Summer Program on Transportation Statistics

**Attendance for this event is by invitation only.

Location

This workshop will be held at Information Initiative @ Duke (iiD), West Campus, Duke University.

Description

The SAMSI summer program on transportation statistics will focus on research problems in the areas of safety, pollution, flow modeling, driverless cars, and other vehicle topics. Working with DOT administrators and DOT datasets, the working groups will develop statistical analyses that address the problems that targeted during the first half of the program.

NOTE: Planning for this event is ongoing. For further questions about this program, please send questions to the email address listed below.
