Transportation Virtual Workshop

Co-Sponsored by SAMSI and the ASA Transportation Statistics Interest Group

The registration deadline was December 1, 2020.

This past spring, the pandemic interrupted some of the activities of the SAMSI program on Games, Decisions, Risk, and Reliability.   To round out that program, the working group on Transportation Statistics has organized a two-day virtual workshop on Dec. 7/8, 2020.  The primary focus of the workshop is on safety and autonomous vehicles, but other topics adjacent to those fields will be covered.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the American Statistical Association’s Transportation Statistics Interest Group.

Confirmed Speakers:

Anjishnu Banerjee, Medical College of Wisconsin

William Caballero, United States Air Force

Qi Alfred Chen, University of California Irvine

Eric Donnell, Pennsylvania State University

Feng Guo, Virginia Tech

Cem Hotipoglu, NHTSA

Linda Ng Boyle, University of Washington

David Rios Insua, IMAT

Vadim Sokolov, George Washington University

Rakesh Verma, University of Houston

Dawn Woodard, Uber

Fanyou Wu, Purdue University
