Transport Modelling Forum 2009 : Changing Requirements and Challenging Times
10 June 2009 - Chelsea Football Club, London
23 Apr 2009 (provided by Local Transport Today), Category: Modelling
For the 4th Annual Transport Modelling Forum we have chosen the theme ‘Changing Requirements and Challenging Times’. We have established an exciting line-up of top-class speakers in the field, who will each deal with one of the many issues facing the transport modelling profession including:
- Gavin Gaunt, Head of the NATA refresh at the Department for Transport
- Charlene Rohr, Director of Modelling RAND
- Dr Denvil Coombe, Principle of the Denvil Coombe Practice
- Dr Gerard Whelan the Divisional Director and Steve Lowe, MVA
- Prof Andrew Daly University of Leeds
- Clare Lindsay, Technical Director and Dr Ian Williams, WSP
- Andrew Potter the Divisional Director at Mouchel
Last years Transport Modelling Forum challenged the way in which we view our existing transport systems and their performance. We discussed the need to review the way in which we traditionally carry out modelling.
Are new models required? How do newer models interface with the existing ones, in which we have invested so much in terms of data, methodological development and software?
We cannot ignore the challenges brought by the recession or assume that growth in travel demand is a certainty. Does that mean that forecasted figures in databases like TEMPRO are still credible?
New modes such as high-speed rail at a national scale as well as the carbon challenge provide more problems to solve. Can our existing toolkit provide the answers?
