A Stream on Simulation
as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Transportation
4-7 June 2018, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Τechnology & Engineering

The Transportation Engineering Unit of ATINER is organizing a Stream on “Simulation”, 4-7 June 2018, Athens, Greece as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Transportation, sponsored by the Athens Journal of Τechnology & Engineering.

Microsimulation has been proven to be an effective and viable tool for assessing and enhancing traffic operations on roads and streets. There are numerous software available on the market that enabled traffic engineers and transportation planners to conduct evaluations of current and future designs of traffic enhancements. A new and evolving dimension for discrete event simulation is human centered simulation. This is done through utilizing driving simulators to mimic the real world in controlled settings. Advancements in this discipline has been phenomenal especially in the last decade. The affordability of installing sensors on facilities have created the luxury of collecting large data related to the system performance. The use of discrete event simulation software coupled with driving simulators and real time field data have added a new dimension to not only traffic operations but also road safety. This session covers recent research in using simulation to enhance the safety and operations of roads and streets. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to:, using the abstract submission form by the 23 April 2018 to:  Dr. Essam Radwan, Professor and CATSS Director, University of Central Florida, USA. Abstracts should include the following: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, lead a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER (

The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER)was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to:
