SUMO 2016 – Traffic, Mobility, and Logistics 

May 24+25, 2016 – Berlin-Adlershof, Germany

Traffic simulations are of immense importance for researchers as well as practitioners in the field of transportation. SUMO has been available since 2001 and provides a wide range of traffic planning and simulation applications. SUMO consists of a suite of tools covering road network imports and enrichment, demand generation and assignment and a state-of-the-art microscopic traffic simulation capable to simulate private and public transport modes, as well as person-based trip chains. Being open source, SUMO is ready to implement new behavioral models or to control the simulation remotely using various programming environments. These and other features make SUMO one of the most often used open source traffic simulations with a large and international user community.

Call for Papers

The conference aims on presenting new and unique results in the field of mobility simulation and modelling using openly available tools and data. We expect a large variety of research topics and usage approaches. If you are doing a research project fitting the topics below you are kindly invited to submit an abstract. Possible areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Traffic Simulation
    • Logistics Simulation
    • Mobility Modelling
    •  Intermodal Transport
    • Traffic Applications
    • Traffic Management Solutions
    • Vehicular Communication
    • Modelling Urban Mobility
    • Open Tools and Open Data
    • E-Mobility

All accepted papers will be printed and published in the SUMO proceedings in the scientific series of the DLR Institute of Transportation Systems.


The full paper versions must be submitted in Word and PDF format before midnight, Friday, 26th of February 2016.
The final papers should be between 5 and 20 pages long. Authors are requested to register to Easy Chair .
