in Physics, Biology and Urban traffic

CIRM, Marseille, France
July 18 - August 26, 2022

Summer school

The summer school will be composed of 5 long lectures, focused on one of the applications (biology, physics, urban traffic) or on transversal themes (computer and data science) used in transport problems. They will be complemented by small talks.
