TSU (Transport Studies Unit)
International Workshop on
Transport Networks under Hazardous Conditions

1st -2nd March 2013 @ Sabo Kaikan, Tokyo, Japan



Objectives:
Effects of traffic incident and natural disaster become more serious in modern information oriented society. Transport network management methods should be further developed that would mitigate the social damage in the hazardous conditions. The aim of this international workshop is to exchange the knowledge and experience of the researchers and practitioners in the field of transport network studies under hazardous conditions. The topics of the workshop cover wide range of transport studies; data collection, behavioural analysis, network flow modeling, risk analysis and management.
