SUMO User Conference 2020 - From Traffic Flow to Mobility Modeling (May 11th – 13th, 2020)


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 simulator capable of simulating private and public transport modes, as well as person-based trip chains. Being open source, SUMO is easily extensible by new behavioral models and can be dynamically controlled via a well-defined programming interface. These and other features make SUMO one of the most often used open source traffic simulators with a large and international user community.

Call for Papers

The conference focuses on presenting new and unique results in the field of mobility simulation and modeling using openly available tools and data. We expect a large variety of research topics and usage approaches. If you are working on 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):

Paper Submission

Attention: We changed our paper submission process. We are now offering two submission types:

  1. Scientific Papers:
    • All accepted scientific papers must be presented at the conference.
    • Scientific papers will be reviewed by at least 2 reviewers.
    • All accepted scientific papers will be published in the SUMO proceedings which will be referenced on SCOPUS.
    • Scientific papers must be submitted in LaTeX or Word format before midnight, Friday, January 17th, 2020.
    • Scientific papers should be between 5 and 20 pages long
  2. Technical Presentations:
    • The SUMO conference gives the opportunity to present your topic during the poster session or an oral short presentation.
    • There is no need to write a scientific paper.
    • Possible technical presentations can be:
      • Results of Bachelor or Master theses
      • Live Demos
      • SUMO Use Cases
      • Project Presentations
      • Work in Progress which would benefit from the feedback of other SUMO users
