"COMFORT" is an Associate Team between INRIA project-team NeCS and the Berkeley University project PATH, funded from 2014 to 2016.

Visits & interships

24/09/2014 - 14/12/2014: Visit of Giovanni De Nunzio (Ph.D. student at NeCS team) at PATH, UC Berkeley.

29/10/2014 - 06/11/2014: Visit of Prof. Carlos Canudas de Wit at UC Berkeley.

12/05/2015-15/05/2015: Kibangou visited UC Berkeley during the BIS workshop (Berkeley-Inria-Stanford, May 12-15). During this stay, A. Kibangou participated as a panel member for the panel dedicated to Urban mobility. He had discussions with G. GOMES (UC Berkeley) on different topics about traffic including flow prediction and interfacing traffic micro-simulator such as AIMSUM with Matlab. During this stay, discussions with Bhaskar Krishnamachari (Univ. Southern California) have been started about estimation of origin destination matrices.

015 – 25/11/2015: Visit of Prof. Carlos Canudas de Wit at UC Berkeley (Planned Agenda):
- Meetings with Prof. Horowitz and Dr. Gomes are planned
- Oct 23th Lecture at Institute of Tranpsortation Studies (ITS) and the Transportation Program of the Civil and Enviromental Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley, in the ITS tranpsortation seminar program.
Meetings with the faculty and the students from the ITS and the Path Group.

24/09/2015 - 21/11/2015: Long Program: New Directions in Mathematical Approaches for Traffic Flow Management. Institute of Applied Mathematics (IPAM) UCLA 

A side product of this collaboration is our participation to the IPAM workshops on modeling, estimation and control taking place at LA-USA (UCLA) from Sept-Dec. 2015 organized by the Insitute of Pure and Applied mathematics (IPAM).  Two of our PhD students will participate to this event: A. Ladino (PhD) from NeCS team (3 weeks), and P. Grandinetti (PhD), from NeCS (4 weeks). Also Canudas de Wit will also participate to the estimation and control workshops as a lecturer, and Federica Garin to the control one. People of the Berkeley group (Prof. R. Horowitz, and G. Gomes) participating to the COMFORT project will also be part of these workshops, and will present some of our common results. More information at (here)
