The NZ Modelling User Group (NZMugs) is a sub-group of the IPENZ Transportation Group dedicated to promote the interests of modelling within the transportation industry in NZ. It is the intention that the group will represent all aspects of modelling including static/ deterministic, micro-simulation, wide-area/ strategic modelling, pas- senger transport modelling as well as emerging areas as pedestrian and accessibility modelling. The NZMUGS Conference provides a significant opportunity for researchers, engineers, modellers and other practitioners in the transportation modelling fraternity to discuss current developments with macroscopic, static/ deterministic, micro- simulation, wide-area/ strategic modelling, passenger transport modelling as well as emerging areas such as pedestrian and accessibility modelling.

Transport Knowledge Conference 2015

Transport: past, present, future

Thursday 19 November 2015
Level 16, James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, 147 The Terrace

www.transport.govt.nz/research/conferences/transport-knowledge-conference-2015/

To ensure our transport system helps New Zealand thrive, we need to be able to understand the past, take stock of the present and anticipate the future. We also need to improve communication about the research work that is available to assist the transport sector.

The Ministry of Transport, with its partner agencies the NZ Transport Agency, Maritime New Zealand and the Civil Aviation Authority, invite you to a full-day conference. Along with Local Government NZ, they will present on strategic policy projects and research work.

This is an opportunity to learn about what the Government transport agencies are doing in the areas of research, statistics, economics and forecasting/modelling.

The inaugural NZMUGS Conference provided significant opportunity for researchers, engineers, modellers and other practitioners in the transportation modelling fraternity to discuss current developments with macroscopic, static/ deterministic, micro-simulation, wide-area/ strategic modelling, passenger transport modelling as well as emerging areas such as pedestrian and accessibility modelling.

Thursday morning began with the official formation of the New Zealand Modelling User Group and involved the appointment of a committee tasked with taking the group forward. This was followed with presentations and discussion sessions dealing with Strategic modelling. On Friday, the conference embraced micro-simulation modelling with examples of work undertaken, simulation standards, the peer review process with discussion sessions.
