and professionals interested in learning new discrete choice techniques and who wish to acquire in-depth knowledge of the latest developments.

One full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding doctoral student (application deadline is May 1). Multiple partial (50%) tuition scholarships are also available for junior faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.

Transportation Networks and Smart Mobility: Methods and Solutions
(https://professional.mit.edu/programs/short-programs/transportation-networks)
August 5 – 9, 2019

Radical changes in transportation systems have heightened interest in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Smart Mobility, and real-time network management as potential solutions to mitigate congestion issues and improve network efficiency. Transportation researchers have developed data analytics, models and simulation tools for use in the planning, design, and
operations of such systems. However, with the advent of new technologies and services, this program presents the latest developments that are better leveraged to improve system performance.

This program is intended for individuals interested in theory, research and practice, including: professionals in the mobility industry, individuals with experience in transportation consulting, planning and related government agencies, PhD students in transportation systems, civil
engineering, economics, planning and urban mobility, and individuals with backgrounds in traffic engineering, systems engineering, operations management and control systems.

One full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding doctoral student (deadline June 1). Multiple partial (50%) tuition scholarships are also available for junior faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.
