21st Summer Course (Behavior Modeling in Transportation Networks)

The Summer Course was held on September 23rd to 25th, 2022 for both online and on-site participants at the University of Tokyo Hongo Campus. Students and researchers from different universities and organizations gathered to join the event. The 3-day course provided a vast knowledge of different behavior modeling techniques for transportation networks and insights from keynote speakers, professors, and researchers.
